Empirical data collected from 141 ERP users showed that both intrinsic motivation and perceived usefulness has positive impact on individual assimilation level of ERP systems. We further observe significant moderating effect of organizational learning culture on the association between individual motivations and individual assimilation level of ERP technology. Our findings highlight the importance of organizational learning culture and provide some guidelines for the firms to facilitate appropriate organizational culture, so as to enhance the intrinsic and extrinsic motivators of ERP users, promote the employees’ fully utilization of the ERP software, and achieve business benefits with the assimilation of ERP systems.
