Atlas Surveys is a survey company with offices in Newport in Wales and Wotton under Edge in Gloucestershire. It undertakes land surveys, building surveys and hydrographic surveys locally and across the country.
Recently, the company purchased a brand new state-of-the-art laser scanner from Opti-cal Survey Equipment, with a three-year Hire Purchase plan from Ignition.
The GeoSLAM ZEB-REVO is a hand-held revolving laser-scanner which can record more than 40,000 measurement points per second whilst on the move.
Justin Taylor, owner of Atlas Surveys comments:
“This is the first time we’ve considered using finance to help purchase equipment, and we’re very pleased with the result. Surveying equipment is expensive, but this way the cost is spread over three years, and we don’t need to worry about servicing, as all servicing costs are included.
“Ignition were helpful and approachable from the outset, and very quick to make a decision and provide the funds. Our new laser-scanner is already benefitting the business. Measurements we previously had to undertake manually, are now done automatically, reducing the amount of time we need to spend on site by half! As a result, we can take on more site visits per day.
“At the end of the finance term, we can decide whether to keep the kit or replace it with new equipment. In an industry where technology is moving on very quickly, it’s reassuring to have this option. We currently own six major pieces of equipment and are considering switching all of these to a finance plan in the future.”
