FCM launches next generation technology suite, FCM Connect

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

Aptly named FCM Connect, this integrated global technology platform which gives clients access to multiple tools that deliver on their travel program.

“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 Program 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 program managers the visibility they need to elevate their travel programs,” Eklund said.
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 customizable 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 organized – from pre-trip approval to booking, to traveler tracking and reporting that provides complete visibility of spend,” 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 organizations across a full range of travel program deliverables including:

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