  • Enhancing visibility on Google

Tony Moretta, CEO, Digital Jersey, said: “We know that all businesses need to improve their digital skills, and so I’m really pleased that we are working with Visit Jersey to help our fantastic tourism sector take advantage of tech to improve its customer service, profitability and productivity.”

Claire Lyons, Interim CEO, Visit Jersey, added: “It’s really important that people enjoy a seamless experience when visiting our island, from the minute they start searching for their holiday, to booking online, to being here choosing their next activity. Keeping up with changes in technology can be a real challenge for our industry, so it’s great that we’re partnering with Digital Jersey to help tourism businesses digitally upskill and improve their online presence, so that they can create a stand-out profile and continue to attract visitors to our beautiful island.”
