Smooth Commerce was established in 2013 by Brian Deck and David Yellowlees. Having founded three profitable start-ups since 1995, Brian was an established pioneer in internet and mobile technology and payment, loyalty and sales programs and customer engagement. And as a senior executive at Intrawest Corporation and Reebok International, David has extensive experience in marketing, sales, loyalty, and sponsorship. They set out to realize on their vision of transforming commerce and customer engagement in the retail marketplace.
Powered by a robust and capable development team with a thirst for innovation, Smooth Commerce has grown from a mobile payment and loyalty app for independent businesses to a comprehensive enterprise-class platform. We deliver the most complete mobile commerce and engagement functionality for regional and national operators in multiple verticals including QSR, convenience, grocery, gas station, general retail, and arenas & stadiums.
Our mission is to drive value for our merchant customers by helping them stay current in the rapidly evolving digital landscape. We make digital and in-store purchases a convenient and enriching experience for consumers while delivering valuable data analytics and revenue growth for merchants.
The growth of Smooth Commerce has been fueled by the company’s partner-centric approach to building the business. We have established relationships and technological integrations with the leading card brands, payment acquirers and POS system providers.
Our Board of Directors and Advisors include industry leaders from the worlds of payment, loyalty, consumer marketing and finance. Smooth Commerce is a privately held Company, backed by a strong group of investors including the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE).
Smooth Commerce is headquartered in Toronto with a satellite office in New York, NY.
From the beginning, Smooth Commerce has taken a partner-centric approach to building our platform. This has led to strategic relationships and collaborations with many of the industry’s leading product and service providers, all of which serve our end goal of delivering the best possible solutions for our customers.
