Impress Your Clients with Uber
Clients have been wined and dined before. Throwing down Niners vs Seahawks tickets might do the trick…I guess. *Yawn* However, throw Uber into the deal and you might start to get some real interest. Taking your clients, associates, or even boss out in an Uber can be a fun way to show you’re colleagues that you’re in the mix, and are up on the lastest trends. Show that you’re focused on maximizing your personal efficiency while not sacrificing your class or comfort. Here’s a recent email from a prominent, local, San Francisco attorney on his experience with Uber during work hours:
“The best thing about Uber is that it is reliable. When we need to get somewhere on time, Uber is something I can depend on, even on short notice. It is also easier to find than a taxi, faster than public transportation, and more comfortable than either of those options. It’s even better than driving myself, since I don’t need to look for parking.
When we’ve taken clients out and used Uber, clients are inevitably impressed with both the technology behind the Uber app, and the quality of the drivers and cars that Uber works with. Add to that a seamless payment experience and easy-to-use driver rating system, and you have a great, consumer-friendly product that we can be also relied upon as a business service.”
You simply use the app that makes sense for your transportation needs, and you become a James Bond in your co-workers’ and clients’ eyes. They watch you touch a button on your phone, watch the car approach on your phone, and arrive within minutes without ever having to actually put the phone to your ear. If that’s not James Bond style…what is!?! The drivers working with Uber will open the door for you and your guests and act professional and courteous. Presentation is key…so present yourself in Uber style.

Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
