Richard Pike Associates: Financing Tomorrows Technology

S. Francis, Chatsbrook


In the contemporary world, the majority of companies rely on technology to successfully run their business. At Chatsbrook, we understand that technology empowers businesses, so investing in equipment with a flexible finance product is a smart solution. Our client Richard Pike Associates are now benefitting from financing new software and hardware.

Richard Pike Associates are building, design and planning specialists that help clients to achieve their dream home. They work with individuals looking to remodel a conservatory, all the way through to working with some of the largest housebuilders and housing associations in the UK. Much like Chatsbrook, they cater to client’s individual needs which can include organising contractors and providing technical drawings on projects. Their aim is to “to deliver high quality, innovative building and design solutions with outstanding customer service in a supportive work environment to exceed our client’s expectations.”

Richard Pike Associates have been working with Chatsbrook for a little over a year now, and during that time we have helped RPA to finance state of the art software and hardware.

“We used to primarily use AutoCAD and still do use it sometimes but now the new ArchiCAD software which we funded is far more advanced for Architecture. It allows us to do realistic 3D design as if you were building it with the actual materials on screen, rather than just drawing lines, you use objects such as bricks and insulation. This means more accuracy and less issues when a builder goes to build it. Time wise the new software takes more time to use but less issues and revisions down the line.

The new Hardware financed was the new printer/plotter/scanner. Before we had a 10 year old plotter which would take minutes to print out an A1 drawing. Now the new one will print in around 20 seconds. This obviously saves a lot of time!”

The benefits reaped by contemporary hardware and software financed through Chatsbrook, not only benefits the team of Richard Pike Associates, but their customers too. As they are afforded an efficient and flexible service that can keep up with the changing needs of RPA’s customers- and within budget. 

Financing new hardware and software can be beneficial to most businesses, as like Richard Pike Associates can attest, it frees up cash flow and allows you to keep up with changing markets and technological progression- allowing you to maintain a competitive edge and technical flair. 

Chatsbrook pride itself in providing a personal service to each of our clients. RPA continue to use our services as we offer competitive, tailor made finance packages to suit a range of assets.
