New integration with Uber for Business gets employees safely moving again

I miss being in a car. I really miss having someplace to go! But I’m also glad that when it’s safe to go back to our offices, I’ll have the option of commuting with Uber for Business, right from my ServiceNow Safe Workplace suite.

We launched the ServiceNow Safe Workplace suite two months ago. It includes apps that help companies prepare for and facilitate a safe and effective return to their respective workplaces. We’ve included important functionality like contact tracing, workplace safety management, employee surveys, and health screenings, and we are adding new features every couple of weeks.

Our latest addition – Uber for Business – is included in our Workplace Safety Management app, which is one of the apps in the suite. With it, employees who have decided they’ve had enough of their home office, closet office, garage office, or kitchen table can easily coordinate their Uber ride to and from their workplace.

If you know me, you know I love our Now Platform® because it is one architecture, one data model, one platform. Uber for Business is another powerful platform that I’m happy to integrate with, because our strengths combined help solve one of the largest problems businesses face—helping their employees feel safer when commuting to and from work, as soon as it’s safe to reopen.

More than 600 customers have downloaded our Safe Workplace apps. Uber recently rolled out new features and policies to help protect the health and safety of both riders and drivers. As a result of this partnership, I’m certain that an exponentially larger number of employees in a variety of industries will be able to rely on an easy, safer, commute option, and their companies will be confident in a flexible and practical return-to-work solution.

I hope to become a power-user of this Uber for Business integration soon enough. Until then, if your workplace opens and you get to use it as a ServiceNow customer, let me know what you think
