One of the problems most small wood-industry companies face is not being aware of their own information needs. They are also not familiar with the up-to-date information solutions and their providers. These facts make the selection of a suitable information system an even more complicated process. The purpose of our research was to form an appropriate decision model, helping companies with decision-making. With this aim in mind, we first carried out an analysis of information needs in small wood-industry companies as well as in the resarched one. We discovered that these needs do not differ much. Based on the results, we then determined the criteria for choosing the most suitable information system for smaller wood-industry companies and we received offers for 10 different information systems. Using the method of multi-criteria decision-making, we set up a decision model and we chose the information system best suited for the needs of the resarched company, as well as for other, similar small wood-industry companies.
