In the highly dynamic business services industry, current business models and market strategies no longer meet market needs and requirements and therefore need to be updated. The internet has helped to make the market more transparent, while online business has grown exponentially. Clients’ increased knowledge and experience has encouraged them to take on more work of their own and rely on their vendors for more specialised expertise. In a transparent market such as this one, profit margins are down and expenses will be consistently lower.
Boer & Croon plays a leading role in utilizing the opportunities provided by the internet and e-commerce. Adapting business models and cost structures is our core competence. We keep investing in our network of highly skilled managers who have what it takes to lead organisations undergoing change.

"It is the impact of the internet and IT, more than anything, that is transforming the business services industry. The sheer amount of information now available and the transparency this has created has radically changed consumer behaviour. Business models and structures need to be updated regularly, but I’m excited by – and enjoy being involved in – new opportunities more than anything."

"IT can make a real impact in the business services industry. For example, what are the possibilities of Big Data? It provides new ways of analysing the market. On the other hand, you’ve got risks related to security, privacy and data leaks. All in all, we operate in a complex environment where I feel right at home."
