CPQ

WHAT IS CPQ?

By focusing first and foremost on your customers’ requirements, Tacton transforms the way you do
business, leading to better sales, more efficient operations, and happier customers. Our SaaS
(Software as a Service) solutions radically reduce time spent on upgrades and maintenance,
letting you concentrate on your core business - making what your customer really needs.
C is for Configure
The first step is to define the product - what components are needed and of what type? The best CPQ systems will employ ‘guided selling’, limiting the selection of components to those that are compatible or available
P is for price
Having chosen the components, a total costing is produced - with an effective cloud-based software solution, there is one ‘single source of truth’ for data, meaning pricing will always reflect the most recent, accurate information
Q is for quote
A complete, inclusive quote can now be produced for the customer. This would previously have required lengthy communication between designers, engineers and sales teams. With CPQ, quotes can be generated in real time

How can it help my business?

Tacton CPQ enables smarter manufacturing, creating a seamless, connected loop between sales,
engineering, and the factory floor. Creating complex products needn’t be a complex process.
Connect customer
Tacton CPQ places the customer at the heart of the process, allowing them to engage with sales teams and connect to product and factory in real time. Tacton CPQ is unique, connecting all the elements of your business, while solving configuration challenges that others can’t
Connect product
Real-time configuration tools allow the creation of complex, multi-line products, while constraints-based configuration and guided selling ensure that the product is feasible and exactly meets the customer’s needs
Connect factory
For complex assemblies and highly customized orders, engineering and the factory floor must be in complete sync. The fulfilment phase can be a major source of friction in the customer lifecycle. Tacton CPQ solves this, bringing the factory to the customer

Happier customers

Connected enterprise makes for a better customer experience, from order to delivery. Sales teams can now focus exclusively on the customer’s needs, leaving proposals and pricing to management. 100% accurate quotes mean rapid, 100% accurate fulfilment, building trust for even the most complex projects. Connecting customer, product, and factory ensures satisfaction for both parties, building long-term, productive relationships and increasing sales effectiveness.

Don’t take our word for it…

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

We can include tailored brochures, drawings and illustrations and everything is gathered automatically by the configurator. I feel that our sales people are now proud when sending out the quotations. The feedback from our customer base is very good and we are much more professional in the eyes of our customers.

General Manager, Yaskawa Europe Robotics Division

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

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.
