As CoLo providers continue to evolve and find new ways of generating income, there is an increasing drive to expand the business model from a value added services perspective. Terms such as “hands on”, “helping hands” and “managed services” have been coined to reflect offers where CoLo’s are looking to provide a richer customer experience by taking on more responsibility for the work previously carried out by their customers.
