What Are Business Services?
Business services are activities that help companies but do not produce a physical commodity, such as providing office supplies, cleaning and catering. These activities allow companies to focus on their core competencies and outsource labor that may not fall within their expertise or capability. Often, large firms rely on business service professionals to complete work that would be difficult or impossible for in-house employees to do. Examples of business services include software services that enhance features and upgrade the security for a company’s technological devices, such as computers and mobile phones. Other business services include maintenance and cleaning for offices and transportation.
These activities are essential to the success of a business, but they can be difficult to manage in-house. The need for these activities makes outsourcing to business services providers an attractive option for companies. In addition, the need for these services is increasing due to the impact of technology on the economy and globalization. The development of new communication technologies has made it possible to offer business services in many locations worldwide.
The types of business services depend on the needs of the company. For example, a company might need translation services to help it communicate with clients that speak different languages. Similarly, a firm might need technical support services to solve computer or network issues quickly so that its employees can stay productive. Lastly, some businesses need personal services to provide their employees with workout facilities, entertainment and day care.
