Designed specifically for the building materials supply sector, eCommonSense integrates with the most common business management systems so that builders’ merchants can “improve efficiency, grow profitably and increase customer satisfaction”. The platform has seen significant growth over the last 18 months as merchants increasingly looked at investing in or enhancing their eCommerce capabilities to help overcome some of the trading challenges brought about by the pandemic.
eCommonSense will join ECI’s LBM and Hardlines group, which will “leverage eCommonSense as both an integration to its cloud-based ERP solutions as well as a standalone global eCommerce solution”.
Andy Scothern, CEO and founder of eCommonSense, said: “When I first entered into a partnership with ECI, I was struck by how similar our missions were: to provide building suppliers and merchants with the technology they need to create the strongest businesses possible. As I’ve gotten to know ECI better, I’ve grown in my conviction that they are the right partner to help us scale, and I am looking forward to seeing what we accomplish together.”
ECI CEO Trevor Gruenewald added: “ECI’s vision is to be the world leader in vertically specific cloud software solutions while always delivering new value to our customers and the markets we serve. Adding eCommonSense to ECI’s portfolio and investing to grow it into a true global solution will allow us to give our customers — and the LBM industry — the eCommerce capabilities they need to stay competitive in today’s market.”
