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.
