About the role as business consultant

CPQ is a tool for streamlining a company’s business processes, by handling complex product configurations and automating the creation of quotation documents. The core of our work is always the CPQ software developed by Tacton, which is often integrated towards other systems, such as CRM, ERP or PLM. The configuration engine in Tacton CPQ software makes sure that the configured products are always manufacturable, while the pricing and document generation functionalities deliver accurate quotation documents.

As a Business consultant at Tacton, you work in exciting projects to simplify our customer´s sales processes, by implementing customer specific CPQ solutions.
