QASSS has launched Dispute Assist to give companies and their customers access to its Alternative Dispute Resolution service at a nominal price.

In a similar way to a pre-paid cover plan, Dispute Assist is enacted at the point of purchase, protecting businesses and consumers for six years should a dispute arise. Pricing is per job or installation which works out at a price of typically around £5 -£15 per installation, given average contract values.

The service is all-inclusive including free inspections, forensic reports and Ombudsman access.

QASSS managing director Ciarán Harkin said“Take up of Alternative Dispute Resolution has been relatively slow in many sectors, frustrated by lengthy resolution, a lack of awareness of the benefits of using ADR, and the high cost impact to both consumers and businesses. 

“We wanted to change that and take away any barriers to make our industry-leading ADR accessible and affordable for all. In short, right price, no risk and cashflow neutral.”
