FCm LAUNCHES GLOBAL CONSULTING SERVICES
September 5, 2013
Global travel management provider FCm Travel Solutions is launching a range of consulting services to help companies develop, manage and execute high performing corporate travel programs.
Called ‘FCm Consulting’, the global offering of services is being made available for companies looking to improve their travel performance through more effective supplier solutions and management, policy and compliance, expense management, change management, innovation and market intelligence.
Spearheading the launch is FCm’s Global Director of Multinational Account Management Felicity Burke, who brings to FCm almost 20 years experience in corporate travel and account management.
“Companies often want advice and guidance on very specific parts of their travel programs, this is where consultative services can really add value in a very tailored and cost effective way,” Felicity said.
“For firms that are partnered with multiple travel management companies or those who may be managing parts of their program in-house, FCm Consulting services can provide insight and strategic direction for businesses looking to take the next step in program development.
“Corporate travel management has become such a highly specialised area of the travel industry, companies these days need to be across what is considered ‘best practice’ or risk missing out on insider knowledge and data that can only be gleaned from travel providers with global resources and experience.
“Having access to global data, market intelligence, benchmarking capabilities and global suppliers as well as people that know how to deliver meaning from these tools, is giving companies the competitive advantage they need to achieve savings in the tough market conditions we now find ourselves in.
‘This is how FCm Consulting adds value to travel programs – with the right tools and the right people.”
FCm Consulting’s global advisory team includes senior corporate travel, procurement and technology professionals from around FCm’s network in Asia Pacific, Americas, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
FCm Consulting services draw on FCm’s global intelligence, customer insight, data and vast experience in managing best practice travel programs to help companies achieve short and long-term gains on their business travel.
“Consulting services bring an extra layer of support and direction for clients looking to enhance areas of their programs for more return on investment from their business travel,” Felicity said.
