Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

Creates a case file for you

Your case file is a secure online location for all important documents regarding your issue. You can upload photos, tickets, copies of receipts or external emails from before you raised your issue with Resolver.

Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Excellent tool. I have managed to recoup nearly £1800 from PPI - highly recommended this to everyone. It has templates and follow up prompts. Do not waste your money with PPI companies. Use Resolver!

Without Resolver, I wasn't getting anywhere with my complaint with Safestyle UK. I had been liaising with them for 4 months but no response until I was informed about Resolver. I used their templates, I was able to escalate the complaint to their CEO. I received £70 compensation from them.. Great result...thank you Resolver. I will let all my friends know about you!
