Social Business Software Company

About us

Hello. We are Axero.

A quick introduction:

  1. We are on a mission to enable people to lead their own social initiatives.
  2. We are extremely passionate — we   what we do.
  3. We are based in sunny San Diego, but we work from all over the globe.
  4. We believe that social software isn’t about technology—it's about people.
  5. We value transparency, respect, and sincerity in everything we do.
  6. We consider pleasing customers the most important part of our job.
  7. We listen to you, our customers, who drive our product innovation.
  8. We're a small company that works very hard to keep your trust.
  9. We are profitable and debt free.
  10. We owe neither money nor allegiance to anyone else.
  11. We owe everything to our customers.

We don't just say we're different.
We back it up in everything we do.

We are fanatical about pleasing our customers.


From our first engagement through the trial of the software, our focus is on determining if Communifire is the right solution for you. Often times, of course, it is. But sometimes it is not, and we admit that, and we can suggest alternatives. We're not hard sellers and we're not going to pressure you into anything you're not comfortable with. We promise.


Everyone at Axero is part of our customer support team and considers pleasing customers as the most integral part of their job description. Even if a resolution requires a response from senior management, we'll answer quickly, honestly, and creatively to get the issue solved. Our success is tied directly to your success, so it's our job to meet your expectations.

Product development

Our customers have a very strong voice when it comes to planning our development road-map. It's how Communifire grows and evolves. Since the beginning, we’ve been working with customers to expand the value of social business, knowledge management, and collaboration into new areas. Focusing on creating useful functionality and solutions.


We would rather earn rave reviews from our customers than yell at the market about how great we are. We take an educational approach to marketing by actively sharing helpful and actionable  information through our blog and resources. Our customers appreciate this because it means that our focus stays on them. And with less marketing to pay for, our prices are lower than other packages offering similar functionality.

We wrote the book on ASP.NET architecture

Authored and edited by our co-founders, Vivek Thakur and Tim Eisenhauer, you'll learn how to develop better web applications in ASP.NET with strong focus on practical aspects of software architecture and design.

"Although the title states that book is for ASP.NET 3.5 application architecture and design, you will be able to take these concepts well beyond ASP.NET. The concepts here can be used for all software development."

-- Joseph Guadagno
President of the Southeast Valley .NET User Group

We Have Humble Beginnings

We started Axero without any money in our pockets and we've never accepted investments. We are a profitable company.

We are Bootstrapped & Proud

Our first office space was directly above a creative ceramics factory. We learned that 'less is more' and 'form follows function.'

Always Thinking About Tomorrow

Everyday we grow and learn something new. We are extremely thankful and fortunate for this opportunity.
