Abstract

Previous research has examined the determinants resulting in the implementation of computerized accounting, mainly relying on the Generalized Linear Model (GLM), based on the conditional mean of dependent variables. The aim of this document is to analyze the implementation of computerized accounting systems with the quantile regression. Additionally, it attempts to study the mediating role of the perceived usefulness of computerized accounting in the implementation of computerized accounting systems as well as to discover the moderating role of environmental factors and organizational factors. The findings reveal that the effects of factors on the perceived usefulness of computerized accounting systems and on the implementation of these systems vary according to quantile levels. The perception of computerized accounting usefulness plays the mediating role in the implementation of computerized accounting systems. Only organizational factors, not environmental factors, moderate the relationship between the perceived usefulness of computerized accounting systems and the implementation of these systems.
