We hope you’ve all had a wonderful time during the holidays, and we wish you all the best for the new year! We’re very excited about 2017, but before we get to business we want to take time to reflect on the past year and what 2016 brought. Here are some highlights:
Announcing new leadership
In May, we announced a change in management and Fréderic Laziou was appointed new Chief Executive Officer for Tacton Systems. Former CEO Christer Wallberg joined Tacton’s Board of Directors as Executive Vice Chairman.
Tacton Extension for Salesforce CPQ
In October, we announced a partnership with Salesforce and launched Tacton Extension for Salesforce CPQ. With Tacton’s app, users can access all CPQ features within Salesforce Lightning, and from there experience a whole new level of connectivity. This will enable manufacturers to engage with customers, partners and employees in completely new ways, and provide an important competitive advantage.

Expanding our visualization capabilities
In November, we announced the acquisition of Lumo Graphics, a leader in the field of visualization. With joined forces, Tacton will be able to enhance its visualization capabilities within CPQ, along with expanding Lumo’s current product offerings. Looking forward, we are very excited about having added value to the Tacton team. The future looks bright (and great, thanks to Lumo Graphics’ great team)!
Availability on iOS devices
In December, we were happy to present two new Tacton CPQ apps, available on all iOS devices. This addition offers all things CPQ at the user’s fingertips. Using the Tacton configurator, Tacton CPQ for iOS devices is the perfect addition to the product family, adding an extra level of speed, ease and connectivity.
