Tacton’s Story starts in 1987 when 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. By 1993, the group had developed a configurator for a pilot project that was causing quite a stir. Both the researchers and the Institute saw the commercial potential of what had been developed. After a further five years of prototyping and evaluation, Tacton Systems was formed as a spin-off from the research institute.
Tacton has an impressive customer roster with impressive results gained with the offered technology. Many of the customers are leading industrial manufacturers such as Siemens, ABB, Scania, Aker and Alfa Laval. Tacton works closely with their customers, large and small, to help them revolutionize their processes, to grow, and to become more competitive.
Today Tacton is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, with customers and resellers across the globe.
