"We needed to introduce a programme of upgrading our IT estate and leasing through CHG-MERIDIAN enabled us to achieve this over a number of years. By leasing the equipment, we were able to spread the cost over 3 years which meant we were able to buy more equipment than if we had to pay for it all up-front. Leasing also enabled us to put in a 3-year replacement programme and budgeting for equipment refreshes became much easier. The team at CHG have always provided an excellent service from obtaining initial quotes right through to collecting equipment at the end of the lease.”

We need to make the right financial decisions, and when you are in an established relationship you can hold sensible discussions and obtain the flexibility we feel is important to us.

CHG recognise and respond to the extra attention the College needs during this period. You don’t always get that with a service relationship!”
“We were looking for a way of introducing iPad technology into the school. Our goal was to put our students at the forefront of the digital revolution: engaging, challenging and motivating them to explore new ways of learning both in and out of the classroom. Of course, finance and cash flow is always an issue for us being a school relying on Government funding, so we needed to explore different avenues of finance. CHG helped us unlock the various leasing options available to schools and provided us with assistance at every stage of the process. Through this leasing option, they have helped us roll out this iPad program throughout the whole school and we look forward to working with them on new projects in the future.”
