Ola launches new mobility service for corporate clients

By / 11 months ago / News / No Comments

Indian ride-hailing firm is expanding further with the launch of an new corporate mobility solution in Australia, New Zealand and London.

Ola Corporate has been designed to provide convenient and cost-effective business travel, reducing employee travel expenses by up to 25%

Developed to provide a safe, cost-effective travel solution for businesses, the new corporate solution brings business-focused benefits including centralised billing to support cashless transactions and customised ride policies.

It’s also said to reduce employee travel expenses by up to 25% when compared to alternative options as there are no wait time or platform fees.

The new solution arrives as more people return to work post-lockdown in line with the ongoing easing of government restrictions; Ola says demand for its ride-hailing services has doubled in the last four weeks.

Ola Corporate clients can access the service through a new, personalised dashboard where they can add and manage employees. Employees then book their own rides on their app as they would for personal journeys and simply tag the ride as a Corporate ride. The fares are paid automatically through the company’s Ola Corporate account and can be viewed and downloaded at any time from the dashboard. Clients will also have access to a specialised account management support team at Ola.

Marc Rozendal, Ola’s UK managing director, commented: “The new service will build on the success we have had, with our focus on quality, safety and reliability remaining at the core of everything we do. We look forward to working with businesses across the UK to meet their mobility needs and helping people to get back to work safely.”
