About Us

Persolvo Data Systems is the leading aggregator of account information of debtors enrolled in Debt Settlement Programs. The Persolvo Web-based settlement portal, CONCERTO 3.0, was created to bridge the gap between creditors, debt buyers and collection agencies and leading debt settlement companies. The system uncovers lost settlement opportunities by locating hard to find debtors with highly-liquid settlement savings accounts enrolled in Debt Settlement Programs.

Using CONCERTO 3.0, creditors, debt buyers and collection agencies can immediately locate these hard to find debtors, analyze the pre-approved savings balances of individual debtors, submit lump sum or term settlement offers to multiple debt settlement companies simultaneously, and monitor or evaluate accounts for future settlement opportunities.

The Persolvo system provides the most up-to-date information about debtors enrolled in Debt Settlement Programs and provides a streamlined process to evaluate and maximize portfolio liquidation rates while being able to submit bulk settlement offers to multiple Debt Settlement Companies with just the click of a mouse.

Persolvo’s CONCERTO 3.0 system exposes lost settlement opportunities while significantly lowering the cost of collections and increasing liquidity rates.
