Main features
WebEx is an innovative tool which allows completely interactive product
demonstrations to be performed at the convenience of its audience. Using
this technology, CGI will be able to attend and demonstrate at credit
union board meetings around the nation to demonstrate their high-powered
on-line and in-house data processing systems.

More than just a tool for product demos, CGI plans to use this technology
in order to more effectively serve its clients. WebEx allows a technical
support service representative to effectively "take over" a
client's PC in order to get to the root of the problem - allowing
them to perform remote service calls 24 x 7.

Using WebEx, CGI can:

  • Demonstrate their system capabilities from any where at any time
  • Perform in-depth remote service calls
  • Perform pre- and post-conversion training at all branches simultaneously
    - without staff having to leave the credit union
  • Attend credit union board meetings at a moment's notice

"This technology is just what we've been looking for,"
says David C. Palmer, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Credit
Union Solutions and Services. "It provides us the opportunity to
offer more in-depth support, extensive on-site training, and demonstrate
new products to our clients and prospects."

WebEx will be on exhibit at the 2001 CGI Annual Customer Conference in
Las Vegas - September 23 - 26, 2001.
