All the power of Tacton CPQ – native on the Salesforce1 platform
Tacton Extension for Salesforce CPQ complements your existing salesforce solution with powerful services so that your sales team can configure products and produce high-quality sales quotes including technical documentation, 3-D drawings, pricing and bills of materials – all from within the familiar environment of Salesforce.
Tacton Extension for Salesforce CPQ is built and hosted on the Salesforce1 platform and seamlessly extends your existing Salesforce processes. Your users will feel right at home as they simply continue working with the user interface and applications they already use to track and mange leads and opportunities.
Being native on Salesforce1, you can continue to rely on Salesforce for data, workflow and cloud security management as well as mobile functionality.
Powered by Tacton’s patented configuration engine
At the heart of the solution is Tacton’s innovative configuration engine, built to handle the most challenging CTO environments. The configurator quickly translates customer requirements into the best product offer available. User-defined rules and criteria optimize how the product should be configured and priced based on your business goals. This ensures that the solution will always be optimized – for you and your customer. Your sales team won’t end up selling products that can’t be delivered, or agree pricing and discounts that erode your margins.
The engine also radically reduces the number of rules required to represent your products. No programming is needed to make updates and new product components can be introduced without having to change rules or constraints.
This translates into dramatically easier maintenance, a lower cost of ownership and the ability to respond to market and product changes with ease and speed.
Customer-focused guided selling
Tacton Extension for Salesforce CPQ allows your team to focus on what your customers really need, rather than product features and functions. Configuration questions can be asked in any order and questions that don’t matter to the customer can be skipped entirely.
This gives your sales reps a great degree of flexibility when meeting with customers as they are not bound by a pre-determined sequence of questions. During the configuration, the system will highlight valid combinations and propose alternatives if an incompatible choice is made.
High-quality quotes that help seal the deal
When the configuration phase is complete, a quotation is generated automatically, together with all relevant documentation including technical documents, 2-D drawings, 3-D visualisations, pricing, bill of materials and any other supporting material. This not only saves an enormous amount of time, but it also guarantees a professional looking quotation package with zero errors. A quote that gives your customer all the information they need and fully supports their buying process.
