Speed the design and delivery of highly configured products

No matter how sophisticated your product line or how many product variants you produce, Tacton CAD Automation helps you automate design work for any to-order process.

A natural part of design engineers’ daily work, it allows them to start a configuration model in just a few clicks. Configuration models can be stored in a model library and reused as needed for each new variant, bringing huge time and cost savings to your company.

Leverage your CAD investment with CPQ

With Tacton CPQ fully embedded in your CAD tool, you can leverage your CAD investment to create value-adding sales deliverables. Use Tacton CAD Automation with Tacton CPQ and your 3D CAD tool to dynamically generate configuration-specific 3D CAD models based on the criteria your customer chooses.

Bridge the gap between engineering and sales

With Tacton CAD Automation, your sales reps can generate customized 3D documents for quotations and download them directly to a web browser, without any CAD application installed on their computers.

This speeds the quotation creation process even more, allowing you to expand your direct and channel sales networks without having to expand your engineering and sales support departments.
