Tacton Systems signs agreement with Salesforce.com

Tacton Systems is now part of salesforce.com’s ISV Force Program. The Program brings the CRM community closer to a number of services and solutions that can be integrated into the CRM solution. This helps users increase the use of the system and extend it to more services than just CRM.

Tacton Systems has worked closely with the CRM team to achieve a seamless integration between the two products. The solution is published on the AppExchange. Companies with complex products can now create sales quotes in the CRM system using the most advanced rules engine available. Through Tacton’s close integration with PDM and ERP systems companies can close the loop between the sales and manufacturing processes and thereby gain considerable agility and competitive advantage.

The agreement means that Tacton can address a wide market and jointly meet the needs for complex configuration that many organizations have today.

Ever since Tacton Configurator was introduced on the AppExchange early last year, it has won a lot of praise from staff and community. It enables users to interactively configure, price, and create professional quote documentation for any kind of configurable products. Successful customer implementations include the Dutch company, Meyn Food Processing Technology.

Tacton Systems utnämns till Gasellföretag 2012

Stockholm 4 december 2012: Det svenska programvaruföretaget, Tacton Systems, specialister inom avancerad produkt- och säljkonfigurering, meddelar idag att de har fått den ärofyllda utmärkelsen Gasellföretag 2012.

Dagens Industri utser varje år landets snabbast växande företag till Gaseller. Det är färre än 0,5 % av alla Sveriges aktiebolag som årligen möter de kriterier som krävs för att bli Gasell.

Kriterierna för att bli ett Gasellföretag grundar sig på de fyra senaste årsredovisningarna och innefattar bland annat en omsättning som överstiger 10 Mkr, fördubbling av företagets omsättning  från det första till det senaste räkenskapsåret (de 4 senaste åren) samt att tillväxten varit organisk och att man inte växt genom förvärv eller fusioner.

Tacton Systems har vuxit organiskt och expanderat kraftigt på ett mycket framgångsrikt sätt de senaste åren. Omsättningen och personalstyrkan har fördubblats bara under de senaste tre åren. 2011 visade företaget upp en tillväxt på 51 %. Att det går bra för företaget är något som utnämningen till Gasell också bekräftar.

”Vi är mycket glad och stolta över den här utmärkelsen. Vi har jobbat hårt med att få en bra plattform för företaget att utgå från och nu börjar vi se resultatet av våra investeringar och hårda arbete. En utmärkelse som denna blir ett kvitto på att vi gör rätt saker och definitivt är på rätt spår”, säger Christer Wallberg, CEO Tacton Systems.
