With office locations throughout China, FCS has a significant presence in the country, therefore our decision to provide a version of our website in Chinese is a great example of FCS’ desire to continue developing and expanding our presence in the region.

As a hospitality market that continues to demonstrate impressive growth, China is serving as a center for FCS’ growing customer base, with an increasing number of regional hotels and resorts leveraging FCS solutions to enhance operations and guest satisfaction.

Predicted by some to become a US$100 billion industry over the next 10 years, China’s explosive hospitality growth will no doubt lead to a dramatic rise in hoteliers seeking solutions that assist them in effectively coping with higher guest numbers.

As a global leader in providing leading industry technology platforms, FCS is well positioned to capture this niche market in China and our localized website is the start of great things to come – with FCS’ commitment to streamlining communication and ensuring that support is readily available.
