Matthias Schlotter (Purchasing Manager, Schwäbische Werkzeugmaschinen)

We didn't need a tool that we have to invest 100 hours in, we needed 'plug & play' - and that is 100% given with Tacto.

Dr. Stephanie Burghart, Chief Procurement Officer

What particularly impressed us was the quick and smooth implementation, along with the enthusiastic adoption by our employees from day one. Employees proactively request access to the software and are extremely satisfied with its usability.

Robin A. Lippmann , Head of Procurement and Materials Management - MOBIL ELEKTRONIK

Tacto is the optimal partner for us because Tacto is perfectly tailored to the customer needs of medium-sized businesses. For example, with Tacto we can eliminate manual, non-value-added activities and get an overview of categories, articles and suppliers at the push of a button.

Tobias Demmer, Group Procurement Director - HERMA

"We onboard 4-5 new suppliers per month. With Tacto, we save ourselves 30-60 min of time per supplier."

Zvjezdan Garic, Head of Supply Chain - Belimed Life Sciences

"We just sent Tacto a file and an unedited SAP export. Within 2 weeks we had a solution that fit for us."

Sebastian Vey, Deputy Procurement Manager - HUBTEX

With Tacto, we are significantly advancing the digitalization of our procurement process. Thanks to the user-friendly software accessible to all employees, we are transitioning away from Excel-based processes toward a fully digitalized procurement system. Just a few months after implementation, we have already observed substantial cost-saving potentials.
