Extension Highlight: Grammarly

When we use Wellsite Report, we often find ourselves wishing for a few extras, small things that can bring our reports to the next level and guarantee that we present the most professional side of our organization. It’s a desire most companies have: how do you stand out and make sure you’re more than ordinary?

Browser extensions are the perfect way to add the little something extra to your business. There are hundreds of thousands of browser extensions, many of them free, and range from organizational helpers to productivity enhancers. On this blog, we’ll regularly share some of the favorites we use in conjunction with Wellsite Report that make us stand out. First and foremost is our all-time favorite!

Grammarly

Have you ever typed up a thorough report in Wellsite Report? Maybe it was a Key Report or Best Practice that was meant to be internal; maybe it was a report meant to go out to your Operator. Either way, these reports are not only a reflection of the company but also you, the author. Sending a report with grammar mistakes can be embarrassing, especially when its dispersed widely or to a business partner. While our inline WYSIWYG editor is great for formatting or styling your content, it does little to assist with grammatical mistakes, and that’s where Grammarly comes in.

Grammarly describes itself as a free writing assistant. Immediate responses to grammar mistakes as you type help you avoid the awkward moment when you realize you sent your Operator an important report with the wrong there – or was it their? Ensuring that your reports are grammatically accurate may seem like a small detail in a larger picture, but you’d be surprised: at its worst, improper grammar has led to costly lawsuits. When you use proper grammar, you’re viewed more favorably by superiors, business partners, potential clients, and your peers. It’s even been proven to increase productivity because there are fewer misunderstandings, meaning fewer meetings and emails needed to clarify mistakes. We love how Grammarly works with Wellsite Report and know that you’ll find it beneficial, too.

Full disclosure: I used Grammarly to write this blog and found I overuse commas. I also apparently can’t spell “embarrassing”. Oops.

The Importance of Securing Site Assets

  Jodi Rell, who served as the 87th governor of Connecticut, said, “At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.” How very true. Yet while the goals may be simple, the means to achieve them can be complex and costly. The oil and gas industries require multiple insurances: general liability, […]
