ToMiLo UG focused on libraries for the automotive market. To extend the business towards new markets and applications, ToMiLo UG needs a change in its legal form, and the UG was sent into liquidation, lasting till end of 2018.
In the meantime I'm active as free lancer again.
License contracts remain valid. Upon request a new license contract can be sent cost-free.
Why? The automotive industry shows a growing interest in Open Source Software (OSS). ToMiLo UG (haftungsbeschränkt) was founded in January 2016 in order to fulfill this interest.
What are the advantages of OSS? OSS gives you early access to new technology. Our OSS fulfills highest standards and uses state-of-the-art technologies to provide multi-platform support, highest quality, best performance, and usability.
What is the business model? Our software is offered with a fair dual-license business model. With the GNU General Public License (GPL) you can review and test our software, while the commercial license is required as soon as you intend to use our software for commercial purposes.
Who are the customers? ToMiLo support manufacturers, suppliers and customers in the development of embedded systems, and supporting tools, mainly in the Automotive Industry.
