Service - definition(s)

Service - According to ISO 9000, a service is a type of product. Service is always the result of an activity or interaction between a service supplier and a customer and can take many forms.

Service can be provided to support an organization's own products (e.g. warranty service or the serving of meals). Conversely, service can be provided for a product supplied by a customer (e.g. a repair service or a delivery service). Service can also involve the provision of an intangible thing to a customer (e.g. entertainment, transportation, or advice).
