WHI was founded as Wrenchead.com
in March of 1999 to create a B2C ecommerce channel for traditional wholesalers.
Word quickly spread from one satisfied user to another and by February of 2000
we had over 1 million visitors per month. During that time we also began to
license our technology to wholesale distributors who wanted to do business
online. That business began to grow dramatically as well and we had to make a
choice. We sold the B2C business to focus on providing better ebusiness
solutions for distributors.
Recognizing that a robust
electronic parts catalog is critical we purchased Profit Pro in 2001 and in
2003 we purchased EPC and ERP solution provider Macdonald Computer Systems to
create a complete suite of integrated solutions that helped companies cost
effectively move their business onto the web, increase sales, improve customer
service and reduce cost. Recognizing that Software as a Service was "the
only way to go", we purchased Icarz in 2006, to add the capability of
providing an integrated, web based store management solution
a result, WHI has grown into the #1 provider of web based ebusiness
applications for the Transportation Industry.
In fact, both Deliotte Touche and Inc Magazine have recognized WHI as
one of the fastest growing software companies in the country.
WHI’s “DNA” is web based
technology, or what’s currently known as “cloud computing”. This core competency is part of what set sets
us apart from other providers. That
combined with decades of unique and deep understanding of the industry is what
allows us to deliver best in class solutions.
Providing the fastest and most
reliable applications (Over 99.99% up time) in the industry and delivering 95%+
on time delivery of projects and releases is critical to our customers’
success, allowing them to be first to market with new and innovative products.
Also critical is our core competency of deep systems integration allowing
