On Nov. 1, Uber launched a new program in eight U.S. cities with CarAdvise, a vehicle repair and maintenance technology platform. CarAdvise is now the exclusive repair and maintenance platform partner for the recently launched Uber Pro beta program. The partnership is designed to make car care more cost-effective and convenient for the rideshare company’s 1 million driver partners.
With CarAdvise, Uber driver partners are able to schedule service, approve work and pay from their smartphones. They can also get access to discounts that average 25 percent off retail within the CarAdvise network, compare prices, be notified of maintenance recommendations and review their maintenance history.
CarAdvise reports that its technology is integrated with over 20,000 shops nationwide.
