Hi,
if your not sure what it is or didn't install it yourself I'd remove it. I did a search on the app and came back with this
http://www.bidswitch.com/

Looks like some kind of connection manager? As I said if you don't want it just remove it.

Looks like some kind of deployment software for Supply chain partners via e-commerce. I agree with kemical, if you didn't specifically download and install it yourself, you should get it off of your computer. You should also scan with your antivirus and a good anstipsyware such as the free MALWAREBYTES available from Malwarebytes.org. If you can't remove it via Windows programs and features, it's a good bet that good put in there via a spyware virus if you didn't intentionally install it yourself.

Cheers!
