When a major company first approached FCM Australia, it was looking for travel management strategies to reduce its costs, particularly in domestic air travel.
At the end of their first year with FCM, the client's total cost of change was 3.9 per cent of their domestic spend. By improving their travel policy and booking patterns, and by accessing FCM's multi- source platforms to secure better fares, the client was able to reap savings that far exceeded the year-on-year cost of change.
Through enhanced travel management, FCM achieved savings equivalent to 12 per cent of the client's domestic spend, relating solely to the client's reduction in the use of full class fares. Further savings in other areas of the client's travel activity were also realised.
