Since its beginnings in the late 1970’s, High Touch Technologies has focused on pioneering client-focused technology solutions. The company launched after pinpointing a growing need for automation in the rent-to-own (RTO) industry. Once identified, High Touch engineered the first comprehensive point-of-sale (POS) system that uniquely catered to RTO companies.
By combining an expertise in high technology with customer-driven development, the company was, “bringing the human touch to technology.” Hence, the High Touch brand.
High Touch’s early focus on RTO wasn’t a coincidence—the RTO industry has deep roots in the company’s hometown of Wichita, Kan. Tom Devlin (Rent-A-Center) and Ernie Talley (Mr. T’s Rentals and ABC Rentals), fabricated the RTO concept. Both founders understood that their hardworking customers had a need, but limited resources. This same customer-centric attitude helped High Touch develop into the client-focused, customer-service-oriented company it is today.
