Rapido has chosen Google Cloud and Searce to modernise its digital infrastructure and build a robust data platform to enable rapid access to riders. The app-based two-wheeler taxi provider also claimed that this collaboration will reduce time to market on new app features as well as enable demand forecasting across its growing business.  

Rapido claimed that Google Cloud MSP, Searce played an instrumental role in its deployment and helped the company integrate directions and distance calls with the Roads API to smooth out variations in GPS readings received from its partner riders. 

“Searce also helped Rapido deploy the Google Firebase mobile and web development platform to automate the mode configuration of its API keys and save considerable time versus maintaining a time-consuming manual process,” the company said in a statement.
