Tacton is a world leader in sales and product configuration.
Our ground-breaking technology redefines how product configuration is managed – making it dramatically simpler to design, configure and sell complex products.
Our products are based on the patented technology in the Tacton Configurator.
Back in 1987, a group of engineers and programmers at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science were doing ground-breaking research in the field of knowledge-based systems, and the application of artificial intelligence to solve industry challenges.
The researchers were convinced that there were great gains to be made by applying the principles to the field of product configuration. The research team worked in close collaboration with companies such as Ericsson, ABB, and Alfa Laval – companies that provided demanding real-world requirements.
The group developed a configurator for a pilot project that caused quite a stir. Both the researchers and the Institute saw the commercial potential of what had been developed, and Tacton Systems was formed as a spin-off from the research institute.
Today Tacton is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, with customers and resellers across the globe. The company is founded on innovative research and collaborative thinking, and we are just as dedicated to advancing the field of configuration today as we were back then.
