    ANDOVER, MA, Oct. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - CGI Group, Inc. (TSX: GIB.A;
NYSE:   GIB), a leading provider of information technology and business process
services, today announced the signing of contracts with two insurers in the
Midwest and Southern U.S. Under the first agreement, CGI will provide a
25-year software license for the policy and claims processing components of
the INSideOUT(R) Suite, and a software maintenance agreement. CGI will be
providing the second new client with a hosted solution of the INSideOUT Policy
and Claims solution for five years.
    After reviewing multiple solutions in the property and casualty market
place, as well as considering the development of their own solution, both
insurers chose CGI's INSideOUT software suite because of its superior
functionality, technical platform, and .NET direction.
    The structure of the INSideOUT suite gives each company significant
control over their long-term strategic direction. CGI provides IT staff, data
center management, and a single source for their property and casualty
business requirements. The .NET technical direction of INSideOUT fits the
strategic direction of these clients, and improves speed to market for the new
products that these companies will enter into the property and casualty
market.
    "With over 4,000 CGI professionals serving the insurance sector, CGI is a
proven and dedicated expert," said Paul Raymond, Senior Vice-President,
responsible for CGI's Insurance Services Unit in the US. "We look forward to
evolving our solutions and services with the insurance industry, and see these
contracts as an opportunity to continue to expand our global presence in the
insurance sector."
