Following a review aimed at streamlining and improving its work-related ground transportation options (both domestic and international).
This review looked at such aspects as:
We are pleased to announce that UBER will become the preferred ground transportation provider for ACU, in circumstances where public transport is not practical.
UBER is a simple to use global transportation service that matches drivers and riders via its smartphone application.
UBER for Business offers all the features of the standard UBER transportation service, with work-related UBER trips being cashless, cardless and charged directly back to ACU.
Staff approved to use UBER for Business will be required to first setup a personal Uber account before they can be added to the system. To book an UBER for a work-related trip once active on ACU’s account, you simply tap on your Personal Profile and switch to your ACU Business Profile on your phone UBERApp. The cost of the trip is charged directly back to ACU and your trip receipt sent to your work email, so you won’t need to:
Your ACU Uber for Business account will be linked to your primary default code (entity-project code-source of funds) and this code will automatically be applied to each trip you make.
It is therefore very important that if you need to charge an alternative code that you know the correct account string (entity-project code-source of funds) for your trip, so the correct code is charged. The app requires you to select ‘yes’ or ‘no’ as to whether you are travelling on your primary default account string. Should you select ‘no’, you will be prompted to note the entity-project code-source of funds for the current trip, in the free text field on your Uber app.
Should you need to permanently change your default code please email email@example.com with your new default code string and reviewer.
Please bear in mind that staff using ACU’s Uber for Business need to:
Each staff member who has UBER for Business will need to provide a reviewer, this could be a manager or other nominated person to receive a weekly report directly from UBER detailing all the rides booked that week by the individual.
Please note that the reviewer may be required to:
Staff wishing to connect with UBER need to make a request for UBER for Business access via Service Central.
Staff wishing to book for themselves only would request the option UBER Travel. Staff nominated to be an UBER Central Booker would select this option. This will enable the Central Booker to book for themselves, other staff or non ACU staff and students.
For all other staff travellers incurring a ground transportation expense, the staff reimbursement process Staff Reimbursement Form will need to be undertaken to be reimbursed for the expense incurred.
Should you have any further queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact UBER administrator Ai Nguyen.
