The largest Taxi aggregator world-wide Uber isn't ready to sit on the couch and enjoy their success in the market. Rather the innovative tech company (that's Uber likes to call itself) introduced an all new feature in their Uber app that's aimed at event organizers and guest for a hassle free event scheduling.
Dubbed the UberEVENTS, the new feature will help the organizers of the event to send event passes via Uber to their selected guest, so that they can ply to and fro the venue via Uber. This feature is presently available for select riders and Uber Business users in New York.
"When planning a company happy hour, client appreciation dinner, or even upcoming nuptials, there is a lot that goes into ensuring that your event goes off without a hitch-including how your guests can safely get to and from without any fuss.
We want to make the experience of planning transportation logistics as seamless as ordering a ride at the touch of button. Starting today we are excited to offer select riders and Uber for Business users beta access to our latest feature UberEVENTS," quoated Uber in their official blog.
Using the UberEVENTS is indeed quite easy and can be done in just a few steps. First the organizer need to set up an event on the Uber website and fill in requisite details. Once done, the event organizer will receive a mail from Uber with the requisite no of passes ordered for. Then, the organizer can send across the pass individually to respective guest.
The experience for the guest is pretty hassle free too. On the day of the event, the guest will have to open the Uber app as usual and then head on to the Promotions section. Here, one has to input the respective codes they received via mail from the organizers and place a request for a ride. Rest is as usual.
The best part about the UberEVENTS feature is that the organizer can provide custom made passes where they can limit the trip charge, no of trips per pass/code etc.
