The assimilation of Supply chain management information systems (SCM-ISs) is a complex phenomenon extending over multiple stages such as intention, adoption, internal integration, and external integration, which are influenced by various technological, organizational, inter-organizational, and environmental factors. This study explores the differential effects of various factors on assimilation stages. This study uses meta-analysis technique to quantitatively synthesize prior research data to determine the differential effects of factors on assimilation stages. In total, 400 findings on 40 relationships involving 11 factors and four stages of SCM-IS assimilation were used to conduct 29 Z-tests to determine the differential effects of factors on stages. Our findings show that organizations will benefit from attention to different factors at different stages of the assimilation process in efforts to incorporate SCM-ISs into their strategies and operations. Findings of the study are useful to managers as they navigate the process of assimilating SCM-ISs in their operations.
