CGI wins SAP-Microsoft award for innovative solution 
CGI improves field worker productivity for ProRail through a unique
mobile solution 
ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 --  CGI
(NYSE: GIB)(TSX: GIB.A) and client ProRail, a Dutch railway network
operator, received the SAP-Microsoft Unite Partner Connection
Innovation Award on June 4, 2014, during the SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando
2014 conference. 
CGI developed a mobile application in collaboration with ProRail that
enables the company to manage maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO)
work in an easy, quick and affordable way. Users can upload their MRO
information, including requests and work completed, providing ProRail
with a transparent and real-time overview of MRO-related performance
and costs.  
The SaaS-based application is designed for use on the Windows 8
tablet. CGI is the first company worldwide using this type of
application to automate user processes. The technology combines cloud
technology from Microsoft and SAP as a back-office system onto a
mobile platform.  
Sake Algra, senior vice president for CGI in the Netherlands, noted:
"We are extremely proud of winning this award. Our collaboration with
ProRail has led to a truly innovative solution that is generating
significant benefits for ProRail. We put in place a solid, mobile
infrastructure that can be implemented by other companies that want
to better manage field activities."  
Henk Bothof, CIO, ProRail: "ProRail is honored that our collaboration
with CGI led to winning the SAP-Microsoft Unite Partner Connection
Innovation Award. We are pleased with the good relationship we have
with CGI and their contribution to a safe and reliable railway in the
Netherlands. We are confident that we will continue to develop other
innovative solutions together from which Dutch residents will
benefit." 
ProRail and CGI have been working together since 2005. CGI is helping
ProRail to operate a timely and safe railway based on its extensive
expertise with traffic control systems.
