The top 6 reasons companies are getting SaaS-y with Tacton
It’s a subscription based service, so there are no up-front costs. You simply pay for what you need, when you need it.
When you choose to subscribe to Tacton’s SaaS offering, you only pay for what you need. There’s no need to buy software licenses or hardware to host your applications. And instead of provisioning internal resources to install and set up the software, the application is ready to go. This gives you a predictable cost structure and cuts your time to value.
When offered as a service, the entire CPQ solution is made available over the internet. Users can access it from anywhere via laptops and mobile devices, as long as they have a working internet connection. Use the software in on-site sales meetings and make it easier for employees working from home. Everything is up-to-date and available in real-time, including customer information and configuration and quoting capabilities.
Tacton’s SaaS offering resides in a scalable cloud environment. There’s no need to worry about the server sizing and software installations. The load on the system is carefully monitored and balanced at all times to provide full and uninterrupted service. When your needs change, simply add or reduce the number of users on your subscription.
You are free to configure the software to match your business needs. Tacton CPQ - delivered through SaaS is no different than an on-premise installation in this respect. Adjust workflows, organisational structures, user roles and permissions. It's even possible to create additional data objects and attributes if needed. No coding is required to change your application configuration.
Tacton’s SaaS deployment is built as a multi-tenant solution with a common, centrally maintained infrastructure and code base. New and updated functionality is automatically available to users, maximising your value. Forget about security patches, upgrades and other non-value-adding activities. It’s all taken care of.
Tacton’s SaaS environment is constantly monitored for both system load and security purposes and is accessible 24/7 with a 99.9% uptime. Full redundancy across multiple data centres means you always have access to your business data and CPQ applications – no matter what unforeseen events occur. And rest assured that your data is completely isolated and invisible to other tenants.
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.

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

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.”
