About Us

Our Story

We are a technology solutions provider with our roots firmly planted within building sites and the building materials supply sector.

Our founder, Andy Scothern, spent the first 15 years of his career as a tradesman who owned his own building business. He got into technology in the mid 90s, which ultimately led him to be the Director of Digital and eCommerce for Jewson.  This experience gives us a deep understanding how digital can benefit your sector. 

eCommonSense is passionate about delivering digital in such a way that it improves the customer experience.

That is what makes us different.
