Needs-based selling helps your sales team to lead customers to the right decision, based on their specific needs and the factors that matter to them – whether it's intended use, running costs, price, energy efficiency or other preferences. This gives your customers confidence in their buying decisions while enhancing their experience.
Predefined rules optimize how the product should be specified and priced – based on your customers’ needs as well as your own business goals. This ensures you’ll offer the deal that is best for your customer, and for you. Your sales team won’t sell products that can’t be delivered, or agree on pricing and discounts that erode your margins.

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

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.

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.”
Manager Product Configurator, Kramp
