As a leading global digital consultancy for helping enterprises connect with customers and grow their business, Perficient sends hundreds of employees each week to assist customers in industries from automotive to healthcare.
The Perficient corporate travel department actively seeks to make its employees’ time on the road as easy and productive as possible. It also wants to give travel managers a simple way to track expenses and onboard new employees. With all that in mind, when the company sought an official rideshare partner, it immediately thought of Uber.
“Uber is synonymous with ridesharing and is our top choice based on their reputation for customer service, dedication to improvement, as well as ease of use,” says Mattie Yallaly, Perficient’s Corporate Travel and Expense Manager. “Rideshare ground transportation has proven to be a favorable option for Perficient colleagues.”
Employees see increased productivity on the road with Uber for Business
Employee adoption of Uber for Business has been strong. “Given how much time some of our employees spend on the road, Uber provides significant time savings and much less frustration,” says Yallaly. “This includes both while they are in transit and when they do their expense reports.”
Employees simply access their work profile through the Uber mobile app by toggling between their business and personal accounts. They can request and schedule rides in more than 70 countries around the world without worrying about language or currency barriers, and enjoy automatic e-receipt forwarding through integrations with leading expense providers.
The feedback has also been positive. “Our employees appreciate that they can focus on work safely while utilizing Uber, rather than trying to navigate streets of an unfamiliar city,” explains Yallaly. “This not only increases productivity but can also help to alleviate some travel stress.”
“I would 100% recommend Uber for Business. I totally encourage other companies to try it. The integration with leading expense providers saves a considerable amount of time spent on expense reports.Mattie Yallaly, Corporate Travel and Expense Manager, Perficient
