Tacton Awarded “Data Solution of the Year – Industrial” in Third Annual Data Breakthrough Awards

Global manufacturing technology leader recognized for its exemplary work in the industrial sector

CHICAGO and STOCKHOLM, March 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tacton, a global leader in Configure, Price, and Quote (CPQ) solutions for manufacturers, today announced it has been recognized for its data solution of the year in the industrial category by Data Breakthrough Awards. Tacton’s CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) software helps industrial manufacturers improve efficiency by automating business processes and eliminating order errors for highly configurable manufactured products and services.

The demand for digital technologies in the industrial manufacturing sector is rapidly accelerating due to market changes, including supply chain disruptions, staffing shortages and growing consumer demands. According to Tacton’s 2022 “State of Digital Manufacturing” survey, 59 percent of respondents named “driving sales and revenue” as a top priority to remain competitive and bolster growth, and as many as 77 percent said they are investing in supply chain optimization. Built for industrial manufacturers, Tacton’s CPQ software helps solve this problem by offering need-based guided selling for customer requirements, providing accurate, high-quality proposals, and accelerating sales by offering 100 percent correct product configuration.

“The pandemic continues to cause disruption for industrial manufacturers, coupled with the growing need to digitally transform operations to better serve customers,” said Bo Gyldenvang, CEO of Tacton. “Our solution helps address the pain points many manufacturers face today. This award recognizes our value and further solidifies our position as a leading CPQ innovator helping manufacturers drive efficiencies and growth with our best-of-breed software offering.”
