More Info

The Digital Service Squad (DSS) is a free digital resource to help you grow your business by adopting and implementing digital tools and technologies. Now, thanks to renewed funding of the Digital Main Street Ontario Grants Program (OPG) by the Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade in partnership with TABIA and OBIAA, we are thrilled to offer this free resource to your business.
DSS members are trained specialists that go to brick-and-mortar small businesses, like yours, to help them adopt innovative technologies and embrace digital marketing. A DSS member can show you how to build a basic website or how to improve your existing online presence through tools such as Google Business Profile and social media. Squad members can also help you optimize your website for search, setup a POS solution, and create customer databases. In addition, Digital Service Squads provide advice and recommendations to streamline your fundamental business operations (including back office processes) and can help you find local digital vendors for potential projects.

I'm not very tech savvy, but with the help of the Digital Service Squad (DSS) I was able to create a modern Google website for our restaurant for free. It looks great on both phones and computers. Thanks DSS!
