Uber Central launches in India; allows firms to manage transportation at a large scale
Uber Central is a dashboard that works within Uber for Business and runs on any tablet or browser and solves a common problem for businesses.
Ride-hailing service Uber launched enterprise-ready “Uber Central” in the country that lets organisations provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients or guests.
The customers do not need to have an Uber account, or even a smartphone, to take a ride with ‘Uber Central’. The service is built on top of the Uber for Business (U4B) platform that enables companies or teams to set up a corporate Uber account. With this platform, organisations using ‘Uber Central’ get access to the digital billing, reporting and management tools they need to efficiently manage their transportation operations.
“Our technology makes it possible to create specialized solutions that help our users have access to reliable transportation options at affordable prices. ‘Uber Central’ is a great example of such innovation,” said Arjun Nohwar, Head, Asia Pacific, Uber for Business, in a statement.
