Retaining competitive advantage can be difficult

Companies are constantly seeing their profit margins squeezed and their products become increasingly commoditised. Consequently, SMEs are increasingly looking at ways to differentiate themselves, improve their margins, get closer to their customers and make their business more sustainable. Many SMEs are adopting services as part of their competitive strategy in order to increase value and unlock opportunities.
