Manufacturing

Driving global competitiveness and profitability

Economic uncertainty, globalisation, volatile demand, increased customer centricity and greater government oversight are creating new and intense pressures for today’s manufacturers. To compete and win, manufacturers must reduce costs, introduce more diverse products, shorten product lifecycles and increase service levels, all with fewer resources.

CGI’s manufacturing IT services and solutions provide the strategies, technologies and processes manufacturers need to transform their operations to become industry leaders. We help manufacturers more efficiently expand into new geographies, design and launch new products, streamline and optimise their supply chains, and excel in critical operational areas such as transport management, data management, forecasting, production and fulfillment.

From individual projects that target specific transformation programs to full IT outsourcing services CGI’s manufacturing IT expertise and best-fit global delivery model allow clients to increase their innovation, competitiveness and profits.
