FCM launches next generation technology: FCM Connect

Media Releases 27 Sep 2017

A streamlined travel programme to provide a better and more efficient business travel experience has been launched by FCM Travel Solutions to ensure that travellers, bookers and managers have greater connectivity.

FCM Connect is an integrated global technology platform which gives clients access to multiple tools that deliver on their travel programme.

“We believe technology should move our customers forward, and the next generation release of our technology offering, FCM Connect, is designed to do just that,” said Marcus Eklund, Global Brand Leader, FCM Travel Solutions.

“We’re excited to launch FCM Connect to existing and new customers. Our improved solution has been designed for the modern Traveller, Booker and Programme Manager and addresses their desire to be more connected to the entire booking, travel and management journey. Being better connected helps travellers and bookers feel in control and gives our programme managers the visibility they need to elevate their travel programmes,” Mr Eklund said.

Andy Jack, general manager FCM Travel Solutions NZ says,

“we’re thrilled with the launch of FCM Connect. The new technology reflects our focus to redefine travel management and communicates to our existing and prospective customers that we are industry leaders.

It demonstrates our commitment to fostering further growth in our people, products and services, further strengthening our already powerful proposition in New Zealand.”

At the core of the solution is the FCM Connect HUB; a single-sign-on platform that gives customers one simple connection point to all of FCM’s leading technology tools including Analytics, Approve, Booking, Secure, Expense and Mobile. HUB is easily customisable for each company in both configuration of tools used and interface design.

“Through extensive customer consultation and product development, we’ve refined a world-class, end-to-end solution that ensures all of our customer’s travel needs are organised – from pre-trip approval to booking, to traveller tracking and reporting that provides complete visibility of spend,” Mr Eklund said.

FCM Connect was previewed to clients and industry earlier in the year at the London Business Travel Show and Global Business Travel Association Conference in Sydney, Australia.

FCM Connect is now available and will support organisations across a full range of travel programme deliverables including:

  • Global, regional or national fulfillment
  • Cost reduction strategies
  • Data compliance
  • Duty of care responsibilities
