Software house CDL has launched a print consultancy service to help brokers manage the mass of paperwork issued to customers under FSA regulations.

According to CDL general manager Rick Slater, brokers could increase their capacity, free up man hours and gain greater efficiency from existing systems by paying closer attention to the printing process.

CDL claimed the service will also help to reduce the amount of incorrect correspondence being sent out by making it easier to check the accuracy of printed documents and trace back the source of the print if an error is identified.

Slater said: "Most operations add printers in an ad hoc rather than planned fashion. With the significant increase in documentation and disclosures caused by the new FSA regime, this is simply inadequate - especially for brokers with a number of affinities or product lines."
