Pricing that’s not just correct – it’s optimal

Many pricing solutions can help you get a correct price. Tacton’s pricing configurator goes further by proactively offering the optimal price based on factors that you consider important. These can include highest margin, customer value, lowest price, or a weighted combination of these and other attributes.

Easy updating with no downtime

Because pricing is set up in Tacton’s admin interface, changes can be made quickly and easily – without help from IT. This means you can respond quickly to shifting market conditions with price adjustments, discounts and promotions. The changes are distributed automatically to your channel, so your sales reps will always have up-to-the-minute pricing information.

Professional quotes with correct pricing in minutes

The pricing solution works seamlessly with Tacton’s quotation tools, so your team can put together professional-looking proposals and quotes with accurate pricing in formats that work for them – and your customers. And best of all, they can do it in minutes and hours, not days and weeks.

“For Husky’s digital transformation it’s key to use “best of breed solutions” that span across all businesses. Tacton is a key element in Husky’s sales process"

Steffen Bönecke

Director of Global Engineering and Operation Transformation

It’s always a challenge when you’re trying to roll out a new system. But the minute people started using Tacton, they could see the benefits and how it made life so much easier.

Marcel Goetzelmann

IT Application Consultant, Bürkert

The lion’s share of our sales comes from standard products, but it’s often our ability to offer customized solutions that wins us new business.

Mats Toftebrant

CIO, ELDON

Tacton is the most important sales tool we have. It is easy, fast and we can’t work without it!

Martin Björklund

Sales tools responsible, Swisslog

Tacton was the only solution we found that makes it possible to approach a configuration from different angles. Regardless of the customer’s starting point, the software always calculates the best solution by working with constraints on business rules instead of running down a decision tree.

Koen Boot

CIO, Vencomatic

I know many companies hesitate to introduce a configurator because they think – our products cannot be structured or streamlined in a good way or, our combinations are too complicated. We also heard these comments in our company. There were people who said it wouldn’t be possible, but it was. The configurator helped us overcome those concerns and even convinced the “experts” sitting on the product knowledge.

Dr Klos

General Manager, Yaskawa Europe Robotics Division

We quickly understood that a sequential, rule-based configurator would never meet our needs. We didn’t want to have to answer the same question over and over. We wanted to define a customer’s requirement and for that requirement to filter through to all areas it affected automatically. We also wanted to be able to start at any point in the configuration – if you don’t have an answer to a particular question, it doesn’t matter – the configurator should do the thinking for you. And that is exactly what Tacton provided us with.

Sicco Saft

Business Analyst, Meyn

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.

Jan Nilsson

Senior Engineer CRM Process & IT Development, Siemens

In the water treatment industry, lead-time is often more important than price. With the combined SolidWorks and TactonWorks solution, once our proposal is accepted, design goes through engineering in just a few days, then out to fabrication. This type of automation has been a key factor in our business growth.

Brian Bartholomew

Senior Project Engineer, ClearStream Environmental

“In the past, we did everything to the customer’s wishes. Today, the customer still has this perception, but we are in fact supplying a configured product based on carefully identified and standardized building blocks. This makes us faster and helps keep our stock levels down. It also ensures that products are already validated from a design and manufacturing point of view before an order is placed.”

Marcel Walvoort

Manager Product Configurator, Kramp
