Unlocking the benefits of supply chain synergies

The search for, analysis of, and evolutionary influence over supply chain synergies is one of the most dynamic and potentially beneficial practices in business today.

HiTouch Business Services , the parent company of Rentacrate, the nation’s leading supplier of plastic moving crates and dollies, was literally created to integrate the service offerings of its now nine distinct operating units under one company in order to capitalize on real synergies that exist within the enterprise-wide solutions offered by the company. The collective offerings of HiTouch all focus on necessary business services and tangible goods: facilities management, move management, space and asset utilization and tracking, various managed services including managed print services, operational supply chain sourcing and fulfillment, and a vast range of tangibles including office supplies, office furniture and fixtures, IT hardware and software, right down to coffee and even bottled and filtered water.

“The depth and breadth of talent and experience we have assembled across the organization is our greatest strength,” stated Joe Aiello, Co-President of HiTouch Business Services, “Our distinct operating units each bring to the table highly competitive if not best in market offerings in their various arenas. The greater benefit our organization delivers is our ability to understand and capitalize on cost saving and productivity and efficiency improvement opportunities across the enterprise as we develop and deploy solutions for our clients.”

Over the past few months, HiTouch has been selected by JLL Partners clients for a variety of enterprise solutions. Bank of America and Fidelity both expanded their relationship with Rentacrate from simple crate/equipment rentals to the company’s Sustainable Move Solutions providing complete move management services across broad geographic territories, and Ally Bank which also started as a Rentacrate client is now working with ITSimplify.
