Welcome Onboard. Now you can travel smoothly in just 14 days.
We can provide overarching service costs and the lowest-cost price options, and we can reduce complexity with value-adding technology (management of process, infrastructure, and people). But, we understand the thought of change can be daunting. Especially after the year we’ve all had.
But what if we told you that this is the perfect time to reassess your travel management? Or that we can onboard your business in just two weeks?
Honestly, the process is a lot simpler than you think. Here’s how we’ll get you up, up and away in 14 days (or less).
The key to success
Each and every client who comes onboard, not matter how big or small, will be assigned a dedicated customer success manager (CSM) to help get their programme up and running.
Concerned about the time it’ll take to gather the necessary information and set up new online systems? Fear not. Alongside a team of travel experts, your CSM will take control of all the admin, information gathering, training, change management and support so you can get on with what’s important: the success of your business.
And if your team hasn’t travelled much in the last 18 months, your CSM will review and update your travel and duty of care policies – as well as looking at cost management measures. All without eating into your time or affecting your day-to-day responsibilities.
Even better? Your CSM will be with you for the first year, designing and nurturing the perfect programme to meet your business’s unique needs. After this, they’ll be on hand to perform an annual review for a small fee.
The sharpest tools in the box
Even before the pandemic, advancements in technology were transforming the travel industry. COVID-19 (and the need to monitor the situation at home and abroad) has fuelled innovation and the right tools are now essential when it comes to seamless, stress-free and oh so simple travel management.
FCM’s market-leading tech includes:
- An online booking tool which is easily customised to your needs
- A mobile app for itinerary management and instant comms while out on the road
- A global, interactive travel map with up-to-the-minute information
- Duty-of-care capabilities like traveller tracking and safety dashboards
- Streamlined approvals and monthly reporting

From stay-home notices (SHNs) and vaccinated travel lanes (VTLs) to testing (whether ART or PCR) and vaccine requirements, not to mention travel restrictions and red tape, there’s lots to navigate at the moment.
If only you had an expert in your corner. FCM will give you a designated point-of-contact for any and all queries – not to mention access to a full team of experts up to speed on all the restrictions you’ll face both at home and overseas.
Did we mention that there’s never been a better time to consider the services of a TMC? And not only because of the personal, hands-on service mentioned above, but because of the savings we can deliver.
Our global footprint and impressive buying power means we’ll be able to identify savings; deliver enviable travel perks (like early check-in and late check-out); and negotiate unbeatable rates on your behalf.
