Brand story

In January 2023,
AI-powered English proofreader
has been rebranded to

“Pcanpi” was a homage to the sweet and delicious pecan pie. Although the name “Pcanpi”
was sweet and lovable, “Pcanpi” did not reflect the main services of the site which include the
grammar check and
AI proofreader. For this reason, we came up with “Engram,” a name that is
not only more intuitive and easy to remember but also embodies the essence of our service.
