Tacton CPQ for Salesforce extends Salesforce with powerful capabilities that make selling custom products easy. Developed specifically for the manufacturing industry, Tacton helps sales to configure and price even the most complex products and generate quotations that will set you apart from the competition.

Next generation CPQ

Tacton uses Artificial Intelligence techniques along with a unique approach to product modeling to solve the most challenging configuration problems. The software ensures that your entire sales channel presents your best and most competitive offer to the customer - every time.

With capabilities such as visual configuration and needs-based guided selling, you can start impressing your customers and transforming your business today.

Bring your products to life with Visual Configuration and AR

Tacton’s Visual Configurator lets you and your customer configure products in the most intuitive way imaginable. Drag and drop options and features, change dimensions and project your product in the real world with augmented reality (AR) – you can do it all.

New levels of connectivity for smarter manufacturing

Direct links to the latest ERP/PLM materials information ensures that sales, engineering and manufacturing are always in sync. There's no need for data duplication or information handovers. This connectivity eliminates order errors, and your sales team always position the latest and most competitive products.

CAD drawings at the click of a button

Tacton CPQ for Salesforce automatically generates detailed CAD drawings based on your product configurations. Whether you’re using SOLIDWORKS®, Creo® or Inventor®, Tacton has you covered. This saves valuable engineering time and shortens quoting time.

Streamline your complete quote-to-cash process

By adding additional Salesforce apps alongside Tacton CPQ for Salesforce - such as Contract Management, Electronic Signatures and Revenue Management - you can streamline every step of the quote-to-cash process.

A buying experience that’s second to none

Tacton CPQ is different because it is driven by how your customers intend to use your products and by their commercial goals, not by the need to define product features and options. Your customers can see their product take shape in real time as they move through a configuration. Likewise they can see the Bill of Materials and pricing update with each selection. Their custom quotation can be generated at the push of a button.

CUSTOMER STORIES

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.

Marcel Goetzelmann

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.

Mats Toftebrant

CIO, ELDON

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

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

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.

Sicco Saft

Business Analyst, Meyn

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.

Jan Nilsson

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.

Brian Bartholomew

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.”

Marcel Walvoort

Manager Product Configurator, Kramp
