Tacton Overview

What is Tacton?

Tacton Configure Price Quote (CPQ) software helps manufacturers use self-service, guided (and remote) selling to accurately configure complex products and services for prospective customers. Tacton’s CPQ solutions help manufacturers ensure correct pricing, deliver personalized and highly customized quotes, and massively accelerate the time it takes a salesperson to create a proposal using spreadsheets. Time-consuming back and forth approval sessions between the customer, the engineering team and the sales team are also minimized. In addition to CPQ, Tacton Visual Configuration gives your customers a fast and accurate visual representation of their product, in real-time. Tacton CPQ is also available for the Salesforce.com Sales or Manufacturing Clouds. Tacton CPQ Smart Commerce for Manufacturers extends Salesforce with powerful capabilities that make selling custom manufactured products easy. Developed specifically for the manufacturing industry, Tacton helps the sales organization configure and price even the most complex products and generate accurate quotations.

What do you like best?

They have managed to cover a lot of our specific business needs. Good team of consultants willing to find solutions for their customers Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have encountered issues such as system failures and inhability to use Tacton during periods of time until the problem is identified and fixed, this has happened wheneverTacton does a product release, I would definetely recommend to improve their release process and inform the users what has changed and what is the impact.

The CPQ still has a lot of functionalities that need improvement or that are very limited Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The time-saving features of Tacton are key. Technicians can provide the database with technical information about configurations and relationships between a diverse pallet of products, which is then instantly available for sales personnel when they create offers and BOMs. This saves time on both sides, and improves reliability by taking a good deal of human error out of the equation. Especially on the sales side, my company has seen such efficiency improvements since using Tacton, that working without it would no longer be acceptable. The time required for a sale representative to create a complicated technical offer has been reduced from days to minutes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only criticism i can think of has to do with the non-configurable products. We still use TC-Site, and we have many different sales-groups. Each sales group has price lists, templates, products, etc. that are assigned to them. The only aspect of TC-Site that cannot be assigned to these sales groups is the non-configurable list. This has led to the creation of several sites for different sales groups, which means much more overhead to do updates.

This is solved with CPQ i believe, which we are not yet using. Really this is the only issue I can think of, everything else that we have had problems with has been solved by the quite competent support team at Tacton. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Measure twice, cut once. You should be prepared to invest manpower into the administration of this tool. It is worth the cost, but the management of the product database is a full-time job. (this of course depends on the complexity of the products to be configured). Also consider integration into Salesforce, SAP, etc. These interconnections are costly and difficult to implement, so they should be planned well. But they are also worth it, to reduce double-data-entry and human-error. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time-saving and reduction of human-error are the biggest advantages. We have also implemented approval-processes in Tacton that help us monitor and control the profit situation across the sales team. Sales personnel are quick to offer extreme discounts to keep important customers, which is now subject to review thanks to the processes implemented in Tacton.

What do you like best?

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, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially we started using this configurator for Proposal purposes, later we have expanded the configurator for doing the order work as well. Now we are using the CPQ version to do 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Guided selling, Visualization and Pricing Engine is so powerful in Tacton CPQ. Their Ticket based Administration tool minimizes the conflicts during the release process. Workflows are easily configurable and Admin tool is very simple and easy to customize. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though with the Tacton DOCGEN, the proposal can be customized as you like, its very complex to understand the huge list of Tags provided. There should be an easy way to customize the Document templates than using the Tags. Also, Migration from older system to Tacton CPQ doesn't have best practice.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you dislike?

We have a highly customized version of TCsite and are looking to switch to CPQ but we were told there will not be any customization available with this product. I really hope that CPQ will be able to do what we need it to do. It used to be if we needed something changed we could get it changed, now it is a suggestion that goes into a queue for consideration.

Not sure if what I dislike is "Tacton´s fault". Maybe it´s our low level of IT capabilities ?!

I do dislike the lack of integration into our SAP C4C. Stand-alone is okay, real integration is preferable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Admin Ticketing system, importing tickets from other and patching

The system is very flexible and can add documents and change attributes that need to be linked and important to the business and other system Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When tickets are open, they essentially are not "checked out" so that 2 people may end up working on the same model or same document, but there could be a crossover between the 2.

There is no prevention stopping you from doing this, someone always has to keep an eye and manage the system releases

What do you like best?

The best thing about Tacton CPQ is fact, that we can improve company sales engineering process. We can eliminate order errors and improve connection between sales and manufacturing. Selling buses is challenging process, beacuse of complexity of our product. This software is making this process easier and faster. We also admire the fact, that quotation process is faster than ever before. Tacton CPQ is fully customizable software, that allows us to achieve our goals and meet business needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

High-level entry for administration of the software (TCStudio, Administration Panel, Creating templates - Docgen). The documentation for the API and other technical aspects, should be more explained. Technical documentation of this software should be provided. What is more, after each release of Tacton, it would be added value to our programmers, that they will receive changelog of backend changes (added classes, methods, etc.). Tacton developers should also consider, to start making webinars, that teach end users, about basic operations, that are available in this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try out this software, and you will never go back to the traditional quotation and product configuring process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rule-based configurator resolves problem of technical errors at the stage of selling the product. Additional benefits are: improving company sales engineering process, faster quotation process, user-friendly environment for variety of our employees helps them to fully understand sales-production cooperation in our company, applying Tacton CPQ solution also increased our customer satisfaction with sales process.

What do you like best?

The way to specify configuration models is very elegant and powerful in the sense that simple models can control very complex configurations. Although constraint rules is a significant part of it, it is more than that. It is the entire concept of how to build products through the model. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When used through Tacton CPQ, there are significant user interface and reporting limitations. Also, more than an actual dislike, is the fact that it is not trivial to understand the way the software works. Its elegance resides in the the particular way it works, which I have found challenging for people to understand at first. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is critical that you have an experienced partner doing the core of the first implementation. You need to have a very fluid discussion with the implementation partner as it won't be easy for you to grasp at first the details of the model being developed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tacton is allowing us to elevate the conversation our salespeople have with customers and prospects. It allows or reps to spend more time on the business issues than on the technical details of the configuration. It also helps us speed up the process of producing quotes, reduce mistakes in the ordering process and significantly reduce the level of effort in the audit processes we have in place to prevent those issues.

Currently CPQ is intended more for CTO companies. There is tremendous need on market for customisation and ETO processes.

The team we are working with currently is very qualified, we have been working with them for a while and they know our business needs and really try to fulfill all of our requirements. Even thouh the CPQ has a lot of limitations, out Tacton team always tries to find a workaround. We also have a very good working environment. We hope we can keep it as we had difficulties in the past trying to adjust, either to the PM or to the consultants. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I was expecting a lot more from the tool. I think in the begining Tacton offered us a lot more than the tool can actually do and it's very frustrating. Some functionalities that we thought were existing in the CPQ are not there and are not even being considered in the roadmap, so constantly we need to spend a lot of money trying to fnd workarounds for functionalities that for our company were a MUST from the beginning.

We have also experienced some dificulties with some of the consultants as they don't really know how the CPQ works so we have noticed this is very inefficient. I also believe this is being solved as we advance in the project and as the consultants acquire more exprience. Also if Tacton tries to keep the more experienced consultants (we lost the 2 best consultants we had because they left to other companies).

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would say, be very clear with what the business/technical side is requesting frim the beginning, have a very detailed defining phase.

Get information about the product and what it can deliver, not only from the Tacton sales people but try to find similar cases that you can compare your company to.

Be aware of the product limitations, it might be a headache or a very helpfull tool depending on what you are aiming for.

Try to document everything, have daily or bi-weekly meetings, work very closely with the PM, if you have a good one is very helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We required a configurator that could support our sales force in the sales process starting with the opportunity until the manufacturing of complex products. We needed a tool that could support multiple products in multiple legal entities, countries and factories (this is currently not solved but this was the initial idea)..

Even though we have crossed into multiple limitations, we have found a way to work with it. I also see that other companies are using it successfully which is a relief. I think we are on our way to find a suitable solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
