ECI Software Solutions acquires eCommonSense

ECI Software Solutions, the cloud-based business management solutions firm with headquarters in Lincoln, has completed the acquisition of Merchant Systems Group Limited, the developer of the eCommonSense® platform, an eCommerce and product data management solution designed for lumber & building materials, hardware / home centre and related home supply dealers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

eCommonSense, based in Nottinghamshire, 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.

“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,” said Trevor Gruenewald, CEO, ECI.

“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.”

“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,” said Andy Scothern, CEO and founder, eCommonSense.

“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.”
