Benefits with HiTen by your side..

HiTen has teamed up with ACT Building Systems, the leading cold formed engineering software provider in the U.S. Together, we have created the most sophisticated shed design and order management software for the Australian market, fully compliant to Australian building codes and ShedSafe certified.

We provide HiTen independent distributors with the latest, cutting-edge technology to design and order-manage steel shed packages with their preferred suppliers.

HiTen’s revenues are derived by a transaction fee charged to all participating suppliers, much like Amazon or eBay.  We do not mark up the material costs, engineering, or software fees, providing shed businesses and builders with the best opportunity to make sales.
