    Default correct expression

    Hi,

    could you please tell me, whether the word "possibilities" is correctly used here or whether there is a better expression:

    Our services in the area of care are always specifially and individually customized to match the company possibilities and current development.

    Thank you very much.

    I'm not sure I completely understand the point you are making in the sentence but I think the word you are looking for is "needs". I'd phrase it:

    ...customized to match the immediate needs of the company and its future development.


    See what other advice you get.

    I think it is not "needs". It should be something like "capacities", i.e. means and facilities available to the company.
