FCm Singapore's Growth Spurs Office Expansion
August 30, 2013
FCm Travel Solutions Singapore has announced it will be moving into its second office location later this month. This follows on from the relocation mid last year to its current headquarters on Robinson Road. The new 1,950 square-foot office space will be located in the Vertex building, in Ubi. It will also include brand new in-house training facilities. “As part of our culture, we firmly believe every employee must have a ‘brightness of future’. This fosters the recognition and on-going training and development of each person FCm Travel Solutions brings on board,” Said FCm Singapore General Manager, Mark Ten.
The expansion is all part of the world leading travel management company’s strategic plans to further develop its presence in the Marine and Oil & Gas industries. Singapore is home to a thriving marine & offshore industry, and in recent years, the industry has seen an unprecedented boom, largely driven by the strong demand from the offshore industry. The sheer volume of bookings and the operational challenges faced by travel bookers in the Marine, Oil & Gas industries has turned travel management for these sectors into a highly specialised area of the travel industry.
"The itineraries for travellers flying into remote destinations are not only complex, but can be very last minute and companies need to be working with TMCs like FCm Singapore that know which airline services that have the best routings. Time is money for companies, and having travellers waiting in airports costs money," said Ten.
FCm’s travel experts have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the specific travel requirements of both industries and the challenges involved. This enables them to deliver expert advice promptly and efficiently with a variety of solutions for travel related issues such as, but not limited, to budgeting, obtaining optimal fares, visa and custom requirements, optimising routing and resolving logistics.
Ten added “the expansion to Ubi underscores FCm’s success in the Singapore market. We are a TMC that takes on a holistic approach to our corporate travel, with a focus on cost reduction for our clients. We think outside the square to provide businesses with better travel ideas to produce better savings”.
