Response Letter to a Complaint

Response Letter to a ComplaintIntroduction

As a service or a product oriented enterprise, a company is bound to receive complaints about their products. In such cases, it is professional to acknowledge the complaint and responding to it. Not paying heed to the complaint is extremely unprofessional and can lead to the bad branding of the company.

The company writes a Response letter to a Complaint in response to a complaint received. The letter refers to the complaint of the customer and addresses the issue of the complaint, hopefully providing a satisfactory reason or solution to appease the customer. A response letter projects a good image of the company to the customer. This is a formal letter and should, therefore, begin with a long and sincere apology on behalf of the company about the pending complaint. Do mention what the company can do on its end to rectify the error. Provide compensation to the customer/consumer wherever necessary.
