Tele2 outsources billing output management to CGI 
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- CGI Group Inc.
(NYSE:GIB) (TSX:GIB.A), has been chosen to manage Tele2's entire
print and electronic invoice pre-processing operations. The five-year
agreement will drive processing efficiencies for Tele2 in six
countries across Europe, including Sweden. The deal, valued at
approximately 70 MSEK (approximately $11 million), also involves the
rebadging of Tele2 IT professionals to CGI. 
Tele2 and CGI have collaborated for many years in the area of
billing. Under this new agreement, Tele2 will outsource its entire
Billing Output Management department and then buy the function as a
service from CGI.  
"The solution that CGI is providing is flexible and frees up
resources that can focus on our own core business," said Anders
Candell, CIO of Tele2. "We chose CGI as our vendor because it has
great expertise, and we have a long, proven relationship with their
team." 
"CGI has a comprehensive suite of solutions and services for the
entire billing lifecycle," said Bjorn Ivroth, Senior Vice-President,
CGI in Sweden. "This deal builds on the long-term success of our
existing relationship. It is also with great pleasure that we welcome
new members from Tele2 who bring a great deal of domain knowledge and
expertise to our company."
