Chris Torbit, Managing PartnerFor organizations looking to implement new technology to upscale their operations, it is essential for them to find the right partner to guide them during the restructuring process. An erroneous induction can cause massive disruption, financial loss to the firm, and eventual expulsion from market spaces. Partnering with Microsoft, one managed service provider (MSP), Wheelhouse Solutions, is aiding companies in the new age enterprise arena to move past their worries while automating their IT infrastructures. “We have an impeccable strategy that involves four stages—consult, design, implement, and support—to deliver to our customers a great experience,” says Chris Torbit, Managing Partner, Wheelhouse Solutions.
The systematic process that Wheelhouse has, enables them to understand the products and services its customers are utilizing at their bases. Once an estimation of their current workflow is established, WheelHouse designs a strategy that allows its clients to find areas where they can leverage Microsoft technologies to drive better results. The implementation of the solutions occurs around Office 365 and Azure as well as other Microsoft software. Besides restructuring the system architecture, Wheelhouse also offers continuous support to the organizations to keep them up-to-date at all times. To provide these services, the consulting firm employs a team of experts who are well-versed in the many technologies that Microsoft deploys. The professionals are in constant touch with the latest events in the Microsoft arena and attend regular on-site and virtual training sessions to stay on top of the changes in the products of the technological superpower.
Presently, most organizations are looking to not only be protected against cyberattacks from both internal and external forces, but also to have control and visibility of their internal teams. For instance, an employee who has left the organization may still have access to critical information in case the correct policies were not followed during their exit procedure. Wheelhouse is rectifying this issue by activating Microsoft Active Directory to have better interoperability with the multiple solutions and operating systems deployed at enterprises.

“Today nothing is standalone like it used to be; it is all integrated so when you touch one program you are really touching a multitude of solutions,” explains Torbit. Wheelhouse’s all-out operations automation solution allows IT teams at firms to breathe easier knowing that their sensitive data is safe and that there can be no damage caused to their establishment.
Recently the skills of the experts from Wheelhouse were put to the test when a large conglomerate with more than 6000 operations in progress approached them to bring it all under a single common structure. The whole process stack and applications were moved into a systems infrastructure that allows for Office 365 and Azure compatibility, ensuring clients the best of both worlds, on-premise, and also on the cloud. With the entire process being completed on time and under budget, Wheelhouse proceeded to enable the customer to design a Microsoft roadmap. The proposed plan empowered the client to actualize future solutions and services, institutionalized transversely over Office 365, Active Directory, and Azure.
Wheelhouse’s successful partnership with Microsoft has enabled it to double its business and the MSP has also grown in team strength, adding more certified experts to its already excellent taskforce. Geographically, Wheelhouse Solutions operates across the U.S., and the company is looking to further expand past the country’s borders. With more organizations moving their datasets to the cloud, Wheelhouse is looking to create a bigger footprint in that space as well over the coming months.
