Streamline Your Sales Quoting and Pricing

Arm your salespeople, customers, and distributors with the power of CPQ (Configure, Price and Quote). Easy to access and use, the cloud application expands who can participate in configuration and ordering of complex products.

Create accurate and professional quotes that automatically generate pricing and drawings. This can lead to faster sales cycles and increased profitability with fewer errors. It also allows engineers to focus on what they do best: engineering.

Save Time on Bill of Materials Outputs

With the ability to generate accurate and up-to-date BOMs with the click of a button, your engineers and designers can more easily manage their product designs (and design changes), ensuring that all necessary components are included. This can help streamline the manufacturing process and reduce errors and delays.

Every team benefits from CPQ and automation:

Leaders and Sellers

Close Larger Deals, Quicker
Provide clarity in options to customers, salespeople, and distributors with easy configuration, instant pricing, and automated quotes.
Instant Feedback for Customers
Win more often with no more waiting for design choice validation, pricing details, or a rendering for a customer quote.

Engineers and Designers

Automated CAD, Design, and BOMs
Get out of the minutia of the build. Leverage engineering rules and the power of configuration to drive standardized outputs for quotes and fabrication.
Less Transacting, More Designing
Clear the backlog of orders needing custom engineering and design. Focus on product innovation.


Accurate Drawings and BOMs
Remove the human error in hand-offs. Get validated, accurate inputs you can confidently fabricate upon.
Fewer Errors at Every Step
With rules-driven configuration, the quote, order, drawing, and other aspects of the build aren’t messed up by human hands.

3 Tacton CPQ Solutions for Building Materials Manufacturers
Demand for more and more custom options is making life harder and harder for building materials manufacturers. More parts, more constraints, more custom engineering, and one-off pricing mean selling building materials has never been more complicated. Fortunately, however, this cloud of complexity has a silver lining. Buyers’ expectations might be sky-high. But they’re prepared to […]
Structuring, Migrating, and Sharing Better with Engineering Data Management Software
I’ve never met a manufacturer that takes pleasure in managing, structuring, and migrating their engineering and design files. It can be a time-consuming, budget-swallowing, catastrophe-laden process that distracts designers and engineers from doing their best work. But technology changes fast, and new software relegates old, making engineering data management software and data migration an inevitable feature […]
