Lancashire Business School (LBS) PhD student has received a prize for submitted research paper at EURO Working Group on Decision Support Systems (EWG-DSS) Award workshop.
In the EWG-DSS Liverpool 2012 Workshop, Gwendolin Geier presented a paper entitled “The Benefits of Enterprise Systems for SMEs”, a joint work with Yahaya Yusuf, Marion Schulze and Ahmed Musa (pictured below), that was selected an award-winning piece of research.
Gwendolin said: “My submitted paper was a summary of the literature review I’ve conducted about my research with the main focus on benefits and critical success factors relevant for enterprise systems and its individual components: enterprise resource planning, SCM, CRM and supplier relationship management.”
She added: “I was very surprised, excited and honoured to have won the award. I would have never expected that, but now I’m more confident concerning the work I produced and the way I presented it. I’d like to thank Marion Schulze, Yahaya Yusuf and Ahmed Musa for their support.”
LBS senior lecturer Marion Schulze said: “I’d like to congratulate Gwendolin for an outstanding conference presentation which was not only recognised by international researchers but also managed to scoop the top prize. This is a tremendous achievement not only for Gwendolin but for the Business School as well.”
The “EWG-DSS-Award” was launched in 2011 as a motivating research initiative for young researchers to submit and present their work in one of the EWG-DSS annual organised workshops and conference streams.
