Tacton CPQ and CAD Automation

Enable anyone to create accurate, autogenerated 2D/3D CAD drawings and data for every configuration with CPQ and CAD Automation.

CAD Automation done right, by anyone

Moving with speed and accuracy has never been more important. But for many high variance manufacturers, providing accurate CAD data with proposals has become a challenge. The increased customization from buyers requires more resources in every sales process, making cycles long and cost per quote increase. Engineering teams are constantly tied up with back and forth with sales, while dedicating too much time to administrative tasks. 

Your customers demand highly-customized products, creating a situation where CAD designs must be drawn quickly and accurately. This puts engineers under a lot of pressure to quickly deliver accurate renderings of each customized product.  Without a proper solution, designs are left up to guesswork and rework. Automate repetitive, inefficient operations that take up your engineers’ time with Design Automation.

Extending Tacton CPQ capabilities with CAD automation will streamline your sales process. Empower customers, partners, and sales reps to generate accurate 2D and 3D CAD files instantly for product variants – even during the early phases of the buying journey.
