Re: Is it possible to get a count of Users who have been linked their Concur App with Uber in an org

What is the associated cost for Uber4Business? And is it worthwhile? I also sat with someone at Fusion to discuss Uber. We have the problem with several users of not switching their profiles and we are constantly having to have our users make personal payments to their corporate card accounts. It is very time consuming.

Re: Is it possible to get a count of Users who have been linked their Concur App with Uber in an org

Hi @JenniferStrong - had the exact same problem you described - people rolling up to accounts on Monday morning because they forget to switch their profile to personal and their boozy night out went on the corporate card!  I was at Fusion and learned that the week before, the U4B App had been modified and integrated with Concur.  You can have prompts whenever someone orders in their business profile asking them to confirm it is for business.  Since moving to the new U4B platform our instances of profile misuse immediately reduced to nil.  There is still an issue with Uber Eats and profile usage but they are working on a similar prompting solution.

 

Kind regards

Re: Is it possible to get a count of Users who have been linked their Concur App with Uber in an org

Hi @RichardG

Uber does frequently contact about U4B. I really like the idea of the extra confirmation for a business trip, is there anything else you have found really helpful? Do you know if U4B receipts have location information on them? Currently, if you signed up for e-receipts and connect Uber, it only lists the total for our employees and I'm wondering if that is fixed when signing up for U4B. 

Thanks as always,

Hi @JessicaL - yes that is one report I love from U4B ( sad really).  As an admin you get a monthly report that you can apply a pivot table to show most used cities and monthly spend x city.  I'm sure the more clever admins will find more data options they can utilize to help drive decision making within their organization.

Hope this helps!

Kind regards

Hi @JessicaL - one note of caution - my "accidental misuse" of Uber Eats by employees has increased because at the moment the apps are linked and the safety prompts are not currently in place like they are for U4B.  I'm working hard to get this changed quick!

OK, thank you for adding this. This is an area of concern for my company :-(

Hi @JessicaL - just edited my second response to you - you will have control on personal Uber trips not going on the Corporate Credit Card but you will see who cannot cook dinner to save themselves - for now at least.  Build an audit rule in Concur to force staff to declare any Uber Eats misuse and require them to attach a receipt showing they have repaid the company.  I can help you with that.

Kind regards
