SINGAPORE, 9 November 2021: Global travel management company
FCM is inviting corporate travel managers to experience a preview of its new
proprietary platform.

The latest initiative reflects the company’s accelerated
investment in next-generation technology to address the future requirements of
a multi-national customer base that stretches over 100 countries. Following a
successful and productive testing phase, demos are now being offered to
prospective clients. 

“As the world has changed, so have the challenges our
clients face too. With geographically dispersed operations and a remote
workforce the new norm, our travel management solution has been purposely
designed for the digitally savvy workforce, offering a powerful suite of
digital tools and dashboards that puts travel managers, arrangers, and
travellers firmly in control,” said 
FCM’s managing director Marcus Eklund, “We are excited to offer the
global business travel community a first-look of our proprietary platform while
introducing a few of its many innovative features.”

Over the last two years, FCM worked with a representative
cross-section of clients from different sectors and varying sizes and budgets,
garnering feedback to help shape the new travel platform. This has resulted in
a slick user experience delivering global consistency where needed while
offering a superior level of choice and flexibility that is built around their
individual needs.  

“While it was important that we identified and addressed
current pain points, it was even more critical that we future-proofed our
offerings by anticipating and delivering the most adaptable business travel
technology in the market. It has truly been a collaborative effort,” added
Eklund. 

FCM is keeping specific details around the full capabilities
of the new omnichannel platform under wraps; however, those signing up to
receive an advance demo will get a realistic expectation of what’s to come when
it debuts early next year. 

At the platform’s heart is an informative landing page
displaying an instant overview of key information such as upcoming trips
alongside live updates, notifications and changes to bookings. The user
interface has also been purposely designed to ease seamless navigation between
an array of impressive features and tools.

As an open platform, FCM’s signature ‘plug and play’
flexibility remains front and centre. Clients will have the ability to choose
from a number of integrations to deliver on their multi-national and local
needs – like booking tool selection, expense suppliers and duty of care
providers. At the same time, the introduction of a single approval flow joins
multiple online booking tools, offline bookings and even multiple markets into
a consistent and simplified approvals experience.

The new FCM
platform is already piloting with a growing number of global clients, and it is
expected that new customers will have access from early 2022. Those interested
