Since 2009, the founders of Red (E) Tools Ltd. have literally spent thousands of hours in front of the computer and with clients to forge SALOR Hospitality into a production-ready, world-class software product.

However, nothing is really for free, so we ask you give something back if you feel that our products have benefited you. We cannot accept donations, but we will be happy to do personalized consulting work for you or extend the software according to your needs.

If you can’t contract us, please recommend SALOR Hospitality to your friends and business contacts.

Wait a minute …

You are wondering how we can sell something that is free right? Well, you see working with source code, compiling applications, using git to checkout a repository, these things aren’t easy to do. SALOR Hospitality is a truly huge application with many support programs that must be configured correctly in order for them to work. While deploying SALOR isn’t exactly rocket science, it takes a few hours of compiling, downloading, and tweaking. If you lack the time or knowledge to deploy SALOR for your business, you can pay us to provide for you a fully configured plug-and-play device, complete with your items database preloaded. That is how it should be, because it is our goal to make your life in business easier and save you some time.
