ServiceNow and Uber team up to provide workers safer commute to work

ServiceNow, a renowned California-based software company, has reportedly announced that it has teamed up with the employee travel management arm of ride-hailing firm, Uber; Uber for Business, to provide employees with a safer means of transport to work as soon as the lockdowns are lifted.

Under the partnership, Uber’s ride-hailing services would be integrated into the ServiceNow Workplace Safety Management app to provide workers the ability to book rides to commute to and from their respective workplaces.

Through the Workplace Safety Management app, which is offered under the Safe Workplace suite of ServiceNow, Uber for Business feature offers a new “Book Uber” option that allows employees to easily coordinate their respective Uber rides when commuting to work through their smartphones.

Employees can also schedule their arrival times, manage health screenings, and reserve workspaces through the smartphone app. The novel integration follows Uber’s latest launch of new policies and features to effectively help protect the overall health as well as safety of both the drivers and riders.

Within just two months after the first release of the Safe Workplace suite, including contact tracing apps, employee readiness feedback, workplace safety management, as well as employee health screening, over 600 enterprises have downloaded these apps. The organizations include Coca Cola European Partners, Uber, the State of North Carolina, AmeriGas, and BankUnited,.
