Got into an argument with my boss and came out thoroughly confused.
Should the "its " appear with an apostrophe ?
" services company dedicated to making its customers more
productive"

Tell your boss to buy a dictionary.

"Its" (no apostrophe) is possessive.
"It's" (with apostrophe) is a contraction of "it is."

It's a common mistake; "its" is the only possessive that isn't formed by
adding an apostrophe.


Have fun,
