Benefits to Manufacturers

Manufacturers will find tremendous value with Tableau. They can access data from a single source of truth and share it seamlessly across the organization.

  • Link similar data to gain key insights in seconds.
    • Ordinarily, this would take hours or days with more programming-intensive methods.
  • Leverage information from disparate sources.
    • From human resources, raw materials, capital investments, production equipment, logistics, to customer service and support, Tableau prevents data from staying siloed.
  • Improve process efficiency, centralize production monitoring, and better serve customers.
    • These manufacturing analytics drive actionable changes in workflow.
