Whether serving public sector organisations, owner managed businesses, private individuals or listed companies with overseas operations, our goal is to help our clients achieve their ambitions. Business services are delivered to customers, supporting their needs, sometimes through the support for a business process or directly supporting a service or product delivered to end customers. A business service may be supported by one or more IT service(s), and may consist almost entirely of IT services especially where the IT service is directly customer-facing. Examples include online banking and online shopping.

Adam Smith ‘s book The Wealth of Nations, published in Great Britain in 1776, distinguished between the outputs of what he termed “productive” and “unproductive” labor. The former, he stated, produced goods that could be stored after production and subsequently exchanged for money or other items of value. The latter, however useful or necessary, created services that perished at the time of production and therefore did not contribute to wealth. Building on this theme, French economist Jean-Baptiste Say argued that production and consumption were inseparable in services, coining the term “immaterial products” to describe them.
