Automation Obstacles: Cash Flow

Posted by RT Engineering on July 12, 2016

Today’s manufacturers are tasked with the challenge of remaining competitive, while doing more with less. While many companies realize their need for an automation solution in order to remain competitive in the global marketplace, one of the most common hurdles putting a halt on their transition to automation is cash flow. As a leading provider of custom automation solutions with more than 40 years of experience, RT Engineering Corporation has seen companies in this same position time and again. 

Automation can provide high ROI for companies looking to optimize production operations—and the right solution can demonstrate quick payback. However, your new equipment cannot offer ROI until it is in operation, and depending on the project, it will take months to complete. So, although automation may seem like a great solution, many companies are unable to pay for machinery that won’t be delivered for some time.

Thankfully, cash flow is no longer an issue with RT Engineering Corporation. We recently developed a Commercial Equipment Financing Program to help our customers hold onto their cash until their equipment is delivered and operating to produce revenue.

With many automation providers’ traditional payment models, companies must pay for approximately 90% of the equipment prior to delivery. With RT’s Commercial Equipment Financing Program, we will work with you to obtain a business loan, and then set up a custom monthly payment plan with you after delivery. With our financing options, your total cash outlay prior to delivery can be as low as 1-2% of the total project cost, so that you are not paying large amounts for a machine that isn’t in operation.

RT Engineering Corporation’s primary goal is to keep our customers competitive in the global marketplace through the use of automation solutions that enhance productivity, efficiency and quality, while reducing downtime. If cash flow is what’s stopping you from moving forward with automation, we encourage you to explore our Commercial Equipment Financing Program.
