STOCKHOLM, AUGUST 27 2018 – The software company Tacton, a global leader in CPQ solutions for manufacturing companies, has delivered a Configure Price Quote solution to vehicle manufacturer Solaris Bus & Coach – a leading European manufacturer of public transportation vehicles.
Solaris, which works with vehicle tenders from European municipalities and bus companies, now, with Tactons’s CPQ solution, has the possibility to automate and accelerate this process considerably, leading to a more rapid quotation process and eliminating order errors.
In the first stage, Solaris will allow its sales engineers to use the solution internally in the procurement process. In the next step, sales reps out in the field will be able to configure and provide complex quotations immediately while visiting the customer, via a computer or tablet.
“We are pleased to have Solaris using our CPQ solution for creating a simple and rapid quotation process that also can manage highly complex, individualized product solutions,” said Frederic Laziou, CEO Tacton Systems. “With Tacton CPQ, Solaris also acquires a solid foundation for being able to digitize and automate its entire sales process, and with our smart manufacturing connection we can link customer needs with product development and vehicle production.”
Zbigniew Palenica, Vice CEO of Solaris Bus & Coach commented: “Investing in CPQ solutions helps us to achieve even better customer service and to be more accurate in accessing customer needs. Together with the growing significance of e-mobility, we are able to combine solutions already in our offer: feasibility studies and need-based configuration.”
