The objective of our study is to examine the impact of contingency factors and the COVID-19 crisis on the adoption of information systems, as well as to assess the level of user acceptance of ICT. We conducted our quantitative research based on the distribution of a questionnaire as a data collection tool and used SPSS software for testing and verifying research hypotheses. The results highlight the influence of contingency factors and the COVID-19 crisis on the adoption of information systems. They also demonstrate the impact of perceived usefulness and ease of use on the frequency of information systems usage. A larger sample size could further elucidate the contributions and limitations of our findings.
