Reply to ""That" as a relative pronoun after a possessive determiner?"

Hello, Maynor, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

@Maynor posted:

"DataFriend is our software that maximizes your efficiency."

Your sentence above does not sound right because "that maximizes your efficiency" is a defining or restrictive relative clause, and "our software" is definite enough to be further defined.

This might sound better, but it may be commercially awkward:

- DataFriend is the software of ours that maximizes your efficiency.

Alternatively, you could just say:

- Our DataFriend software maximizes your efficiency.
