Smoover was founded in 2011 and is the brainchild of web developer Steve Dean, who remains the driving force behind the company. Steve's starting point was that the legal sector appeared to be lagging behind the ever-growing demand for online services. Having recently moved house himself, he saw that the Conveyancing process lent itself to the technology.
The original concept, which remains at the heart of Smoover, is to provide a seamless real-time transfer of conveyancing information between the lawyer, the agent and most importantly the client. Web based tracking software produces instant transaction updates via the website and the app. Both clients and agents benefit, and it's free to them.
Since 2011 the company has grown and so has the concept. Additional services are now provided such as secure messaging and electronic document signing for a genuine online service and experience for the user.
In 2012 Steve brought two Directors on board: James Piddock, an experienced marketing executive and Sam Elsby, a solicitor with over 25 years in practice.
James has over 20 years experience in the marketing sector and drives the sales & development of the business using a variety of approaches. While he has developed a number of key commercial relationships, his main focus is at the core of our business namely customers and clients.
Sam is head of Legal. He has consulted widely within the legal profession on how best to structure the Smoover concept for users. He is also responsible for the implementation of our professional compliance policy, including confidentiality and security.
