Certify Teams With Uber to Help Business Travelers

Integration Between the Two Companies' Apps Will Give Business Riders More Reason to Choose Uber While They're on the Road

PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) -  Leading cloud-based travel and entertainment expense management software provider Certify announces today a partnership with Uber that will give business travelers a way to automatically track Uber expenses within the Certify Mobile app. Recently, Uber launched Business Profiles, a feature which allows riders to separate their personal and business expenses. Uber's integration with Certify makes Business Profiles even more powerful, since the Uber app sends the trip receipt to the customer's Certify account once the ride completes. From there, Certify automatically integrates the Uber receipt into the customer's online expense report, along with all the other receipts captured and uploaded using the Certify app.

Uber has become the preferred ground transportation choice for business travelers. The ride-sharing service eclipsed car rentals as a percent of total rides nationwide for the first time, in Q4 of 2015, according to the Certify SpendSmart™ Report on business travel spending. Uber also ranked the highest among users in customer satisfaction, compared with Lyft, car rentals and taxis.

"With nearly one million​ people activating business profiles, business travel has become one of Uber's fastest-growing segments. Providing the ability for our riders to automatically submit their receipts for expense reimbursement is a logistical step forward in making trips more seamless," said Max Crowley, Lead of Uber for Business. "Thanks to our partnerships with top expense management companies, we can ensure that business travelers never have to pay out of pocket for business trips on Uber again." 

"Uber has won the hearts and wallets of consumers and businesspeople alike, due to its real-time, customer-centric and competitively priced service," says Robert Neveu, CEO, Certify. "On the same note, Certify is the simplest and most accurate tool for expense report automation. Companies love our mobile app because it takes all of the stress and time out of creating, approving, reconciling and submitting expenses for reimbursement. We're proud to be working with Uber to make expense reporting even easier for business travelers around the world."
