Dear Clients,

As we kick off a New Year, we want to thank you for the ongoing opportunity to collaborate with you. Certainly we experienced a new intensity this past year in how we work together to accelerate your digital initiatives.

In our last letter, Working together to respond, rebound and reinvent through the phases of the pandemic, we shared how our teams around the world supported the critical operations of your business in the midst of unprecedented change. We have since shared numerous stories of our collaboration through the Respond. Rebound. Reinvent. section of our website.

While much has changed within your businesses, one thing remains certain: technology is core to how you create value for your customers and citizens.

As we look ahead this year, which includes marking CGI’s 45th anniversary, we’d like to share a few updates.

  • Launching CGI’s annual Voice of Our Clients interview process – Over the past 5 years we have interviewed 6,775 business and IT leaders, collecting more than 1 million data points on industry trends. These interviews result in a comprehensive knowledge-base of today’s top business and IT priorities to give you deep insights and benchmarking comparisons into the best practices of industry leaders. The interviews begin in February and we hope you can participate and share your perspectives. Later this year, we’ll provide the resulting analysis to help inform your investments and support the development and execution of your strategies.

  • Refreshing our brand identity – Today we launched a refreshed brand, which includes a new tagline, Insights you can act on. This represents our commitment and capabilities to serving as a trusted adviser to you and your teams. We are continuously evolving our services to provide the insights you need to inform your strategies, while co-creating and delivering innovative services and solutions to accelerate your goals and sustain your business outcomes. Our objective is to use this brand refresh as an opportunity to share more about the ways we can help you create value.

In all we do, we recognize that our story is about you and your successful journey. We welcome you to watch a video that launches our brand refresh and symbolizes our client collaboration.

On behalf of our 76,000 consultants, we thank you for the opportunity to support you and your customers.

Warm regards,

George D. Schindler
