“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, FCM’s Technology Lead for Asia. “In just a few clicks, FCM travellers with the SAM app will be able to get to their destination hassle-free. They do not have to waste time to hunt down a cab or wait in a long line at a taxi stand, and also have ease of mind that the driver will not be circling round the block, resulting in escalating costs and waste of time.”

There are more than 51,000 travellers from close to 1,900 national and multinational companies currently using SAM, and the app has an average of over 20,000 active users per month.

 “Ground transportation is an important aspect of every business trip, and many are familiar with Grab in Southeast Asia, so to be able to offer this value proposition to FCM clients through this partnership is significant for us,” said Bertrand Saillet, Managing Director of Asia, FCM Travel Solutions. “FCM is committed to providing a seamless end-to-end traveller experience, focused on meeting clients’ expectations by offering customised global solutions. To have Grab as our first ride-hailing partner in Asia, exemplifies the commitment to fulfill the confidence that our clients have in us.”
