Tacton Configurator verifies orders at Rocla
Rocla Oyj employs state-of-the-art configurator technology from Tacton to bring new efficiencies to its sales and order processes
Rocla, based in Järvenpää, Finland, specializes in the design and manufacture of electric warehouse vehicles and remote handling solutions, which it sells under both its own brand and the Caterpillar/Mitsubishi brands. Rocla builds-to-order and sells these products throughout Europe.
The Tacton Configurator technology has helped Rocla to streamline its extensive catalogue options, simplifying the sales process and ensuring a more prompt and accurate order specification. In the process, the company has been able to redesign its price list, making it easier to use for the sales staff.
"With the Tacton solution, we have been able to implement a system capable of handling all the variables in the order process in a dependable and effective way," says Velli-Matti Myllymaki, Development Manager at Rocla. The technology is fully integrated with Rocla's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system so that all country-wide orders are automatically configured before they go for manufacturing.
"Rocla's deployment of Tacton technology is another demonstration of the adaptability and suitability of the concept for a wide range of industries," says Christer Wallberg, CEO, Tacton Systems. "It is further proof of the efficiency of the concept."
