An American technology company based in San Francisco, California, Uber has had unstoppable growth from the tea it was first launched and has come a long way with the company operating in 633 cities across the globe.
Uber-for-Business debuted in 2014 with 50,000 companies signing up in the 1st year. As of 2017, 65,000 companies reportedly have enrolled.
The new feature allows managers of different companies to easily create programs that limit things according to the company’s needs like the type of car used, the specific amount of money riders can expense and what time of day Uber can be used. These rules come under the custom programs that the manager or HR sets and is applicable to the client travel programs, employee perks, general travel transport expense programs, etc. The dashboard helps the HR manage all the rides and also the HR can customise the Uber for Business account by determining the number of employees who can use the account.
If somehow the employee or client’s trip may go beyond the available credit, they’ll have to add their own payment method so that they can complete the journey. This system is an effective method that makes sure of both user convenience and the concerns of expense compliance teams while making sure that both the parties are benefitted at the end of the day. Also, neither do the manager nor the employees have to worry about out of policy rides.
Overall, it looks like Uber is here to stay and is targeting business as main market for future. The new features are great and will definitely please the users. This new redesign is pitched for all companies.
