FCM, the travel management company, announced that parent company Flight Centre Travel Group, has fully acquired Shep, a Texas-based software company that provides a browser-extension based communication platform for multi-national corporations. This acquisition, according to the announcement, builds on last year’s initial investment in the firm and boosts FCM’s already robust technology offering. Daniel Senyard, co-founder and CEO of Shep, said, “FCM shares our passion for intelligent and ground-breaking technology that addresses pain points and vastly improves the user experience.” The Shep browser tool, according to the announcement, will enable FCM to customize content and enhance the user experience on third party websites and online booking tools that corporate customers use, either as part of the FCM platform’s flexible offering or when booking or searching outside of a company’s recommended booking tools. There are also tangible benefits for customers in the areas of health, safety, sustainability and policy guidance, which the Shep product will enable FCM to integrate into these systems when the products don’t offer them themselves. As a result, said the announcement, customers can expect greater consistency across the globe, while also delivering better control, duty of care, sustainability and communications benefits.
