Scotia Cabins supplies and installs luxurious BBQ cabins, garden studios and self-catering accommodation across Scotland. The business started trading in 2015.
The company found that a key barrier to growth was that many customers were unable to pay for their products outright. Providing a finance option therefore became increasingly necessary, but this came with its own frustrations. For example, the team found that many of the finance services on the market were neither easy to use, nor accessible to their potential customers.
That's when they contacted Duologi.
Caroline at Scotia Cabins: "Finding Duologi was like finding gold. We had been hunting about looking at finance companies online when I saw their name pop up. It annoyed us to have to refer customers to the traditional banks, where the only people gaining anything is the lender.
"We filled out a contact form, then spoke with the team before meeting up a couple of days later. Within a week, we were set up and raring to go.
"Our first cabin was bought with finance just 48 hours later! Despite only working with the fabulous team at Duologi for a couple of weeks, we are having more and more conversations with people about finance and opening up options for them. The process has been honest, straightforward, quick and simple - so we're excited to see how this grows.
