The aim of this paper is to identify the factors that influence the assimilation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems in the post-implementation stage. Building on Organizational Information Processing Theory (OIPT) and Absorptive Capacity (AC), the authors propose an integrated model, which examines the relationship among organizational fit, absorptive capacity, environmental uncertainty, and ERP assimilation. Based on the survey data from 98 firms that have implemented ERP, most of the proposed hypotheses were supported, showing that initial fit, potential AC, realized AC, and heterogeneity jointly affect ERP assimilation.
