What is TexAu?

TexAu is a mixture of two words — Text and Automation. Before developing our product we used to do chatbot and AI consultancy, building chatbots and automation tools for companies and businesses. Now we are a lead generation, sales and marketing engine for all the growing companies, we thought about changing the name but we felt it is too much work, deciding name, finding domain, social media usernames etc so we sticked to TexAu. In the end, product we build matters and brand name comes with it, we are focused on creating a great product — TexAu. 😊
