Abstract

This study reports on an empirical investigation of determinants of success for small professional organizations (physicians, accountants, lawyers, etc.). The purpose of this study is to identify factors that could affect the successful acquisition and use of computer systems in small professional organizations. Results indicate that 80.5% of the sample firms were correctly classified as successful or less-than-successful using variables such as estimated savings as a result of the computer system, total assets, net income, the number of vendors considered before the system was purchased, the number of computer system employees, post installation time by vendors, and the cost of maintenance.
