A new-age ridesharing app, BidRide, makes daily commute hassle-free
BidRide is a Milwaukee based ridesharing app that is giving tough compete to Uber and Lyft. Logistibid, the owner of BidRide came to us for building their app from scratch.

BidRide is one of the rising ridesharing app in the Milwaukee region of US, owned by Logistibid. They had a series of transport and logistic businesses. However, they wanted to introduce a new concept to their carpool. And they challenged the surge price with the clean concept of bidding on fare before taking a ride.

Features they felt difficult to understand
- Client wanted to enable a bidding process each time a rider requests a ride and several drivers can respond to it. There will be bidding over the price and when both the parties agree. As clear as it may seem, developing the bidding module was a challenge on its own.
- Without proper real time communication the functioning of any ride application becomes a risk. Handling real time communication properly posed as the next big risk.
How we made it feasible for them to grow fast
- A chat like page was developed with proper use of MQTT and API calls to reflect the new incoming bids. The parties could also respond to bids, accept, reject or cancel them. API calls are made at certain intervals in the bid list page to keep the user auto-updated. There had to be proper checks and state handling kept to make sure the bidding process is top-notch.
- Innofied team developed a handshaking module for MQTT messages. This helped to check if MQTT messages were missed so that they could be redelivered. The handshaking module has really been of great use to stabilize the real time communication in the app.
We're extremely happy with what Innofied built and how long it took to complete. It has a lot of features that a business might need. The dashboard is simple to use, and the driver & passenger apps are really good.
