Ola, India’s leading mobility platform and one of the world’s largest ride-hailing companies, has rolled out ‘Ola Corporate’ across Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The milestone development follows the success of the category in the Indian market, which has been adopted by some of India’s leading companies with millions of employees relying on it for business travel. Ola Corporate has over 10,000 corporate users in India, who have seen a reduction in travel expenses by up to 25%, due to the platform’s centralized billing system, which eliminates the need for paper-based reimbursement.
With the introduction of the service in international markets, Ola is widening the scale of its global offerings to provide business travelers with a cost-effective, flexible and easy-to-use solution for all their mobility needs. As companies prepare to physically return to the workplace, ‘Ola Corporate’ will deliver a superior and reliable mobility experience, reinforced by Ola’s market-leading safety and customer support features.
Ola Corporate is set to offer enterprise customers the simplicity and convenience of booking an Ola, by seamlessly facilitating payment from their company’s centralized account. This makes the entire process of applying for transport reimbursements redundant for corporate travelers and organisations, resulting in improved business productivity.
Anand Subramanian, Spokesperson at Ola, said “Ola Corporate brings the inherent benefits of Ola’s technology platform to simplify the mobility requirements of large corporates. Be it a point-to-point trip, traveling outstation, or renting a cab for multiple trips, Ola Corporate brings the flexibility of choosing from a variety of categories on the Ola app. The corporate dashboard allows for improved efficiency and productivity for businesses, taking away the hassle of scheduling pickups and cumbersome billing and payment processes. Millions of executives across 10,000+ businesses avail the benefits of Ola Corporate in India every day, changing the way India Inc travels. With enhanced safety protocols and custom-designed solutions, we are excited to extend ‘Ola Corporate’ to our international markets as well, and help businesses with a simple, effortless, and convenient mobility experience.”
Ola Corporate clients will operate the service through a new, personalized dashboard where they can add and manage employees. Employees then book their own rides as they would for personal journeys and simply tag the ride as an Ola Corporate trip. The fares are paid automatically through the company’s Ola Corporate balance and can be viewed and downloaded at any time from the dashboard. Clients will also have access to a specialized account management support team at Ola to ensure convenient and smooth operations.
With wait times of less than 5 minutes, trained drivers, and the highest standards of safety, Ola provides a quick, safe, and reliable mode of transportation for enterprise customers. The company will continue to drive its safety initiatives across the category which comprise industry-first and leading safety features such as Ola Guardian, pin to start, selfie authentication, in-app emergency button, and 24/7 customer support.
