The travel services provider expects the platform to accelerate contracting and optimize its commercial relationships with the company’s thousands of travel partners.
FCTG-The Americas was looking for a solution that would allow it to effectively manage contract renewals and increase visibility across its North American operations. In addition, to continue to thrive in the quickly evolving and fast-growing global travel industry, the company needed a contract management platform that was easy to deploy across multiple departments and brands, while creating a single source of truth for all enterprise agreements.
The travel company will use the ICM platform for all contract types buy-side, sell-side, corporate and make use of the ICM Collaboration Portal app to enable secure communication with suppliers, customers and partners. And, to better manage this growing network, FCTG-The Americas will leverage key features of the platform such as pre-approved templates and automated alerts for expiries and renewals. The ICM platform fulfilled the needs of the travel group because of its demonstrated ease of use, track record with managing a high volume of third party contracts, and proven ability to integrate with existing enterprise CRM applications and eSignature functionality.
