FCM, the global travel management company, is inviting corporate travel managers to experience a preview of its new proprietary platform. Developed in response to a rapidly evolving business travel landscape, according to an announcement, the initiative reflects the company’s accelerated investment in next-generation technology to address the future requirements of a multinational customer base that stretches over 100 countries. Following a “successful and productive” testing phase, demos are now being offered to prospective clients. While the TMC is keeping specific details around the full capabilities of the new omni-channel platform under wraps, according to the announcement, those signing up to receive an advance demo “will get a realistic expectation of what’s to come when it debuts early next year.”

Marcus Eklund, managing director, said that as the world has changed, so have the challenges clients face. With geographically dispersed operations and a remote workforce the new norm, said the announcement, the new 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 travelers firmly in control, Over the past 24 months, 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, said the announcement, 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. The new FCM platform is already piloting with a growing number of clients, and it is expected that new customers will have access from early 2022.
