National Timber Group goes live with best-in-class eCommerce

The UK’s largest independent timber group, which has 55 sites, has gone live with an award-winning eCommerce solution within 16 weeks after signing a contract on Christmas Eve at 4pm.

The site, which trades under the new unified brand, Timberworld, went live with the eCommonSense platform on Thursday April 15 at 4am.

The work of the teams from both the National Timber Group and eCommonSense made a ‘Herculean’ push to get the eCommerce site ready in time for the huge increase in eCommerce demand that is predicted over the coming months. The National Timber Group will be the single biggest client for eCommonSense.

Rob Barclay, CEO of the National Timber Group, said: “We signed with a strategic partner who had the right technical skills and a knowledge of our sector. After looking at all our options, we found eCommonSense ticked all the boxes and have a track record of delivery that is second to none.”

“The other key factor was to find someone who could deploy the solution at scale and pace. I am pleased to say that, thanks to a Herculean effort from both our teams, that we have been able to go live in a time that exceeded our expectations.”

eCommonSense CEO Andy Scothern said: “We were delighted to be able to deliver a project of such magnitude in such a short space of time.”

“We have seen a huge surge in demand for our solutions as the pandemic has accelerated the trend to trade online. We expect this to continue through 2021 and we are gearing up our implementation teams to make sure that we can keep up with demand.”
