"Effectively resolved planning, scheduling and routing problem of our business"

What do you like best?

We started using Google Ridesharing to solve the problem of our technicians scheduling and routing issue. It effectively resolve our business problem and meets business requirements (will provide details in later section). What did I like? here are few:

1. Google Ridesharing provides robust and powerful API capability.

2., flexibility to develop your own custom routing/scheduling application using it's core functionality and capability.

3. nearly 99% accuracy turn-by-turn fastest/shortest route to destinations and 99% accuracy on prediction

4. Easy and seamless integration with Google map

5. now seamless integration with google assistant

What do you dislike?

1. Initial setup and integration with our own mobile application was difficult. We had several technical discussion with Google team to integrate Google Ridesharing functionality in our applications.

2. Reporting is also little strange. Instead of running last 30 days, it shows month by month. For that we needed to bring the data back to our environment and have our custom reporting on that data. Thanks to available APIs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It depends on your personal usage need and/or business need. As I mentioned earlier, as a technical person I found this product effective to solve our business problem. Also mentioned, it will be little difficult to develop your own custom application based on core functionalities and capabilities of Google Ridesharing will be little challenge but worth to give a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had business problem to help our technicians to arrive consumers address on time using effective up to date route with turn by turn driving guidance. We also have problem of allowing our consumer to change/cancel any appointment up to 45 mins before the schedule time needed fast replanning/rescheduling and re-routing the technician's schedule and route. Google ridesharing effectively helped to solve the problem.

NB: We didn't use Google Ridesharing native app. We just used it's capabilities and APIs

"Improve navigation and ETAs for drivers and passengers"

What do you like best?

Google Maps Platform ridesharing solution can help drivers to get customers location more precisely, quickly and reduce the uncertainty around estimated time of arrival (ETA) for passengers.

What do you dislike?

I really have not found any complains against using Google Ridesharing so far. Using this, the ETA's have improved significantly and other things more or less remained same. So, nothing to complain about for now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using our app through the Google Maps Platform ridesharing solution, we are able to keep our drivers engaged and improve driver and passenger experience through more accurate locations and ETAs

What GIS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Google Rideshare!"

What do you like best?

I love the API feature, which you can secure btw, and shows the geocoding along with maps elevation features to give you an up-to-date snapshot of what your rideshare holders look like. It's a live feature that has improved over the years, from it's start just a couple of years ago.

What do you dislike?

It's not entirely accurate, as it resets at the end of the month and I do wish it would do a cross-comparison to the last so you can see the live change. As of now, having to go back to a last months cycle is a bit annoying.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Real time snapshots of traffic control and usability. We've noticed a rapid change from how traffic and elevations used to be compared to now and it's gotten a lot better!

What do you like best?

It shows the best routes for the rides and hence saving time & money both. Along with this it also helps to track & schedule deliveries.

What do you dislike?

It's too large hence takes too much memory. This is the only disadvantage for me.

"Google Ridesharing"

What do you like best?

I like that this app is specific to carpooling. I love how affordable it is! It is much less expensive than the alternatives such as Lyft and Uber.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how you have to plan your ride so far in advance. I would much rather have the ability to plan it with less notice as my schedule can change from hour to hour. It also only works in rush hour and common routes. For example, if you want a ride from LA to Pasadena, it's not going to work. It can also be very difficult to find your driver with the location that is given to you. Luckily, they have in-app chat to help assist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Ridesharing makes carpooling more accessible to people living in highly populated areas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Ridesharing has made carpooling accessible and the pricing is unbeatable.

"Great Ridesharing API on Google Cloud Platform"

What do you like best?

Google Cloud Platform provides the maximum flexibility for you to be able to design your own custom Ridesharing API to fit your application's needs. All the metrics regarding the API can be tracked right through the browser on GCP (Google Cloud Platform).

What do you dislike?

It's a little pricy, but again, if it's for a commercial use, then the organization can get special offers/prices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a little pricy, but definitely worth the money if the aim is to build a great software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Rich Data provider"

What do you like best?

Can be integrated directly using the sdk provided with minimum effort involved.

Its like plug and play.

What do you dislike?

The API is a bit complex for the beginners and needs lot of reading to get into how to achieve a particular target. More examples should be there, covering basic use cases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Basics are there,

to make best use of the api, more examples and demo projects need to be provided along.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the architecture problems related to heavy api dependancy in case of maps

"Google Rideshare Services Review"

What do you like best?

Google rideshare is a super convenient tool in helping you find the best route to your destination.

It will match you with drivers that are already heading along similar routes during the morning as well as evening rush hours times.

What do you dislike?

The thing I dislike the most about rideshare is that they're not always accurate. Google Rideshare will also sometimes accidentally match you with a driver who isn't on your route to your destination.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have recently used Google Rideshare to help transport new fashion articles from our new line to our sampler clients. Using Google Rideshare is very useful to myself and my business when there are no cabs available.

"Simple, quick, and best way to manage deliveries and providing data! "

It's slightly pricey and sometimes to take time to set it up while you're in a big rush.
