Business services are activities that benefit companies without supplying them with tangible products. Large firms rely on these service providers for production, marketing, safety and cost reasons, among others. Examples of business services include:
As a general term, business-to-business (B2B) service providers offer specialized support for companies’ operations and processes that help them reach new markets and customers. They may help to streamline workflow and improve productivity by eliminating duplication of effort, or they may be a valuable source of new technologies and expertise that are not available within the company.
Unlike products, which are stocked on shelves for sale, services must be delivered when demanded by a customer. This makes business-to-business (B2B) outsourcing a common way for companies to improve efficiency.
Many jobs in the business services industry require no more than a high school diploma or GED certificate. But some positions are much more specialized and demand a bachelor’s or graduate degree. Some jobs are even available remotely, allowing workers to work from home or other locations with an internet connection, says Jennifer Spinelli, founder and CEO of the home-buying firm Watson Buys.
When hiring a B2B provider, be sure to select one that has experience working with your industry and can handle any complexities that might arise. You will also want to ensure that the service providers you choose have the appropriate insurance coverage and are in compliance with any regulations or laws applicable to your business.
