Management Services Industry Posting Mixed Results

The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on LECG Corp & Accenture

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - Companies within the management services sector have posted mixed results in recent quarters. While certain segments of the industry are flourishing due to the current state of the economy, others are stumbling. Outsourcing remains a key revenue driver, whereas technical services have fallen on hard times due to lower demand for PCs. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Management Services Industry and provides research reports on LECG Corporation (NASDAQ: XPRT) and Accenture PLC (NYSE: ACN).

Outsourcing divisions have been on the upswing over the last year. Cost cutting has led to massive layoffs which have often resulted in some companies outsourcing outside of the US. Management services companies that provide outsourcing services are seeing increased demand and in turn increased revenues. Interestingly, the high unemployment level in the US has impacted wages paid to low-skilled outsourcing centers in some regions of the country, putting US outsourcing costs at par with that of India.
