  • Factors Affecting Usage of Mobile Money Services and Their Impact on
           Financial Inclusion: Case of Lusaka Province

    • Abstract: This article presents a study of factors affecting the usage of mobile money services (MMS). Thirty-three User technology adoption variables relating to factors that affect MMS usage were identified, and Factor analysis was used to extract the key factors using principal component analysis. With set cut-off values, eight factors emerged with values of Communalities (>0.5), Eigenvalues (>1), Percent of Cumulative Variance Explained (>60 per cent), and Factor Loadings (>0.4) with a total variance of 75.179 %. Multiple regression was conducted to see if the independent variables predicted the level of usage of MMS. The validity of the items used in this study was established by using confirmatory factor analysis. Results showed that the adoption of mobile money service is influenced by Perceived ease of use, Perceived usefulness, Perceived cost, and Perceived network quality. The perceived cost was found to have a negative influence on financial service adoption.

  • The Impact of Computerized Accounting Information Systems Risks on the
           Quality of Accounting Information

    • Abstract: This study aimed to know the impact of computerized accounting information systems risks on the quality of accounting information and to achieve the study objectives, 60 questionnaires were distributed to workers at the administrative levels in Jordanian commercial banks. The number of rounded questionnaires valid for statistical analysis reached 40, i.e. 67% of the distributed questionnaires. The results of the study showed the following: Accounting information systems are exposed to several risks that threaten their security. The study revealed that most of the risks are the result of internal reasons and not external causes, and they arise due to unintended errors or negligence. The risks of computerized accounting information systems affect the quality of accounting information. Based on the results of the hypothesis test, the three null hypotheses were rejected for the study. In light of the results of the study, the researcher recommended a set of recommendations: Holding training courses to raise the practical and scientific qualification in accounting and technology that keeps pace with technological developments in general for employees assigned to operate accounting information systems. Determine the persons authorized to enter the accounting information system and set a password for them.

  • The Impact of Value, Employees Performance and the Integration of
           Healthcare Services on Loyalty toward Community Pharmacies in Saudi
           Arabia: A Structural Model

    • Abstract: With the focus of the scholars and literature on the importance of customer value, the emphasis has been paid to this concept in a great number of retailing specialties, but it was neglected in the case of community pharmacies. This research focuses on the service value, trust and employee performance as factors explaining loyalty to pharmacies and adds the verification of the impact of the integration of primary healthcare services as a way to enhance or sustain the level of loyalty to the initial pharmacy or switching intentions toward other pharmacies which integrate this kind of service. Thus, an original conceptual model is proposed and tested. A survey was distributed electronically via a social media application (WhatsApp) to participants based on the convenience sampling technique. 492 respondents submitted the survey. Results show that perceived value, employee performance and trust influence initial loyalty. In addition, the integration of Primary Healthcare services sustains this loyalty, but initial loyalty does not prevent switching intentions in case other pharmacies integrate primary healthcare services.

  • The Covid-19 Pandemic and the Eurozone: A Reconnaissance of E.U. Financial
           Assistance to Counteract the Coronavirus’s Perfect Storm

    • Abstract: As economic scholars and researchers are well aware the Covid-19 pandemic is severely affecting all the European Countries both from a health and economic-productive point of view, and it is not expected to be over before the spring of 2022. In order to counter the effects of this pandemic on the societies and economies of the 27 Member Countries of the EU, the European Institutions (in particular the ECB and the European Commission) have prepared an extensive series of financial assistance instruments, some of which have been developed from scratch while others that already exist have been adequately strengthened. The paper will preliminarily ascertain if Covid-19 was really a “perfect storm”, as such absolutely unpredictable, or if it was the consequence of unpreparedness and underestimation. Then the ordinary and extraordinary instruments of financial assistance which the European Institutions have made or will soon make available to the member Countries of the Eurozone to counteract the severe fall in GDP as well as the increase in the unemployment rate, will be investigated. Finally, some conclusions on the topic at stake will be drawn.

  • The Impact of COVID-19 on the Efficiency of Packing Lines in
           Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Sites in Egypt

    • Abstract: Corona Virus Disease COVID-19 has significantly impacted the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector. Production Efficiency in pharmaceutical facilities is questionable to withstand the drastic conditions under which the drug manufacturing supply chains are. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a primary indicator of efficiency. The aim of this review is to demonstrate a comprehensive overview on the factors impacting OEE and how they are affected by COVID-19.This review was done on a multinational pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Egypt. In order to better understand the business model under study and have clearer vision on the impact of COVID-19 on each aspect of it, the business anatomy model ‘9 Elements’ by Elsafty (2018) was used. The time horizon of this study is 2020 to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the pharmaceutical manufacturing performance.The pandemic led to increase the pharmaceutical products demand which subsequently put a pressure on supply planners to alter the production scheduling. COVID-19 unraveled the weaknesses in the supply chains and the overreliance on materials suppliers of one source. This had a direct impact on the supply of materials and spare parts. Production efficiency has also been impacted by the health conditions of workers and operators might been community infected. Lack of high-skilled workers leads to decrease in the productivity due to the inability to manage and solve problems the right way and independently. Materials and finished goods quality are questionable in such situation. Introduction of counterfeit and falsified materials is a predictable side effect.It is concluded that OEE is affected by COVID-19 that moderates the inputs of OEE; availability, performance and quality. The pandemic has an impact (positive or negative) on the top losses of a machine efficiency.

  • Predicting the Risk of Insolvency in Small Enterprises: Critical Analysis
           of the Predictive Model Associated with the New Italian Code of Business
           Crisis

    • Abstract: Numerous studies have been conducted to verify whether, and under what conditions, Altman's Z-Score model can also be applied to unlisted, non-US companies. The response of numerous studies confirms the substantial validity of this algorithm. However, in Italy, the legislator, in launching the new Business Crisis Code in 2019, in adherence to an important European recommendation, did not adopt the aforementioned model but approved a different one. In order to find a justification for this choice, the present work intends to test the effectiveness of the warning indices that will be adopted in Italy by comparing them with the Altman predictive model in the Z'' Score version. To this end, the two models were applied to the balance sheets of 789 Italian firms that went bankrupt in the period 2016-2018 and, at the same time, to a control sample, equal in number and composition, of non-bankrupt firms.The results of this analysis produced two distinct findings. The Italian method proved to be less effective in predicting a crisis than the Z'' score. but more effective in determining whether a firm is truly healthy. This evidence is useful to confirm once again the effectiveness of the Z'' Score in a non-American context but also, and above all, to provide suggestions to the Italian legislator so that it can refine the predictive model currently in force.

  • Modelling the Acceptance and Use of Electronic Medical Records from
           Patients’ Point of View: Evidence from Saudi Arabia

    • Abstract: Background: The employment of IT in healthcare reflects a need to meet the increasing demands of patients and to upgrade the quality and productivity of the provided services. However, the literature demonstrates many failures in systems and IT technology implementation. One of the reasons behind these failures is users’ resistance. The ministry of health (MOH) in Saudi Arabia (SA) has prioritized the embracing of new technologies that could improve the healthcare services, such as electronic medical record (EMR) systems. On the other hand, studies that address the acceptance and use of hospital information systems (HIS) and EMRs in SA from patients’ standpoint are scarce. The aim of this study was to explore patients’ acceptance of an EMR system by proposing a model adapted from the technology acceptance model (TAM) and the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT).Methods: An online questionnaire was used where questions were based on the proposed model constructs (facilitating conditions (FC), perceived ease of use (PEOU), perceived usefulness (PU), attitude (ATT), and behavioral intention (BI)). 116 patients responded to the questionnaire. The model was then tested to identify the factors that affect patients’ intention to use the online services of the EMR.Results: The analysis of the research model suggested that (1) FCs influenced the degree of system’s PEOU. (2) PEOU affected the EMR’s PU. (3) PU affected patients’ ATT toward using the EMR. (4) A positive effect is found between ATT and BI to use EMR.Conclusion: The study has implications for healthcare IT acceptance research and efforts in SA, as to date patients’ perspectives have received little attention. The research also makes a theoretical contribution as it validated the proposed model.

  • Repurchase Intention among Mobile Shoppers with Mediating Effect of
           Satisfaction on Mobile Shopping

    • Abstract: Good continuation of mobile shoppers’ intention could ensure sustainability in mobile shopping, thus the study of consumer behavior including service quality, perceived value, trust and satisfaction is essential in order to understand their needs. The question is whether the mobile shopping in Malaysia has provided sufficient mobile websites or apps facilities to gain the repurchase intention of mobile shoppers. However, there are several issues arise such as bad reviews or comments, lack of communication and fake online sellers that may affect mobile shoppers’ behaviour. This research aims to examine the relationship between service quality (SQ), perceived value (PV) and trust (TR) mediated by mobile shoppers’ satisfaction (CS) with repurchase intention (RI). 427 usable questionnaires were collected from the mobile shoppers around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. The data was analyzed using SPSS and Structural Equation Modelling in SmartPLS. The results suggested that there is a significant relationship between SQ, PV and TR on CS. Besides, CS mediates the relationship between SQ, PV and TR with RI. The research has extended the body of knowledge in mobile shopping studies. The findings contribute valuable theoretical and managerial implications that can enhance mobile shopping services.
