Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine and describe the effect of work discipline on the use of mSFA, the effect of work motivation on the use of mSFA, the effect of work tidiness on the use of mSFA, and the effect of using mSFA on discipline. Design / Method: This research is a quantitative study and the sampling technique is simple random sampling where the research sample has the same unlimited opportunity to be selected as a sample. The analytical method used in this research is descriptive analysis and GSCA analysis. Findings: job discipline has a significant effect on the use of mSFA, work motivation has a significant effect on the use of mSFA, the use of mSFA has a significant effect on the use of mSFA. To complete future studies, researchers may consider using objective data from the database system from before using the mSFA system until some time after using the mSFA system. Originality: The researcher also tries to determine the relationship between work discipline and the use of mSFA and work motivation to update previous studies. By combining variables that affect income and the impact of usage on individuals, this research method differs from previous studies.
