Cheshire Datasystems Limited (CDL) is one of the leading providers of computerised sales and administration systems to insurance intermediaries of all types and particularly those operating in a telesales environment. CDL was launched in 1976 and after installing bespoke software into various Brother offices throughout Europe, our energies and resources were directed to and totally devoted to the world of insurance. Being a privately-owned company without any affiliation to any insurer or financial institution allows CDL to be a dynamic organisation, clearly focused on the needs of our clients in a rapidly evolving industry. Innovation has been the cornerstone of CDL's success with the introduction of several major technological solutions that are not readily available from our competitors. CDL continues to expand and we now employ over 505 staff within our offices in Stockport, many of whom are recruited directly from the insurance industry. We do not employ commissioned sales people but instead secure most of our new business through recommendations.
