‘Uber for Business’ now lets organizations set and enforce travel policies

By : |August 16, 2017 0

To give organizations a more efficient way to manage their business travel and improve employees’ experience, Uber has announced a new ‘Uber for Business,’ enabling new use cases like daily commute, late-night rides home from work, between-office transportation and much more.

When Uber for Business was introduced in India, the underlying mission was to give organizations a more efficient way to manage their business travel and improve employees’ experience. Uber soon realized that organizations needed much more than features like monthly billing and reporting. Whether it’s helping employees stay safe when they travel from work late at night, enhancing customer experience with pick-up and drop facilities, or seamless inter-office travel, organizations wanted Uber to solve some of their most pressing business challenges.

The new updates add to the customer experience as well as solve some of the organizations’ most pressing travel related challenges. “Companies can now configure and use our platform to manage transportation requirements for all, while reducing costs, increasing operational efficiency and improving compliance” said Arjun Nohwar, APAC Head – Uber for Business.

The Uber for Business dashboard has been redesigned from the ground up to feature a cleaner, more seamless experience. A streamlined account setup flow makes it easy to get riding with as few or as many travel programs as needed. Plus, access to Uber Central is easily controlled, enabling employees who interact with customers, guests, or recruits to call a ride for them on demand.

Companies can set rules for employees, customers, and clients around the type of car that they can use, how much they can spend, and the location from which a trip needs to begin or end. They can mix and match these rules in the way that works best for their company.

Businesses can provide customized levels of Uber access depending on each person’s needs. For example, you can give all of your employees Rs 500 (or more) for their daily commute, while giving recruiters special access to call rides for candidates. By segmenting the organization by team, level, or location, they can take transportation policies out of the back office and easily bring them to life.

New tools allow managers to set up automated programs for commuting, business travel, airport rides, and any other mobility need. For example, if employees are working late, they could use a comfortable ride home. Managers can set up a “late night ride” policy that only works for trips taken between work and home after 8 PM. The company can choose how much to fund per trip, and if employees need to take longer trips, it’s no problem, everything over the spend allowance will be charged to their payment method of choice.
