Emma and I have a wide variety of apps on our iPads, from reading ones to energy supplier’s ones to games and catch up T.V. ones.
Apps have become part of the day to day life of any contemporary technology user so I was not surprised when Bidvine approached me about their professional services bidding app. It only makes sense to me that in a world where we access entertainment, banking, T.V. programs and so much more via an app, to be now able to find professional services by the same means.
So, what is Bidvine?
Bidvine is a service which offers easy access to professional services, from domestic cleaning to interior painting to lessons of any kind (piano, photography, personal training).
After the easy sign up step and choosing the service you are interested in, Bidvine sends your request to professionals in the area and within 48-72 hours quotes would arrive into your inbox, from up to 5 local providers.
Since I live in Northern Ireland, I chose to test photography services through the app, with the option of the professional travelling to us.
The process is simple and intuitive and I was done within minutes:
Unfortunately, since the app focuses on the greater London area, we didn’t get a lot of offers so I wasn’t able to compare prices with what is already available when it comes to portrait photography in my area but I lived the app simply because it is easy to access, easy to navigate and provided you live in the area it aims at, probably easy to access services you are in need of.
I’d recommend it to any busy employees who don’t have the time to phone around or score the newspapers for local professionals. I love the bidding system which ensures you get a competitive offer. And all in all, the concept, I find it quite revolutionary and my only regret is that it does not cover Northern Ireland for now, as I would much prefer it to other means of finding professionals for required services within the home and more.

This is a great idea. We need something similar here!
This sounds brilliant – I’d like something like that in our area x
