Uber opens up ride-hailing service for companies


Uber is expanding its solution for businesses with the launch of a service called Uber Central that enables companies to act as dispatch operators for their customers.

This shifts the focus away from standard business travel toward giving a company whatever it needs for the first and last mile, something that Uber has been dedicated to providing.

Built on top of Uber for Business, the feature lets companies now provide a customer service differentiator with an on-demand chauffeur service. Uber Central not only lets an administrator request rides for pick up and drop off, it includes the ability to manage billing and reporting for multiple people. This is meant for companies with client services in such areas as retirement homes, hotels and hostels, car dealerships, restaurants, airports, and bars.
