A medical and travel security risk services company, and Uber for Business, the ground transport online hire provider, report a partnership.
Uber will be International SOS’ exclusive global ride-sharing partner, and shared Uber for Business and International SOS clients will be able to get extra duty of care features through the International SOS TravelTracker in the coming months.
Matt Bradley, Regional Security Director, International SOS and Control Risks, said: “Experience shows that many organisations lack a comprehensive approach to managing the Duty of Care associated with ground transportation. We are excited about working with Uber to better reflect ridesharing options in our travel advice and content.”
The firms call their partnership a first of its kind; they point to the reality that companies often have employees travelling in dozens, if not hundreds of cities. Yet there are gaps when it comes to travel, and companies lack insight as to where employees are between hotel stays and what ground transport they are using.
Max Crowley, Uber for Business Lead, said: “Uber for Business offers thousands of companies a standard ground transportation option across more than 400 cities around the world, with digital receipts that include trip information. Integrating our platform with International SOS TravelTracker is a great addition for our enterprise customers’ Duty of Care agendas no matter where business travel takes their employees.”
