- Employers visit our signup page to create a business account with Uber’s web portal
- From there, they link the payment method of choice and add employees to the account
- Once added, employees will automatically receive an email invitation to join their team or company Uber account
- Managers or administrations immediately have trip information at their fingertips, as well as other key metrics such as the number of trips and the total amount spent on travel weekly, monthly and annually
For Business Travelers

- From there, all users will be able to easily toggle between payment options, which means business travel is automatically expensed and personal trips stay personal

But it doesn’t stop there. We’re also launching a new partnership with Concur, the world’s leader in spend management solutions with over 20,000 business clients around the globe. This partnership will allow all 25 million Concur users to link their Uber and Concur accounts, allowing for effortless expensing. Once an employee opts in and links their accounts, Uber will automatically pass along expense-ready travel information, including an e-receipt. Uber, Concur and American Express are also proud to announce that later this year corporations will be able to “turn on” this effortless expensing across their entire organization.
