In the year 1998, I started working on Baan IV b2. One of my first end-to-end implementation was a small industrial value manufacturing company called Virgo Engineers Ltd, being fresh out of IIT Bombay, I was full of enthusiasm. Baan became one of the best thing I had learned ever. VirgoBaan Implementation lasted for more than 15 months, during the same, we also worked on few other implementations like Dana Spicer, Thermax Chemicals and so on.

In 2008 again, after a decade I happen to head a Baan implementation project as head of IT (CIO for http://www.mcc.es in India,spanish multinational), after working on most of ERP and BI solution I left that there are some situations where Baan is best.

Baan is one of those companies, where product strength surpassed the strength of company, Baan company went through troubled times for several years and hence was sold multiple times, but anybody who has worked or consulted on Baan can vouch for its strength.
