About Us

Fueled by our infinite passion to better address the needs of our customers, we've been adding to the simplicity and depth of the Spa/Salon Manager since 1985. Today, our most advanced version wraps all the Spa/Salon bookwork into a beautiful package that is exceptionally easy to use.

We are not just a software company. Kent Crabtree worked in his parents salon for three years before starting Spa/Salon Manager to help them manage their salon with a software program. His parents operated the salon for 44 years until 2016 when they turned over the business to Kent to continue the legacy.

With 18 employees at the salon, Kent is once again more involved at the salon to make the salon software more efficient by gaining first hand experience. Visit our salon at Castilian and Company to see our salon business.

Everyone says, experience is the best teacher and Castilian and Company Hair Salon and Spa provides us with experience to make our software the best it can be!
