Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Swansea Entrepreneur Looks to Expand his Business to Cover All of South Wales


An entrepreneur from Swansea is looking to expand his business just a year after launching.

Richard Ryan became a licensee for VeriSmart, using unique technology to create paper-free inventories for letting agents and landlords.

Now he is looking to take on a clerk as he develops the business with the aim of creating a whole team to cover South Wales.

Richard Ryan - VerismartAlready, Richard operates across the Swansea, Cardiff and Port Talbot areas and now has his eye on Newport, too.

His astonishing growth has been helped by the increasing rental sector and the Rent Smart Wales legislation that matched VeriSmart’s own existing high standards.

The business involves using the copyrighted system including voice recognition technology to create inventories.

But Richard also provides additional services including Legionaries’ testing and correct C0 and smoke alarm testing.

The 32-year-old, who is player-coach for Welsh League One football side Goytre United, Port Talbot, said:

“From a standing start a year ago I am now looking to expand and take on someone else.

“The VeriSmart system is the best out there and when agents try us out they never go back because it is so good and it saves them so much time.

“Inventories include detailed descriptions, photographs and all necessary details – and a comprehensive, quickly compiled document protects tenants and agents.

“I invested with VeriSmart because I wanted my own business and it’s been really worthwhile. I’ve had great training and support and in a year’s time I hope to have grown the business substantially.”
