Common Sense Systems

About Us

Common Ground, Common Purpose, Common Sense

Common Sense Systems was founded in 1996 by John Sambrook to provide software engineering services to high-tech companies in the Puget Sound region of Washington State, USA.

He believed (and still does) that a fresh, common-sense approach would radically improve existing methodologies and dramatically decrease the time required to bring new products into the competitive medical device marketplace.

Today Common Sense can boast of many successes in significantly and rapidly improved productivity and operational results for medical device manufacturers and other developers of high-technology products and services.

How do we do it?

Common Sense brings an expert team of software engineers and regulatory affairs experts to its clients.  But just as importantly, it provides its clients with the management tools to report on the status of all regulatory affairs and compliance engineering processes and projects to all audiences within client organizations, from design to compliance engineering to engineering and executive management. Which ensures that all product decisions are fully informed and aligned with overarching company goals.

Is it magic?

In a word, no.  In fact, the praise we are most proud of is when we are told by clients that, in the final analysis, our solutions are just common sense.  To us, that means that our services seem natural, are non-disruptive to implement and deliver very obvious procedural and financial rewards.

We are located in the Greater Seattle technology hub of Washington State, in the USA. If you’d like to chat about how we can be of service, please contact us today.
