FCM Travel Solutions, a global travel management company (TMC), has made it easier for clients to take advantage of Southeast-Asia’s most popular ride-sharing service Grab, with a new partnership. Through this collaboration, business travellers can book Grab rides via FCM’s Smart Assistant for Mobile (Sam) app across seven Southeast-Asian countries including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.
As Grab’s first partner to provide seamless and convenient on-demand ground transportation via a TMC’s travel savvy app, FCM will provide clients with additional ground transportation options as soon as they arrive at a destination, saving travellers time and getting them where they need to be in a safe, convenient and fast way.
“When a traveller arrives at a new destination, Sam will notify them about the traffic situation from their current location to their destination and ask if they would like to ‘request a ride’,” said Robert Ramos, technology lead for Asia at FCM.
FCM has more than 51,000 travellers from close to 1900 national and multinational companies currently using Sam, and the app has an average of over 20,000 active users per month.
