An insight on solution provided for RidemyRide

Introduction

This case study will provide an insight of how a perfect solution was provided by Apptha for RidemyRide.com which is an online bike renting system that helps bike enthusiasts to rent world class bikes from owners across the world.

Case Presentation

Matt Heywood, founder of RidemyRide.com, wanted to come up with a collaborative bike renting system which would make bike renting much easier than never before.  In simple words, a common look out place for bike owners who are ready to give their bikes for rent and qualified renters who would make use of them, was the key requirement of Matt for RidemyRide.com

Solution provided

Apptha was required to come out with a single piece solution to match all Matt’s needs. After a series of analysis, Apptha found that Airhotels 2.5, which is a Magento based script, was an apt fit to meet the requirements. Though the baseline was the same, customization was the key and various levels of refinement was needed as Airhotels 2.5 script was meant for sites which serve as a market place for finding room accommodations and adding rooms for rented service.

Idea

The core idea of the Airhotels 2.5 script was taken and the first step which Apptha took was to replace bikes in the place of hotels. Keeping in mind, the bike owners and renters, Apptha came up with a perfect architecture which would benefit both the parties.

Location based search for bike renters

A keyword based search system was given the first importance as it acts as the key medium for biker owners to get in touch with renters and vice-versa. Google maps were also incorporated so that each renter would get a very clear idea on the owner’s location.

Bike details

Proper detailing of bikes is a must for any owner or renter to make use of it. So, Apptha came up with relevant back-end options for adding pictures of bikes, descriptions and essential details like location, rental cost, specifications, model etc. A proper layout (with tabs) was designed to present these details in a clear manner.

Booking and renting

An organized date sheet for every bike along with features to display the available and booked dates was set up. Input fields for renters to enter the dates of renting and modes to make their payments online were also created. Moreover, the Email IDs of each bike owner were also provided, so that renters could communicate with the owners instantly.

Social plug-ins

Social networking sites like Facebook, twitter, Google+ were incorporated through plug-ins in order to encourage user interaction. Moreover, provisions for users to add reviews, comments, and ratings were also provided.

Outcome

Following the detailed suggestion list provided by Apptha team, Matt was able to customize Airhotels 2.5 script as per his requirements and thus RidemyRide came into reality.

How was Matt benefitted?

Matt was able to create a platform for bike renting through which a global community of off-road and on-road bike enthusiasts were created. Availability of location based bikes for rent and tools to manage bike rental income made RMR a beneficial site for both owners and renters.

Beginning from Australia, RidemyRide.com started widening its reach towards other global locations like Germany, Italy, U.S.A, Austria, Switzerland, South Africa, Namibia, Cameroon etc.

RidemyRide.com became a trustworthy and reliable source of information for bike owners and renters.
