Assembling price quotes is costly and time-consuming for manufacturers. The more complex your products, the more options that need to be specified and the greater the chances for errors.
Technicon and Tacton deliver configure, price and quote (CPQ) solutions that let your sales staff quickly turnaround accurate quotes, proposals and bid packages. By making your CPQ solution available to your most valued customers, buyers can generate their own quotes without delay. Your sales staff is free to focus on larger opportunities

From quote to order to production
Tacton’s document generation tools automate the production of proposal packages, including technical summaries, drawings, product sheets, user manuals, bills of materials and spare parts lists. Document templates can be customized to quickly generate professional, branded quotes tailored to your customer’s needs.
Quotes are populated with customer data from your CRM system and when ready, submitted to your ERP system for fulfillment. Tacton CPQ offers out-of-the-box connectors for the major ERP systems and native integration for cloud-based services such as Salesforce.
Design data captured during the quote process is sent to CAD engines to generate drawings and 3D models for manufacturing. Bills of material and routings are output to expedite production.
Monitoring and maintaining your system
Tacton CPQ Analytics lets you monitor your sales performance through online dashboards and executive reports. CPQ system logs and data from CRM and ERP systems are converted into actionable metrics to alert you to changing customer behaviors and market trends.
Maintaining your CPQ system is a team effort. TCbackoffice lets your team collaborate effectively by providing web-based data management, file versioning, synchronization with external systems, and data testing and validation.
