HiTen has teamed up with ACT Building Systems, the leading cold formed engineering software in The United States. Together, we have created the most comprehensive design and order management software for the Australian steel building market, fully compliant to local building codes and is ShedSafe certified.

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

HiTen’s revenues are derived by a small transaction fee charged to all participating suppliers – not to distributors.  We do not mark up the material costs, engineering, or software fees, providing HiTen distributors with the best opportunity to make sales.
