Business Services

However advanced technology gets, there will always be a need for physical business to business providers.

For every e-commerce business there are technologically advanced warehousing and logistics providers, for every shared working space, there are a design and build company, cleaners, facilities managers, and corporate catering providers.

Complex and technologically advanced buildings management, fire monitoring and security systems require servicing, maintenance and emergency call out provision. Businesses providing specialised outsourced support in respect of recruitment, training, compliance, marketing, business development and quality assurance have all grown in significance as the business environment becomes more complex and the attractions of outsourcing become clearer.

There are businesses that will straddle the divide between IT services and Business Services and the more technology enabled a service provider is, the more valuable they are likely to be; however we are a long way from replacing people with technology and the business services sector remains a key focus for buyers and investors.
