Uber, Airbnb team up with Concur to cater to business travelers

Uber says businesses can now create centralized accounts for use by all their employees

In an effort to attract corporate accounts, Uber and Airbnb each announced plans to make it easier for businesses to use the ride-sharing and apartment-sharing services.

The two San Francisco sharing-economy start-ups this week announced that they would integrate their services with software from Concur, which helps companies manage employee travel.

Meanwhile, Airbnb -- which says nearly 10% of its customers already travel for business -- launched a new section on its website that lists properties most suitable for business travelers.
