Empower your travelers with real-time guidance

Shep

FCM’s partnership with Shep helps enforce your policy while keeping travelers safe and informed.

Shep – an award-winning travel data, communication and digital adoption platform (DAP) – helps enterprises better manage travel behavior.

Acting as a browser extension, Shep delivers bite-sized, actionable guidance directly into the booking flow across thousands of sites, centralizing policy, information and guidance into a single, consumable format. This allows travel managers to create trigger-driven notifications or access external, 3rd party data (duty of care, sustainability) via integrated APIs that pop up to guide employees to safe, policy-compliant booking behavior.

With COVID-19 still creating barriers in the world of travel, Shep is providing companies with the means to deliver the latest health and safety messages to their business travelers about their company’s travel restrictions across more than 1,000 different booking sites, from Concur to Airbnb, Expedia, Delta, and more.

“Previous to Coronavirus, it was all about cost efficiency, ROI, preferred vendors...now what's important is {getting} the message to the travelers at the time that they're making their travel booking. When FCM proposed Shep, I thought this is it, this is the answer for us.”

Yukari Catherine Tortorich VP for global travel services at Discovery Inc.
