SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - July 31, 2014) - CGI (TSX:GIB.A) (NYSE:GIB) has been selected by Cameco, one of the world's largest uranium producers, to provide application management services for the company's SAP environment, including day-to-day software support as well as services for software enhancements and preventative maintenance.

The services will be delivered locally through CGI's SAP Center of Excellence (CoE) in Saskatchewan, which was opened in 2012 to establish a strong base of expertise for Saskatchewan companies. In addition, CGI opened its second Saskatchewan office in Saskatoon last February to support local companies like Cameco. Both the CoE and Saskatoon offices will add many high-tech jobs, driving economic growth and career opportunities for highly skilled IT professionals.

CGI uses SAP technology to build, implement and manage enterprise systems for companies across the globe. As a global SAP® services partner and with one of the largest SAP practices in the industry, CGI will work with Cameco to expand its systems capacity, improve service levels and responsiveness, and reduce risks using the latest SAP technology.

"We selected CGI based on its SAP expertise and experience, as well as its flexible partnership approach," said Mark Leach, vice president of business technology services for Cameco. "In addition, CGI offers not only close proximity, but proven transition and service delivery capabilities."

"We're excited about the opportunity to drive innovation and business value for Cameco through our SAP application management services," said Shawn Derby, senior vice president of CGI's Western Business Unit. "Our SAP experts will work closely with Cameco staff to identify, implement and run the best SAP solutions for improving the company's overall business performance."
