Abstract: This article explores the characteristics of computer information systems referred to as decision support systems (DSSs). These are information systems directed toward managerial/staff use for significant, important decisions. The application of DSSs to the sale or acquisition of property is explained. Finally, he presents a case study of a major fortune 500 corporation in Dallas, Texas, which exemplifies the use of DSS to assist decision-makers in determining the terms of sale of a major downtown office tower.
