Ola launches corporate travel offering

Ridesharing player Ola has officially announced the launch of a new travel solution to support Australian businesses as they return to the workplace.

Ola Corporate offers business customers the flexibility and ease of booking an Ola as and when required for corporate travel, as well as the ability to pay from their company’s centralised account.

Ola Corporate clients will operate the service through a new, personalised 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 a Corporate trip in their Ola app.

The fares are paid automatically through the company’s Ola Corporate balance, centralised credit card or other payment methods and can be viewed and downloaded at any time from the dashboard.

Clients will also have access to a specialised account management support team at Ola.

Ola Corporate will include the raft of safety features currently available via the ridesharing company’s stock-standard offering. such as the ‘Guardian’ technology (for some cities), ‘Start Code’, 24/7 customer support and the in-app emergency button.

Simon Smith, managing director for Ola across Australia and New Zealand, said: “The launch of Ola Corporate demonstrates our ability to grow and diversify our offering in Australia.

“We are excited to work with businesses across the country to help their employees travel easily and safely and continue to meet changing mobility needs of all types of users, particularly now, as Australians navigate their return to the office.”

“The new service will build on our exciting success in the region over the past few years, through our continued focus on providing quality rideshare experiences and a fairer ride for both drivers and riders.”

Ola Corporate is available to businesses across Australia and New Zealand.
