About Credosity 

Credible, readable communication

Want to improve your business writing?

Credosity is a just-in-time learning tool for faster, better writing at work. Credosity works inside Microsoft Word and Outlook – the enterprise writing tools you know best. It helps you find and fix the ‘worst first’ to make your documents and emails consistently clear, concise and credible.

We’re fed up with people not realising their writing is bad. And that it’s killing their productivity, business and careers.

It’s time for a change, and we’re leading it.
Good academic writing ISN’T good business writing. We need to KISS. Now.

Get aboard the clarity train. It’s leaving the station!

Our vision

​To boost global efficiency by simplifying the world’s business writing.

Our mission

Reduce the time it takes for enterprise employees to create clear, concise, engaging and persuasive communication.

Our big WHY: Raising the global literacy rate

In Australia, only one in five children in remote indigenous communities can read at a minimum standard. When you use Credosity, you’re part of our dream to raise the literacy rate by supporting the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) in Australia.

Globally: If all students in low-income countries left primary school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty – the equivalent of a 12% drop in world poverty.

Here’s more about the problem we need to solve together. Once equipped with the power of reading, children have greater opportunities, become life-long learners, and realise their full potential. Sound like a better world to you? It does to us.
