Our expert reference from the metal and plastics industry

Tacto saves around 20% of the time previously spent preparing for supplier meetings. Sales and price developments can be viewed at the touch of a button. Tacto also displays the general supplier performance and development at the touch of a button and thus immediately identifies risks that can be addressed directly in discussions with the supplier.

Patrick Leyhr (Head of Operational Purchasing, SED Flow Control)

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

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.
