The literature about information systems adoption generally, and specifically the use of EOI within supply chains. indicates that there are significant savings to be made, primarily by reductions in inventory costs. The Iiterature surrounding the Efficient Consumer Response (ECR) movement within the retail supply chain also claims that there are significant savings to be made and that these savings will be shared by partners within the supply chain and be passed on to consumers. This is a two stage study of a local case organisation operating within a duopoly industry environment. The research was conductad during the period of 1999 to 2005.
