When you bring in your fancy Tesla for a tune-up, do they send you home in another fancy Tesla?
“Tesla Motors . . . uses Uber at its Service Centers around the country to give customers a convenient and reliable ride while their vehicle is being serviced,” the Uber blog explained.
In doing that, Tesla helped pilot the new Uber for Business service that was announced publicly yesterday. Now, if your company signs up and adds you to their Uber account, you can take black car and taxi trips and bill them directly to the company credit card.
“While Uber can’t get you out of your work trip, we can make sure you arrive in style, without the hassle of expensing a ride.”
In turn, your manager will be able to view how many trips you’ve taken and how much money you’ve spent per week, month, and year.
Both companies also announced a partnership with Concur, a business expense management system. If you link your Concur account to your Uber or Airbnb, they will automatically generate expense reports. In other words, no more paper receipts and reimbursements. Huzzah!
