In 2012, Jewson launched its first fully transactional eCommerce website, Jewson Tools. The merchant group has significantly expanded this over the last 12 months and has subsequently been shortlisted as a finalist in the eCommerce Awards for Excellence in the Best B2B eCommerce category.
Jewson Tools joins an impressive line-up of household names to have been shortlisted, including House of Fraser, John Lewis, Toys ‘R’ Us, New Look, ASOS, Fortnum and Mason, Superdrug and Laura Ashley. These awards celebrate the very best that the eCommerce industry has to offer, from groundbreaking innovations and campaigns to revenue growth and customer service excellence, and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London on the 30th September 2015.
With Jewson Tools, the builders’ merchant set out to replicate “the excellent service that its customers have come to expect when they visit a Jewson branch”. The website now offers more than 12,000 products – alongside hand and power tools, the range has expanded to offer roof windows, garden structures, fencing and architectural ironmongery – and is said to give customers a way of purchasing that suits any schedule, from next day delivery to click and collect.
