Why Red Hawk?

We understand what makes mid-market companies tick. Ron Dunlevy and Matt Strippelhoff established Red Hawk Technologies in May 2008 after a decade of working as colleagues in Cincinnati’s burgeoning tech startup and digital marketing industry. Because they were involved in the early years of developing, designing and marketing sophisticated web applications and system integrations, the partners recognized how quickly these things would come to revolutionize the way we work and live. 

With the founding of Red Hawk, they were able to wholeheartedly pursue their passion for using technology in novel and creative ways to improve efficiency, lower costs and increase profits for their customers. This has resulted in the development of SaaS and PaaS products, as well as custom apps and system integrations for companies ranging in size from startups to the Fortune 500.

The majority of Red Hawk's work today falls into three categories: workflow automation, sales enablement and systems integration. Red Hawk also serves as the outsourced innovation team for several clients, collaborating closely with client IT and marketing teams. From feasibility studies to fully featured applications, Red Hawk focuses on delivering measurable value with every initiative.
