Tacton and Cadmes Enter into Reseller Agreement for TactonWorks

Tacton Systems announced that Cadmes B.V. has signed a reseller agreement for TactonWorks – whereby Tacton Configurator is embedded in SolidWorks as an add-in product. TactonWorks supports manufacturers in generating custom configured quotations and drawings for order processing. The agreement covers sales throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Cadmes provides industry expertise and solutions for the entire development process, supplying software within CAD, CAM, PDM and analysis. Cadmes is the largest SolidWorks reseller in Benelux, with more than 1,100 customers. Cadmes is certified with the CTSP and CASP certificates and awarded as an "elite-reseller" by SolidWorks.

TactonWorks is geared to manufacturers with a need for order-specific customization of the product design, e.g. engineer-to-order, assemble-to-order, or configure-to-order, where rules can define what is a valid design for the customer’s requirements. TactonWorks offers significant advantages in interactivity, validation, and ease of maintenance over competing Knowledge Based Engineering solutions for SolidWorks, in much the same way as 3D CAD has these advantages over 2D CAD.

Tacton is a good addition to our portfolio, due to its added value for our customers. Our customer’s questions are more and more related to the improvement of quality and quicker time-to-market. By applying a proven solution such as TactonWorks, we are able to completely meet the wishes of our customers,” said Gerbert Thelissen, COO of Cadmes.

"We are pleased to have an industry leader like Cadmes to sell our product configurator software. Thanks to this agreement, more companies will be able to design better products by automating routine engineering tasks,” said Christer Wallberg, CEO at Tacton Systems.
