Business Services

Business services are activities that benefit companies without supplying them with physical products. They include marketing, production, safety, cost and convenience functions that large firms rely on to keep up with work demands. The industry encompasses a substantial portion of the commercial world, and many different types of business service exist.

A business-to-business shipping service, for example, might include warehousing goods, customs clearance and labeling, light assembly, and marking prices, all of which help companies meet their supply chain needs. The industry also includes value-added services, such as sorting bulk goods into customized lots, and coordinating shipping, transportation, and other logistics processes.

Companies that provide business-to-business services typically offer them as a bundle to save customers the time and expense of finding, negotiating with and contracting with individual providers. In addition to reducing the risk of supplier failure, bundling services helps businesses improve their productivity by simplifying their IT infrastructure. It also helps companies keep their costs down, since purchasing and managing multiple services separately can be expensive.

Creating a business that sells business services can be challenging because it requires a different leadership style than product-focused companies. Instead of concentrating on the performance of individual departments, service leaders need to focus on how their efforts contribute to the overall success of the organization. They must be willing to exert strong leadership to prevent revenue-generating line managers from overruling shared service models during times of strategic distress.

In order to compete effectively with companies that specialize in selling business services, a service company must be able to show its customers how it adds value. It must also be able to differentiate itself from competitors that emphasize price and quality. To do so, successful business-to-business services companies often focus on four distinct areas: design, delivery, knowledge and customer relationships.
