Business services are activities that help companies, but do not always result in a physical product. They benefit large firms in particular for marketing, production, cost and safety reasons. The service industry accounts for a major portion of the commercial world and many different types of business services exist, including IT services, logistics services, accounting services, and human resources services.
These services can be provided by organizations that specialize in providing them or by individual businesses who offer them on a contract basis. Business service contracts may include services such as a transportation facility to get employees to and from work or a professional cleaning service that cleans the company’s headquarters each day.
A business service can also be an IT service that monitors a set of devices to deliver a specific function, such as a DNS Service or Collector Group. These IT services are often grouped together as a device-based Business Service.

A form of business services called a business-to-business service takes place between trade organizations. For example, a car manufacturing company performs B2B transactions with wholesalers for tires, rubber hoses and other components. This type of business-to-business service helps to reduce costs and improve productivity by outsourcing these specialized activities.
