Clients for grammar check software and writing training

With thousands of satisfied clients—from individual teachers and students to huge organizations such as the World Bank, the United Nations, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the Federal Reserve—ClearWriter’s writing training tools can help everyone write clear, compelling prose in less time.

Read on to find out how we’ve helped our clients.

Flexible writing training for the United Nations
The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa needed writing training for its staff. But some writers wanted instructor-led workshops, while others preferred to work at their own pace and on their own schedule. The ClearWriter product suite met the needs of both groups. Short workshops introducing learners to the online courses encouraged them to start the online training program. Day-long workshops combined the online and classroom lessons—with writers completing several online exercises before starting the classroom training. Two-day content planning sessions got report teams off to a faster start.

Faculty at American University save time teaching basic writing skills
At the American University School of Communications grammar and good writing have always been essential elements of Writing for Mass Communication. Required for all students in the school, the course provided a foundation in effective writing skills for print and broadcast journalism, public relations, and public service. Realizing that the faculty were spending too much time teaching basic writing skills, American decided to run a pilot program to explore integrating ClearWriter into the course curriculum.

The pilot convinced American University to integrate ClearWriter into all sections of the course, making it one of two “textbooks” for the class. Professors could continuously monitor student progress on ClearWriter’s interactive courses and assign pre-tests, midterms, and finals that are taken online and scored automatically.

ClearWriter workshops help tax professionals write more efficiently
Tax professionals have to write coherent memos that clearly communicate the findings of their research. It’s a business where the costs of misunderstanding can be huge. An industry training leader sought out ClearWriter to develop a two-day writing workshop tailored to the needs of big-four accounting firms.

The first day of the workshop guides participants through planning and drafting a tax research memo. The second introduces techniques for self-editing and for writing tight sentences and paragraphs. Before the workshop participants review the facts and authorities for a tax question and completed modules from ClearWriter’s online training, allowing instructors to focus on writing techniques during the workshop. And because participants retain access to the online training, a refresher is only a click away. Follow-up assignments reinforce the techniques imparted in the workshops, with ClearWriter editors offering comments and suggestions.

ClearWriter helps business communicate globally
FCS Business Solutions—a global technology consulting firm—needed writing training for its consultants, especially those whose first language was not English. With offices worldwide and employees traveling frequently, FCS sought a scalable training solution that it could implement globally. One flexible enough to fit any schedule.

FCS selected ClearWriter, offering the interactive online training courses to all employees. FCS was impressed by the ease of signing up for ClearWriter through a custom registration page and by the Administrative Module, which allowed the training department to oversee the progress of learners worldwide.
