What Does "Albi" Mean?
A lot of clients and prospects ask “Why Albi?”. Albi is a name very dear to us here with a lot of meaning.
When they were coming up with the name of their new venture, Shamoil and Alex were looking for a female futuristic name to incorporate with their future AI mission.
As they were bouncing around names, Albi stuck stuck out to them. 2 years ago Alex made a promise to the mother of his soulmate in a letter while she was on her death bed that he would take care of her daughter, protect her, and be there for her.
“Alby” was her nickname. She was innovative – the only one out of 7 sisters that took the initiative to get her driver’s license. She raised her 3 children alone, was passionate about what she did and loved helping people. She was a strong believer in social responsibility and helping others.
The name still lives with us today – we need more people in the world like her. Albi is an innovative product; it listens to the behaviors of employees and reports back on that. Albi will be the first product with advanced AI in the restoration industry. Albi is a product created by a passion for change.
Both founders have spent sleepless nights on top of their daily 9-5 jobs to create something different. Both founders have a prior history of passion within the restoration and software industries.
They harbor a passion for meaningful change. Here at Albi we believe in social responsibility. We put the well being of our clients, employees, and vendors before our profits.
