A Powerful Sales Tool
Commentaires : 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.
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.
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.

Good Software and Adminstration platform
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
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
FLSmidth programmer review
Commentaires : Overall i think CPQ is good, and have many good functionalities such as pricing models, automatic proposal generation and paramteric 3D view inside the configuration. However the UI needs to be changed. I would recommend that you find a group of people, that have never used the software before, and let them tell you about the experience.
I like the way that the prices are shown after you make the configuration. Also that you can control which pricing features that is visible for the user.
I think the UI is very confusing. We have many complains about it from our users. Also that you can't modify it to fit specific UI needs is bad.

Peter, Thanks for taking the time to review Tacton CPQ and sorry for delayed response. Instant pricing after every configuration selection is one of our differentiating features and I am happy you appreciate it. UI: we have listened to our customer's feedback on our configurator UI and during 2021 we have continuously improved the flexibility and look-and-feel. To mention a few: - Config sidebars can be hidden/shown depending on task -More layout options in View Designer regarding how fields and groups are shown on page -Rich text for long description fields -Better navigation across steps -Save & Finish configuration from any step (no need to go to results) ... If you do not see these improvements in your Tacton CPQ, please reach out to your CPQ responsible in FLSmidth to activate/enable them.

Tacton CPQ day to day
Commentaires : 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.
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.
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.

Thanks for taking the time to review Tacton CPQ and sorry for delayed response. Ticketing: As of now, any ticket created in Tacton Administration can be released to any of your Connected Environments. Excel: Tacton Administration tries to combine the best of Excel's data manipulation capabilities with a collaborative SaaS environment. I strongly recommend trying out our Desktop Connector which allows you to use Excel to manipulate data directly to the database in your ticket. To learn more, enter your Tacton Administration and go to Help center and search for "Desktop Connector". Looking forward to see more reviews from you.

It is a powerful rules based configurator for solving, simple to complex problems
Commentaires : 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.
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.
Powerful CPQ tool for all complex Configuration needs and Pricing strategies
Commentaires : Overall Quote generation time is reduced. Customer support from Tacton should be improved.
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.
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.
MyCPQ new way
Commentaires : It's very useful tool for business proposal. Reducing the man hours and create a lot of solutions as well. Useful for maintain relative product documents and information for individual solutions.
It's look easy for user interference, Very good future maintenance our product data.
Could not see the range for float value in CPQ page. When use “tc_field_view_picture” for help image, I could not set enlarge view. It seems limitation space to set a picture. So, We could not set a large image. Sometimes we need to fix the values as mandatory. So I suggest to implement the “Mandatory value” enabled in CPQ page For notes and warning message, It could be better to differentiate the UI style. Now it’s showing a gray out text always.
Right way to Automate
Commentaires : Really it increase the productivity of our company. Buy and do automate it.
Allowing user to work with excel to create 'n' number of classes and export it easily to Tacton. Allowing user to add macro files & java script files. Easy way to export .xml files. Very simple logical key words to write constrains. On of the best tool to automate your product. Unlike other software it wont crash ;)
User interface should be made much better. If it shows time and date for the parts, attributes, classes, constrains etc., when we select, it will very useful for tracing easily.
The integration to Creo CAD system. Easy to add data with excel
Not as flexible as we want in our applications.
Design automation in simplified manner
Commentaires : We automated our product through this, We reduced the designing time of 60hrs per product
1.Time-saving 2.Easy to use 3. Anyone can use when it get configured
1.Starting it will take time to set up the design automation and understanding
Very elaborate but hard to implement
Commentaires : Hard to implement but when implemented it works.
It is very elaborate. SaaS is wokring from every where too bad there is not a offline version to work with
Hard to use especially al the function in doc gen are difficult
Good Tooling, easy to use and scale
+ Constraint based Configuration + Excel Connection + Good Modelling Tool
