Overall Satisfaction with Grammarly

Grammarly has two jobs at Perimeter Investments. We use it to cut down on mistakes, particularly in things we publish. Few things are more embarrassing than typos on web pages or other publications. The Microsoft Word grammar and style checker just does not do a good enough job. Word missed too many errors, does not understand structure or content as well as Grammarly. We also use it to improve our writing and delivery. Grammarly suggests great words and lets us know when our sentences don't work well. For this job we also use the readability statistics in Microsoft Word. Should Grammarly provide readability stats, we would stop using Microsoft's Style Checker.
  • Grammarly seems better to understand context and vocabulary than alternatives.
  • Grammarly's online thesaurus is amazing. We use it when we are stuck and we pay a lot of attention to its suggestions as we are developing a document.
  • Grammarly seems to think about vocabulary and sentence structure more than other packages. It picks up repetitive words and sentences and suggests improvements. This is critical when you are working on a first draft. Grammarly definitely improves our writing.
  • Grammarly is very reliable. We used WhiteSmoke for several years and it ultimately lost us because it was unreliable. It would not start, crashed often, and its advice deteriorated. Grammarly is as solid as any app we use.
  • I would love readability statistics, preferably better and more reliable than Microsoft's.
  • I would like it if I could turn Grammarly loose on a draft and identify improvements and then go back and review all of the improvements in context. Many years ago, RightWriter worked this way. Yes, Grammarly gets you close to this but unfortunately misses the mark.
  • Jargon and Technical Terms: I would like it if Grammarly let me know that jargon and technology terms were destroying the prose. Some of this is there. Maybe there would be a way to put these together.
  • Identifying errors
  • Suggesting improvements
  • Its immediate usability by almost any one we hire to write for us.
  • Grammarly makes us look more professional and like a larger company.
  • I don't know how to measure the ROI of errors avoided. In my mind it approaches infinity.
  • Improving one's language always improves the reading experience.
Grammarly was easier to use and more straight forward than WhiteSmoke. Microsoft's proofing misses too many errors and its style advice often misses the mark. Grammarly's commentary is on the money. WhiteSmoke and Microsoft are too fascinated by their technology and expanding "check the box" functions that they miss the boat.

Grammarly helps you publish cogent, correct documents. It helps in every phase of writing. While drafting, it lets you know when you have obscured your message. In editing, it is brilliant at picking apart errors and suggesting remedies. This means it is an ideal product for production environments. Microsoft's tools fall short and seem to miss obvious errors. Our experience with White Smoke was OK. Grammarly is simply easier to use and more accurate. My one wish is that it had readability scoring so that we could better-set standards.
