April 13, 2021
Tacton announces Tacton CPQ with CAD Automation, a newly enhanced product capability that fully automates the generation of CAD drawings of customized and configured products. CAD automation allows manufacturers to configure, design and deliver custom products faster and with precision, eliminating errors and empowering customers, sales teams and engineering to generate technical CAD drawings automatically.
Tacton CPQ with CAD Automation empowers customers and sales reps without CAD skills to automatically generate technical drawings based on configurations. This automation empowers customers and sales while allowing engineers to focus on innovation, new products and other tasks.
“In complex sales, engineering needs to be involved in every customer case to provide detailed technical drawings to close sales and build the customized products, but misunderstandings and a lack of technical product knowledge often lead to invalid quote requests,” says Bo Gyldenvang, chief executive officer at Tacton. “When paired with our CPQ, CAD Automation automates these manual processes with ease, which makes sales teams more effective, frees up time for engineers, and, ultimately, delivers a pain-free experience to end customers.”
Some features of Tacton CPQ are as follows:
- Easy to implement: Fast, easy CAD mappings via point-and-click with no coding required can be validated immediately and directly connected to the CPQ platform to exchange data in the background.
- Easy to use: A simple, context-sensitive user interface speeds up navigation, matching the user interface of the host CAD system to ease orientation while integrated help texts speed up the onboarding of new users.
- Easy to maintain: Clear separation between configuration models and CAD mappings along with intuitive recognition of already mapped elements allows users to simply test individual values or a complete configuration.
Generating and providing CAD files early in the sales process eliminates misunderstandings and costly errors, ensuring reliability to the customer and promoting trust. Tacton CPQ with CAD Automation allows manufacturers to offer customized designs at a lower cost, creating a competitive advantage and boosting customer satisfaction.
