FCM-owner Flight Centre Travel Group has fully acquired Shep, a Texas-based software company that provides a browser-extension based communication platform for multi-national corporations.
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.
An evolving business landscape has been the catalyst for global travel management company FCM to transform its brand identity and take a fresh approach to developing a new tech platform.
Fifty per cent of organisations have begun travelling again, but with stipulations, according to the third phase of a combined multinational survey by the global travel management company.
FCM Travel Solutions has made a minority investment in Shep, the browser extension technology that assists companies with better management of travel purchased outside of their corporate travel policies.
Flight Centre Travel Group has expanded its global leadership team to increase its focus on corporate and leisure travel growth. Chris Galanty has been promoted to the newly created role of global chief executive, responsible for Flight Centre’s corporate divisions.
