Abstract

Small and Medium Industries (SMIs) serve as a dynamic and integral part of the Malaysian industrial development. In 2003. small medium industries recorded a growth of I 1.8 percent in value added and 8.2 percent in the manufacturing sector. The strategic use of Information and Communication technology within SMIs is seen as one of the key elements that ensure a significant difference in their success.

The results showed that 81.6 percent of the SMIs companies have used the computerised accounting systems.

The findings indicate that the most favoured modules among the respondents were the general ledger, account payable and receivable and sales and purchases. It is also found that all companies used the module of production planning and scheduling. The rest of the applications such as fixed assets management, inventory control, payroll and costing were moderately used.
