FCM unveils new booking platform

FCM Travel Solutions is introducing a new online booking platform within FCM Connect called Seeqa.

The new tool will give travellers and bookers access to increased options and functionality, aggregating GDS and non-GDS content, as well as FCM’s own content, all within one access point.

Seeqa is built on the Amadeus cytric platform and integrates content such as FCM’s chatbot, SAM, and the SmartStay hotel programme.

“Bookers and travellers need an online tool which is agile and easy to use, but also gives them access to the widest choice of travel content whilst still integrating within a company’s travel programme to maximise cost savings”, says Marcus Eklund, Global General Manager, FCM Travel Solutions.

“As an end-to-end solution, Seeqa gives our clients optimised content and a full choice of booking options for all aspects of their business travel needs – mixing best public fares with negotiated rates and FCM proprietary content.

"Plus, Seeqa has the best search engine currently available in the market and superior features in terms of functionality”, adds Eklund.

The booking tool has over 900 settings that can be configured according to the corporate’s preferred suppliers, rates and travel policies.

Searches take into account a traveller’s personal booking history and users can ‘speed book’ recurring flights and hotels in less than 30 seconds.

Navigation is via a single interface, enabling users to plan, book and purchase air, hotel, car, rail and other ancillary services within company policy.
