Connects sales and manufacturing - eliminating order errors
Because Tacton CPQ validates the complete solution space after each selection, the proposed solution is always 100% correct, down to the bill-of-material (BOM) level. This connects sales and manufacturing in an entirely new way, ensuring that they always stay in sync and removing error-prone information handovers.

Watch CPQ in Action
The beauty of the Tacton Configurator is that it will guide the sales rep through the sale and get the configuration of the product and quotation correct each time. It now takes us only five minutes to generate a complete budget offer including pricing. This saves us tremendous amounts of time and money.
“Our biggest success is the fact that we are able to react so quickly and get quotes to our customers immediately. Some of our sales team are impressing customers by doing configurations together with the customer and leaving a budget quotation at the end of their visit.”
“We wanted to reduce the number of questions it took to configure a line by 50%, and we wanted more ‘first time right’ quotations. With Tacton, we ended up doing a lot better than that.”
