Ola launches smart transportation solutions for Australian businesses

Ola, one of the world’s largest rideshare platforms, today announced it is launching ‘Ola Corporate’, a travel solution to support businesses as they return to the workplace.

The new corporate offering will provide businesses with a cost-effective, flexible and easy to use solution for all their mobility needs, inclusive of Ola’s market-leading safety and customer support features. 

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

With wait times of less than 5 minutes on average and high standards of safety and hygiene, Ola provides a quick, convenient, safe and reliable mode of transportation for business customers.

Centralised billing makes the entire process of applying for transport reimbursements redundant for corporate travellers and organisations resulting in improved business productivity.

What did a top official have to say about Ola Corporate?

Simon Smith, Managing Director for Ola 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.”

What makes Ola Corporate special?

Ola Corporate helps to reduce employee travel costs by up to 25%, through streamlined processes and end-to-end solutions. 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 to ensure convenient and smooth operations.

Ola Corporate will also include the raft of industry-leading safety features which Ola is known for, such as the Guardian technology (for some cities), Start Code, 24/7 customer support and the in-app emergency button.

Ola Corporate is available to businesses across Australia and New Zealand as of today. For more information, visit here.
