Using Grammarly Business, a web hosting platform up-leveled communication skills across the customer support team and helped reduce employee burnout.
Struggling with confusing support interactions, a popular web hosting platform sought out to improve the experience for their customers. The company noticed that while their customer support team had extensive knowledge of the product, that knowledge didn’t always come across clearly in written responses. Seeing the connection between grammatical issues in support tickets and low customer satisfaction (CSAT) scores. leadership began to heavily rely on team members with solid writing skills. Eventually, this led to high-performers being overburdening and other team members missing out on opportunities to improve. To help balance the workload and create a positive and productive experience across their team, the web hosting platform looked to Grammarly for support.
The company brought in Grammarly Business to help up-level the writing process across the entire customer support team. Each member created an account that integrated seamlessly with their workstations, enabling them to accept suggestions for grammar, clarity, and more in real-time.

This real-time communication coaching empowered every team member to produce higher quality writing which led to clear and consistent interactions with customers.
