Abstract

Access to ICT is a necessary prerequisite for SME to get business opportunities by connecting to networks both as part of the global market and as support to distributed internal business activities. Unfortunately, the process of migrating from traditional activities towards IT-supported activities is in fact slowed down by several practical issues which small organizations have to face in order for the process to be effective. In this paper we present the case study of a spreadsheet mediated collaboration system designed to enhance existing business activities, in the context of SMEs. We describe the field study carried out with real stakeholders, to evaluate usability of the proposed prototype, and analyze the experimental results
