Tacton Introduces Salesforce App for Manufacturing Industry

By Ken Briodagh September 25, 2018

Tacton, a company offering CPQ solutions for the manufacturing industry, announced at Dreamforce that its complete CPQ solution is now available on the Salesforce AppExchange.

The idea is that global manufacturers will now have access to an advanced CPQ solution that works natively within Salesforce. Tacton CPQ is designed to help drive operational efficiency by automating the quotation process and making it simpler and faster to sell complex products. Salesforce users can also customize products through Visual Configuration in a drag-and-drop process, aided by 3D product visualization.

“Salesforce users can now access one of the world’s most powerful CPQ solutions directly via Salesforce AppExchange,” says Nils Olsson, Chief Portfolio Officer, Tacton Systems. “Using Tacton CPQ with Salesforce is the next step for any company looking to deal with the complexity of their products while gaining traction in sales through the power of Salesforce.”

Main Features:

  • Powerful, constraints-based product configurator engine built to handle the most challenging configuration environments.  Constraints and attributes instead of rules mean dramatically fewer rules.
  • Advanced needs-based guided selling—engaging the customer, increasing win rates and customer satisfaction
  • Visual Configuration in 3D with drag-and-drop configuration and AR iOS app
  • Integration with ERP and CAD systems, such as SAP ECC, SOLIDWORKS, PTC Creo, and Autodesk Inventor
  • Fully cloud-based architecture
  • Omni channel support (partner and direct sales, online configurator)
  • Sell across markets and borders, while always supporting compliance with local commercial, technical, and regulatory requirements
  • Instant generation of professional looking proposals with all supporting documents
  • Support of advanced pricing models
