Chicago-based software company RedMane Technology LLC is opening a new southeast regional office in Little Rock. Headquartered in Chicago since its founding in 2000, RedMane specializes in health and human services systems modernization for public sector enterprises. In April, the software solutions and systems integration firm partnered with the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) Division of Children and Family Services to launch ARfocus on a large-scale technology modernization project will create a statewide Comprehensive Child Welfare Information System to help enhance DCFS’ support for Arkansas children, families and caregivers.
“We are excited to join the Little Rock community,” said Tony Lakier, RedMane founder and president. “Working shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients helps us deliver better project results. Our new Little Rock office gets us closer to our clients. It will be a hub for innovation and collaboration for our work throughout the southeast.”
RedMane will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the office at 400 West Capitol Avenue on Monday, June 6 at 4:30 p.m. Tony Lakier and other RedMane executives will join local and state government officials at the event. The location will support RedMane’s projects in Arkansas, Mississippi and Georgia to modernize their state child welfare programs. It will host high-tech jobs, such as software developers, systems analysts, project managers and staff with deep technical and functional domain skills. Personnel will work on projects across the U.S.
The State of Arkansas selected RedMane through a competitive bid process to design, develop, implement, maintain and operate the CCWIS. RedMane will deploy ARfocus on mCase, its purpose-built, cloud-based platform that enables interoperability and case coordination. Once complete, the state will use ARfocus to strengthen families through prevention, improve foster care for those who need it and better support its workforce.
