Baan is now iBaan, fully focused on the Internet via Portals and web technologies, across CRM, ERP, and SCM spaces.

good year e r p  The iBaan E-Service is good as far as it goes, but it doesn't offer true interactivity. Users can diagnose problems, submit new issues, and view status of existing issues. But it doesn't enable the customer with such interactive tools as Call Me Now buttons, web chat facilities, Voice over IP (VoIP), or even the ability to add comments to existing issues, or update its own account information (e.g., contact information).

Support and Maintenance: No Longer the Software Industry's "Best Kept Secret"?
