Matjaž Štor


The main purpose of the article is to motivate experts and researchers in the
field of business informatics and logistics to interdisciplinary integration in order
to develop a new concept of an information system that will help to strengthen
a company's competitive ability. The article analyzes the research carried out
between top managers, strategic managers and managers of logistics in the largest
Slovenian companies. Two hundred companies were included in the primary survey;
60 managers were selected in a representative sample and at the end 30 leaders
in statistical analysis. We sent questionnaires to our managers via e-mail. The data
were processed with the statistical program IBM SPSS Statistics 19, as a method
we used linear regression and multiple correlation. With the primary survey, we
measured satisfaction of the managers with existing information support for
logistics and found that logistical, strategic information professionals need to be
even more connected, so that management decisions can then be developed and
sustained. On the basis of the obtained data, it can be concluded that sufficient
investment of funds in the creation of an appropriate information system fosters
the development of business logistics. The originality and value of the article are
reflected in the interdisciplinary view of the concept of information support of
logistics in the development of new products, in the original connections of various
business functions, in the possibility of designing new information solutions and in
