Uber Business Profiles
Many of Uber’s customers use Uber for both business trips & personal use.
Recently, the company unveiled a new system called Business Profiles, designed to help users keep better track of business-related Uber trips.
When it comes to filing taxes and organizing business expenses, it can be a time-consuming and inefficient process to track-down receipts and remember which Uber trips were business-related.
Uber Unveils Business Profiles — A Way of Separating Business Trips from Regular Trips
In Spring 2016, Uber introduced Business Profiles — removing uncertainties and inefficiencies associated with expense-tracking by integrating a simple feature into Uber’s existing app.
New Features available with Business Profiles:
When riders are prompted to select whether a ride is Business or Personal, they activate a variety of convenient features which ‘kick in’ when Business is selected:
- If a business-card is specified for fee-paying purposes, the correct card is always charged (your personal card will never be charged).
- Users receive a ‘work receipt’ in their email inbox (simplifying the process of organizing and finding business receipts down the line).
- Business Profiles lets users put together weekly (or monthly) travel tallies — ultimately saving time & energy by letting Uber organize comprehensive summaries of a passenger’s business travel history.
