LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sept. 26, 2013) - CGI (NYSE:GIB)(TSX:GIB.A) today announced that it has been selected by Shell as a lead Key Application Services (KAS) supplier. The new agreement will support Shell's Technical and Competitive IT (TaCIT) unit, which is responsible for providing innovative technical IT solutions and services, in support of the Upstream and Downstream business, including IT for Shell's Capital Projects.

"Shell is a leader in developing innovative solutions in the energy industry, and its TaCIT team is key in delivering a vast range of applications and technology capabilities to meet the needs of both its upstream and downstream businesses," said Tim Gregory, president of CGI's U.K. operations and executive sponsor of CGI's relationship with Shell. "In our role as a global Key Application Services supplier we will work with Shell TaCIT to enhance their industry position with the right solutions, enabling them to more effectively and efficiently deliver and operate. A significant benefit of the relationship is that together we have the competence and expertise to deliver new capabilities to advance Shell's business strategies."

The agreement will see CGI supporting TaCIT's critical business and technical applications in three key portfolios:

  • Subsurface and Wells

  • Projects and Technology CIO Services

CGI will leverage best practice productivity processes and tools to assist Shell TaCIT in maintaining top quartile performance from their information technology portfolio.
