Broker Forces Direct, a specialist in preferential schemes for British and US forces personnel, has signed up to broking platform CDL Classic.

Forces Direct's business was transferred to CDL Classic after the system previously used by the broker, PremierPlus, was wound down. CDL Classic provides brokers with EDI capability, automated BACS payment facilities and integrated point of sale documentation.

Forces Direct director David Degiorgio said: "Using CDL's platform gives us much greater flexibility in negotiating new schemes as it is the system used by most serious industry players".

He added : "Its reliability and the easy accessibility of data enables improved customer service, which is assisting us in working towards FSA compliance."
