CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) is pleased to announce that PostNord, the leading supplier of communications and logistics solutions to, from and within the Nordic region, has renewed its application outsourcing contract until May 2017. CGI will continue to provide comprehensive application development and management services for the core part of PostNord’s application portfolio, which includes SAP and other applications for internal and external users.
PostNord first outsourced its applications to CGI in 2010 with the objective of achieving continuous improvements while lowering costs and enhancing the quality of service delivery. CGI’s strong presence in the Nordics combined with its extensive global delivery capabilities and broad application management expertise were decisive factors behind PostNord’s decision to extend the outsourcing agreement.
“CGI has enhanced its delivery model, enabling high quality services at the right cost,” said Joss Delissen, CIO at PostNord. “With this model, PostNord benefits from more flexible delivery with high availability. We look forward to working together with CGI.”
“We are grateful for the ongoing confidence PostNord has placed in us as its strategic partner and for the opportunity to help drive the company’s growth through our application services,” said Björn Ivroth, senior vice-president, CGI, Sweden. “The company’s renewed confidence strengthens our position as a leading application services provider and partner.”
