Tacton Systems increases presence in Germany by a joint venture

Stockholm, October 10, 2013: Tacton Systems, world leading software supplier for complex sales and product configuration, announced today that they strengthen their presence in Germany by forming a joint venture named Ventacor GmbH.

Germany is one of the fastest growing markets in the world for sales and product configuration and also one of Tacton Systems (Tacton) largest markets. Tacton has seen an increased demand for a strong local presence in Germany. The joint venture, Ventacor GmbH, will act in the German speaking part of Europe (the DACH region) and focus on sales, consulting and implementation of Tacton’s solutions for sales and product configuration.

The company will be managed by well-known experts in the German configuration and product modularization market as well as former Tacton employees.

“I feel very confident that we have found the perfect fit for a joint venture. Ventacor has everything we are looking for in a strategic partnership and it will help us to gain significant momentum in this market in the best way possible”, says Christer Wallberg, CEO Tacton Systems.

Ventacor and its customers will have the full backing and support from Tacton, as well as access to Tacton’s core competence in the form of more than 100 configuration experts. This is something that will benefit all of Tacton’s large customers in the DACH region as they will have access to strong local support.

“We have followed Tacton’s success and are very impressed by the unique technology and architecture of the company’s software. With Ventacor’s experience and expertise in configuration and product modularization together with Tacton’s strong solutions, we will be able to give the market very effective implementations and help our customers to see great return on investment” says Daniel Kortmann, Managing Director of Ventacor.
