The continued rapid expansion of big box retailers combined with the steep growth of eCommerce merchants, has created an increasingly untenable environment for locally owned small businesses. Multi-national brands such as Amazon, Google and Expedia as well as niche providers such as AirBnB and Open Table are providing stiff competition while extracting high fees. In response, DigitalTown provides a fresh approach to local economic development – one that equips municipalities and small businesses with the means to compete and win locally.
Our Smart City platform consolidates the functionality of popular sites like Google, Amazon, Yelp, TripAdvisor and Expedia into a single, user-friendly mobile and web experience that makes it easy for visitors to connect with local merchants, restaurants and lodging providers.
