Global fare finding system
 
Our global fare finding capabilities give our travel consultants access to the lowest prices and widest selection of airline seat inventory. FCM Global Fares is the name of our unique international ticketing solution. It is a multi global distribution system (GDS), webbased reservation solution that allows partners to access fares and availability from around our network.
 
The system links our reservation systems to one central web platform, allowing the option to search, book and request ticketing from over 30+ countries. This often results in lower fares, better availability or more flexible fare rules. 
 
 
SYSO: Reducing yield
 
Once you reserve your flight in our reservation portal, SYSO’s 30 algorithms detect fare fluctuations for your ticket until the date it is issued. As the price of your ticket decreases, SYSO automatically makes the reservation according to the new fare and the signal given by your dedicated Business Travel Expert (BTE).
 
Before creating your ticket, your BTE alerts you to the price reduction and analyses with you the possible modifications to the sale conditions that may occur.
 
In 2012, SYSO generated savings of over 10% in more than 34% of international trips.
