    How SMEs Strive to Achieve Competitive Advantage with IT-Supported Business Processes: An Empirical Study
    (2008) Schubert, Petra; Leimstoll, Uwe [in: Proceedings of the 21st Bled eConference]
    Results from a longitudinal empirical study on the use of information technology (IT) in Swiss small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) form the basis of this paper. In the recent survey, 917 questionnaires were collected and analysed. Selected findings are presented in ten conclusions which were drawn from the analysis of the responses. We see that the degree of information integration is very high in Swiss SMEs. Surprisingly, secondary process areas are better integrated across the company than primary process areas. The electronic exchange of data is quite common in SMEs and is performed, in many cases, at an international level. Swiss SMEs see the customer-oriented processes as important for their future competitiveness. On the other hand, they lay great importance on a well-working accounting process and the effective access to a management information system. Most SMEs embrace IT as a way to improve their business.

    Business Software Integration: An Empirical Study in Swiss SMEs
    (2005) Schubert, Petra; Leimstoll, Uwe [in: Proceedings of the 18th Bled eConference, eIntegration in Action]
    The integration of information systems is a topic which has long been discussed in the literature. Due to technological development, the possibilities for integration have considerably improved in recent years. The following paper concentrates on the integration of business software in SMEs and presents empirical primary data of the current situation in Switzerland. The study aims to demonstrate what has been experienced in previous integration projects and what the demands upon future business software solutions will be. The findings show that, in some software modules, the intensity of use and the degree of integration is dependent on the size of the company.
