Our Team

Even though we use web technology extensively in our products, our team believes there’s no substitute for direct contact with customers – whether in person, by phone, WhatsApp or email. We hope you can take some time to share your requirements with us, and look forward to continuing to sharpen our focus and rapidly evolve axle to meet the needs of the emerging market for affordable video workgroup tools.

We look forward to hearing from you at info@axle.ai or +1-617-262-9222
