FCm Travel Solutions has partnered with iJET International to deliver a travel risk management (TRM) program for its global network of corporate customers.

FCms new TRM solution utilises iJETs risk intelligence and global response hotline, in conjunction with FCms technology and operations, to provide clients with a comprehensive suite of TRM solutions.

FCms Senior Director of Global TRM, Charles Brossman said that this year FCm would be investing heavily in the development and roll-out of a prescriptive global TRM program with the expansion of FCm Secure.

Our clients understand that TRM is something that must be proactively adopted, no matter what industry they work in or the size of their company, Charles said. To be rolled out from the end of the second quarter 2014, the expanded FCm Secure program will enable customers to develop a risk management program that suits their specific needs.

FCm Secure is a triple-tiered program, offering free and paid options including:

- Secure Start: a no cost program for FCm customers that acts as a starting point for building a customers individual TRM program. It includes itinerary-based traveller tracking; a colour coded risk map dashboard (powered by iJET); GPS/mobile based traveller tracking; FCm global crisis communications process via email and SMS; subscription-based security alerts to travel managers (powered by iJET); and security alerts available to travellers via FCms portal.

- Secure Protect: is the combination of the base, no-cost Secure Start offering and additional paid features. Options include a communications feature giving client administrators the ability to send their own emails and SMS text messages to travellers from a traveller location report; trip briefing tied to itinerary and automated report distribution.

- Secure Outreach: a global response hotline available for clients that require crisis support above and beyond FCms regular after-hours emergency services. Eligible clients who purchase Secure Outreach have access to a hotline staffed 24/7 by iJETs global response operations.

The no cost Secure Start will be available for eligible FCm clients using FCms reporting tool ClientBank. Based on the ClientBank reporting platform FCm Secure will also integrate with other FCm traveller tools such as Portal and the FCm Mobile app.

Unlike other TRM programs on the market, Secure Start gives clients access to a range of free features that often come at a cost, including a custom version of iJETs globally leading risk alerts and GPS based traveller tracking, Charles said. In addition, by connecting FCms emergency travel services to iJETs global response hotline we can provide a more affordable yet effective solution for standardised crisis response with Secure Outreach. There are also key elements of FCm Secure that have been specially designed for the corporate travel market which havent been available at the price point that we will be offering these services at. Clients will benefit from faster and more comprehensive crisis communications, which means travellers receive critical information faster.

iJET CEO Bruce McIndoe, welcomed the new partnership and said iJET was excited about working with FCm to implement a unique global TRM platform for FCm customers.

iJET delivers a broad range of intelligence-driven operational risk management solutions to ensure multinational, regional and local organisations can operate globally with confidence. These solutions, when combined with FCms platforms will provide a leading and comprehensive TRM program for FCm and its customers, Bruce said. With support from iJET, FCm can provide customers with more automation, better travel risk intelligence and higher levels of response services. iJET is highly experienced in operational risk management with a global network of resources to provide up-to-the-moment intelligence on events worldwide 24/7/365 days, both of which are critical for safe and secure global travel.
