TREVOSE, Pa., July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS, the world's leading medical and travel security risk services company, and Uber for Business, the global leader in ground transport solutions, announced a first-of-its-kind partnership today to enhance visibility and Duty of Care for global enterprise companies.
Uber will be International SOS' exclusive global ridesharing partner, and shared Uber for Business and International SOS clients will be able to get enhanced Duty of Care features through the International SOS TravelTracker in the coming months.
"Experience shows that many organizations lack a comprehensive approach to managing the Duty of Care associated with ground transportation," said Matt Bradley, Regional Security Director, International SOS and Control Risks. "We are excited about working with Uber to better reflect ridesharing options in our travel advice and content."
The partnership between Uber for Business and International SOS focuses on the reality that companies often have employees simultaneously traveling in dozens, if not hundreds of cities around the globe. Yet there are gaps when it comes to travel, and companies lack insight as to where employees are between hotel stays and what ground transportation options they are using.
"Uber for Business offers thousands of companies a standard ground transportation option across more than 400 cities around the world, with digital receipts that include trip information," said Max Crowley, Uber for Business Lead. "Integrating our platform with International SOS TravelTracker is a great addition for our enterprise customers' Duty of Care agendas no matter where business travel takes their employees."
