Tacton CPQ overview

What is Tacton CPQ?

Tacton CPQ is a cloud-based configure, price, quote solution, which assists manufacturing companies with proposal generation and visual configuration. Key features include approval workflows, document templates, customer lifecycle management, predefined dashboards and more.

The Tacton CPQ platform enables sales teams to configure products, generate budget quotations, and share pricing and support documents with customers via a mobile device. The approvals app allows managers and engineers to receive instant notifications and respond to queries, streamlining proposal workflows. Teams can use the visual configuration tool to prepare a portfolio, and share 3D models and product dimensions with customers. Its augmented reality feature lets engineers visualize and customize spatial configuration for products.

Built on Salesforce, Tacton CPQ features automated CAD drawing and engineer-to-order (ETO) processes and integrates with SAP ERP as well as Variant Configurator (SAP LO-VC). Managers can use the predefined dashboard to keep track of their sales funnel and assign role-based permissions to users. The solution is suitable for companies operating in industries such as commercial vehicles, fans, pumps, power generation, telecommunications, packaging, equipment manufacturing, robotics, and more.

A Powerful Sales Tool

My company is not using CPQ yet, mostly because of budget and resource issues. We are also waiting for all company divisions to be ready for the switch, and we are planning to link Tacton to Salesforce and SAP. All of this means that the project is quite slow, so it is still in the planning stages. That being said, Tacton has provides us with a test environment, and some structures and processes are already implemented there. The new interface looks sleek and modern, and it looks like CPQ will deliver all of our complicated requirements. We are eagerly awaiting the day that we can go live with the new system. It will be one of the first IT systems used across the entire company.

Pros
I like the straightforward and open programming of the tool. It means that administrators need to do lots of planning and documentation upfront, but it makes the system extremely customizable and tailored to the company's individual needs without having to pay external programmers for every change.

Cons
The open programming means that the administrators have to know what they are doing, even more so than with "standard" database administration. This isn't a fault of the Tacton team, it's just a result of the Tacon CPQ administration strategy.

Pros
The administration for the software is nice to use and easy to load tickets into production. The front end of the system where users are using has saved lots of time for users, and the flow is nice. Sometimes there are too many options but we have to break them down

Cons
Sometimes 2 people can work on the same ticket, without knowing or being checked out. There needs to be tight control on which elements are being working on

Tacton CPQ day to day

Used daily for 6-12 months

We are calculating our complex pricing with Tacton CPQ, coming from Tacton Modelling, and this works very well and simplified many things without simplifying our pricing structure too much.

Pros
It is clear, you have a good search function, lot's of customization possible. It is quick to use, easy to deploy new versions and release changes. The handling of our complex pricing works rather well and the amount of data is no problem.

Cons
We use it combined with salesforce, and this works, but is an integration, and not really part of salesforce (yet). And we cannot use the same ticket for releasing to production and test. I like Excel, but I have to get used to the idea of using excel as part of core software. Multi user and excel is not the best.

It is a powerful rules based configurator for solving, simple to complex problems

Review Source: Capterra

Initially we started using this configurator for Proposal purposes, later we have expanded the configurator for doing the order work as well (complete supply chain activities incl. ERP integration). Now we are using the complete end to end solution to support the CTO (configure to order) process. It really helped us in saving lot of lead time in proposal generation and in order processing.

Pros
This configurator is a very user friendly configurator. We need not to learn any special coding/language to write the programs in Tacton. It is very helpful for solving the rule based problems very quickly. It is also very easy to integrate with external calculation programs like MathCAD, STAAD, Fortran, etc, It mainly supports the end to end supply chain activities.

Cons
The configurator can be improved in iterative calculations like goal seek function and loop calculations. Even though we can do this in the current version using JavaScript, it would be nice to have this feature in Tacton function itself. Few improvements can be done on the User Interface, to make it more user friendly for the end user.
