Meru Mobility Tech has launched a new business mobility app in India which will cater to both individual travel and business commute needs, with dedicated features. The app includes a new feature called 'Meru Switch' that differentiates between work commute and personal commute. The new feature gives customers a choice for city commute and outstation travel, just like Ola and Uber offer different rides at variable charges for intra city and outstation commute. Meru has integrated its corporate travel solutions - MeruBiz in this new app as well. Corporate houses can book cabs for point to point travel, airport transfers, car rentals, outstation travel, and transportation for their employees without any added surge in pricing.
