    Help or Helps?


    I am trying to proof read my company's corporate website and I came across the phrase below:

    .....welcome to [company name]'s online access to information that help you get the most out of your [company name] solution....

    I can't for the life of me decide whether help or helps should be there. My education tells me, "helps" but my gut feeling is that it does not matter.

    Re: Help or Helps?

    My education and my gut feeling both tell me it does matter, and it should be "helps".

    However, the entire sentence seems rather badly phrased to me. I think I'd try recasting it: it just sounds clumsy.
