ServiceNow has announced an integration with Uber for business that allows workers to book rides via the Uber platform directly through ServiceNow Workplace Safety Management app.

Using the ServiceNow Workplace Safety Management app, offered in the ServiceNow Safe Workplace suite, the Uber for Business solution provides a “Book Uber” feature so employees can easily coordinate their Uber ride to and from the workplace via their mobile device. 

ServiceNow launched the Safe Workplace Suite two months ago which includes apps for contact tracing, workplace safety management, employee readiness feedback and employee health screening.

More than 600 organisations have downloaded the apps including Uber, Coca Cola European Partners, State of North Carolina, BankUnited, and AmeriGas. 

David Oakley, Vice President and Managing Director ANZ, ServiceNow, says “Every process has been tested during the pandemic and people are looking to new, practical ways of working – including the commute.

“ServiceNow and Uber for Business have partnered to solve one of the biggest problems Aussie businesses will face in the recovery – helping employees commute safely, to and from work. Employees will get the same easy to use, mobile experience they’ve grown to love as an Uber customer, with added digital workflows from ServiceNow, to ensure the health and safety of both riders and drivers.”

Georgia Foster, GM, Uber for Business Australia and New Zealand, said the new integration extends the services the ride hailing service offers businesses. 

“Uber for Business supports thousands of Australian businesses, and the recent extension of the Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exemption to rideshare will allow even more businesses and government agencies to unlock the benefits of ridesharing — from greater reliability and GPS tracking, to lower costs and the ability to redeploy that travel spend more effectively,” Foster said.
