Data that drives the digital innovation in The Visitor Economy
The Visitor Information and Experience Warehouse of Puerto Rico (“VIEWPR”) is a non-profit effort propelled by Foundation for Puerto Rico, that seeks to increase economic activity in our communities by helping businesses put their information online and share their information with travel platforms across the world. In addition, we provide digital presence workshops and tools to empower businesses to manage their information and interactions online.
Puerto Rico has many experiences to offer, but…
…many local businesses do not manage
their information online
VIEWPR gives individuals, communities and local businesses free access to the most updated information about points of interest (POI) and experiences in Puerto Rico to understand the travel offer in their geography and develop complementary products and services. We list, attractions, restaurants, tours, stories, accommodations, events and many other POI.
Local businesses can take ownership of their business information and provide new and authentic content on what there is to do in their communities. Once they contribute information in VIEWPR, we share it with travel platforms across the world, where travelers today are looking for it! Thus, increasing their online visibility and helping them save time they can invest in their own operations.
