Business-to-business is becoming an increasingly large component of Uber’s business.
Uber for Business, which manages corporate travel for enterprises by providing a single dashboard for all employee trips and expenses, has signed on more than 50,000 companies across 58 countries in just one year, including the likes of Tesla, Evernote, and Morgan Stanley.
At Dreamforce in San Francisco, Uber this week announced the global rollout of Business Profiles, a new feature which allows users to switch seamlessly between their personal consumer account and their corporate account when hailing a ride.
With a Business Profile selected, users can include notes about the trip, an email of which is automatically sent to the company’s corporate Uber account. This means that logging in and out of accounts is longer necessary. Manually expensing individual receipts is also a thing of the past.
Uber, which operates in more than 300 cities worldwide, is currently valued at $50 billion. The company has had mixed success in Canada but is not giving up.
