By focusing on all aspects of information protection, availability and compliance, WebHouse ensures that customers get information where it's needed, when it's needed more efficiently, effectively, and with greater reliability. “Our consultative philosophy of doing business means we are more than just a reseller; we are our client’s business partner,” affirms Kerning, Founder and CEO of WebHouse. “We work closely with each customer to make sure every IT dollar is spent wisely and that the results exceed expectations,” he explains.
WebHouse has a long history of reliable services as the backbone of its business and with the arrival of industry heavyweight Bill Hogan as a partner and President, the company brings a depth that opens up distribution channels and customer/vendor relation¬ships that is typically not present in a company the size of Webhouse.“On top of our own cloud offerings we have partnerships with Sungard, Data Storage Corporation, and AWS to meet the cloud requirements of our customers,” affirms Kerning.
The company’s long time focus on NetApp as a preferred partner also gives WebHouse a sustained excellence in end-to-end support of their best partner. “Our ratio of technical to sales personnel of 5:1 is a key differentiator in our ability to bring value to the customers,” reveals Hogan.
WebHouse is not only a Platinum Partner for Netapp, Dell and Actifio, but also provides sales and services deploying products from Cisco, Vmware, NICE, Veeam and IBM as well as other emerging and niche technologies. Six Flags, City of New York, Sandler O'Neill, CUNY and GE are some of the notable customers of the firm. For an elaborate understanding of WebHouse’s prowess consider the case involving Six Flags Entertainment Corp—the world's largest amusement park corporation. Facing tough com¬petition for tourist dollars, Six Flags was looking for ways to improve business and streamline operations. The client wanted to take customer experiences to new heights by using technology to power real-time access to data about visitor behaviors, interests, and trends.WebHouse allowed Six Flags to meet these goals by standardizing Microsoft applications and VMware virtualization technologies, and deploying NetApp storage systems at a primary data center in Dallas and a remote disaster recovery facility. At the same time, WebHouse helped create identical mini data centers at the 18 theme parks to support park-specific services. All these facilities allowed individual park data to be transmitted to the primary data center. It was then aggregated through reporting and analytics tools to provide visibility into ticketing, attendance, weather, and point-of-sale data.

Moving ahead the company aims to use its successful foundation in its services business to build an inside out sales model and maintain/improve upon the 5:1 ratio of technologists to sales. “Focused primarily on the Greater NY Market and benefitting from unique vendor relationships, we plan to position our self to service small, medium and large customers in one of the largest IT markets on the planet,” concludes Hogan.
