Uber has announced that its Uber for Business service is now available to companies in all of the territories in which Uber operates – a total of 45 countries and more than 200 cities.

Following the launch of the service in the US and Canada in July, the move is aimed at increasing the number of small and mid-sized account customers it can attract in other parts of the world.

At its core, the Uber for Business model is pitched on simplicity – all employees need to do is order a car and a charge it to the company account. It includes a centralized billing system and dashboard to allow administrators to ensure that no employees overspend though, and it’s all kept within the allocated budget.

Of course, while Uber continues to push onwards in its bid to continually expand its horizons, it’s also still facing challenges in some parts of the world – just last week,  German courts in Berlin and Hamburg upheld a ban of its services, according to Reuters.
