Abstract

This case study presents and discusses the user's perception on the usefulness and ease of
use of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system of a selected organization. It is
expected that the design feature of the system could contribute to the usage of the system
by users (managers and executives) in performing their job task in their daily routine.
Extensive literature review on the technology acceptance have been made.
The objectives of this study are twofold. First, the study ranks the importance of the
design feature placed by the respondents based on selected variables and characteristics
of the system. Second, ERP system were correlated to the user's prior familiarity with
the system. The study explores the association between these variables.
The first findings on design feature revealed that the respondents had ranked variables
such as content, system integration, mathematical accuracy, multi-level security,
password security, processing option capability in their respective order of importance in
term of usage. Visual attractiveness of the ERP system was not given high ranking by
the users.
On the question of "ease-of-use", the respondents had identified variables such as visual
attractiveness, real-time integration and on-line function to have major influence on their
perception of the system's capability in performing its task. In addition, the respondents
have also perceived that the system's integration, data sequencing capability,
programmed format checks, multi-level security and password security to influence them
in terms of the usefulness of the system,
In general, the respondents felt that they should be familiar with the system in order to
improve their perceptions on the usefulness and ease of use of the system.
