After M-Dot was acquired in 2011 by retail transaction processing giant Inmar, Inc., Catania stayed on as VP of Digital Solutions, leading Inmar to a best-in-class position, with its installation network of over 20,000 retail locations across North America.
A graduate of Cornell University, Catania studied Applied Economics and Political Science, and was a Cornell Tradition Fellow. While a student, he founded the motorsports/E-Commerce business RaceFan, Inc., which rapidly grew to become one of the nation’s premier online motorsports informational sites. An avid racing fan, Catania has owned and driven stock cars since he was 17, and raced at Daytona International Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series. He can still be found competing today throughout the southeast. At RaceFan, Bill negotiated the purchase of several major dot-com properties, scaling network traffic to over 20 million page views per month, while syndicating its racing news and results to media giants such as Fox Sports, PRIMEDIA and NASCAR.com.
Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, OneRail was founded in 2018 by Bill Catania, a serial entrepreneur from the FinTech world, and his wife, Lisa Catania. OneRail is a final mile delivery orchestration platform providing real-time visibility, actionable data, and data-driven optimization capabilities for its enterprise clients. OneRail’s cloud-based “delivery switch” simplifies same-day and on-demand delivery execution by connecting the demand signal (POS, eCommerce, ERP) with an ecosystem of delivery networks and internal fleets, in real-time. The result of OneRail’s centralized view of disparate final mile data enables data-driven optimization, positively impacting the dependability, speed, and cost of final mile fulfillment.
