autotext.me is dead! (Ok, well not really; it’s more like we are becoming a butterfly!)
We have decided to change our name from autotext.me to autoflow. This was a hard decision and has been in the works for over a year. Since the inception of our original product, we’ve simply outgrown our name. Though autotext.me was once fitting, it now falls very short of properly representing us and the spectrum of digital products we offer. It’s time to spread our wings and fly.
We were asked the question about 200 times a day, “Wow, you do more than texting?” At first, we focused on workflow and communication (texting) and since then have added multiple products including a Digital Vehicle Inspection, Digital Work Order, Digital Quality Control Inspection, and a Rewards and Referral program. And, there is a LOT more coming in 2018.
I am excited and honestly scared because of the unknown future. I remember when changing the name of my auto repair shop from Lonestar Auto Repair to Golden Rule Auto Care, I had the same feelings then. That name change fortunately worked out well. However, I also remember back when I was touring in my band that I observed other bands who changed their name, and it turned out to be their kiss of death. They would break up within a week, and that concern has always stuck with me.
The thing about some choices is you never know whether they were good or poor until a year or two after making them!
Exciting and scary…the world of an entrepreneur!

As an auto repair shop owner of Golden Rule Auto Care, Chris Cloutier realized the need for a better way to communicate with his customers as he observed how communication gaps created bottleneck situations and wasted valuable rack time. With 20+ years experience as a software developer including employment stints at Southwest Airlines and Wyndham International, Chris had seen the benefits of the marriage of software and customer service. With the entrepreneurial passion to create an innovative solution to solve a common industry problem, Chris designed autoflow, a tool that dually functions as a visual workflow management system and as a means for keeping customers engaged and informed by providing status updates throughout the stages of the vehicle repair process.
