Improper spelling, grammar, and punctuation gives a bad impression of your company and can result in your message not being conveyed correctly. Emails with no full stops or commas are difficult to read and can sometimes even change the meaning of the text. And, if your program has a spelling checking option, why not use it?

Web Content

When on a web page, install Grammarly Addon for Chrome so you can automatically check web content. For example, while editing in a CMS.
