Interorganisational systems (IOS) are seen to play a significant role in enabling organisations around the world to extend their supply chain and to engage in global trading efficiently and effectively regardless of their geographical locations. Existing studies have considered a small unit of analysis in applying the process approach to investigate IOS adoption in developing countries. Therefore, this study explores IOS adoption in Bahrain as an example of a developing country. A multiple case study was conducted with six companies in the grocery industry of Bahrain to investigate IOS adoption. This study enriches the existing literature on IOS adoption in developing countries particularly in the Arabian Gulf region, which is still limited and helps organizations in the related region to be aware of the issues involved in IOS adoption.
