CHICAGO and STOCKHOLM, March 9, 2020 — Tacton, a global leader in Smart Commerce solutions for manufacturers, today announced strong customer momentum throughout 2019, with an equally strong trajectory expected throughout 2020. The company also achieved several honors for its differentiated product advancements. Tacton’s growth reflects strong demand for its solutions that leverage Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) technologies to help modern manufacturers address the challenges they face with customizing high variance products, increasing efficiencies, sales volume, and net profit for Tacton clients.
“We are proud of our recent momentum because we believe it signifies stability on three fronts: analysts, existing customers and businesses that want the support of our world-class organization and solutions,” said Frederic Laziou, CEO of Tacton. “We think all of this positivity has created a rock-solid foundation for 2020 and put us in position for further momentum moving forward.”

The business had its best year to date in attracting new North American customers, showing 105% growth in annual recurring revenue (ARR).
