Abstract [en]

Critical situations are events in a sales process where customers are satisfied or dissatisfied. Sellers have to make decisions to provide a positive customer experience by making decisions to satisfy customers. Business Intelligence (BI) are digital tools, which support sellers’ decisions through performance measurements. In the case illustrated, the Resource-Event-Agency (REA) accounting model is used as a theoretical lens to show how BI is applied in critical situations. The focus is on purchase and follow-up in the car manufacturing company and REA looks at the database-, semantic- and structure orientation of BI and its interaction with people. A result of the study is an extension of the REA accounting model by introducing a cube model and BI as a practical lens. Another result shows how BI is used as a resource through the theoretical lens of the REA accounting model, which could help to use BI better strategically.

Abstract [en]

Digitalization and digital devices are on the rise, and as a result, many new products and services have been developed, which has led to greater interaction between people and technology. This thesis explores the interaction between people and technology by looking at the daily use of a business intelligence (BI) system in an automotive company’s sales process, where sellers use the system to analyze, report, and measure sales performance. The thesis is based on a single case study, and the data sources are in-depth interviews, observations, and archival data.

The theoretical perspective is grounded in the concept of sociomateriality and its notion of the imbrication of people and technology. Specifically, this work explores the research question ‘How does imbrication between people and technology develop during daily use of BI systems?’ The main theoretical finding is that three phases of imbrication can describe theses interactions, and these phases coincide with three situations in which people and technology must interact: automation of transactional work (Imbrication Phase 1), ‘informating’ of analytical work (Imbrication Phase 2), and transformation of work (Imbrication Phase 3). These three Imbrication Phases demonstrate the social dynamics at play when people interact with technology (specifically with BI). This contribution therefore extends the concept of imbrication within the field of sociomateriality. The primary empirical contribution is to illustrate the daily use and practice of BI within a sales process.
