Tableau: What are the essential advantages of Tableau?
Philipp von Ditfurth: At the same time, the combination of Tableau Desktop and Tableau Online gives us the ability to easily integrate Tableau with our cloud based products.
Last but not least it’s simply the performance. We decided to go with Tableau because it allows us to switch seamlessly. And thanks to Tableau’s system partner we were able to very quickly deliver on the wishes and requirements of our customers.
Tableau: What impact has Tableau had on your customers’ day to day work?
Philipp von Ditfurth: For similar analyses, multiple hotel staff had to work in huge Excel files, often for several days. And since this sort of information is required daily, it was a lot of work. Now with Tableau, the data is prepared and ready at the touch of a button.
What used to take hours of tedious work is now instantly available at any time. This means hotels are now able to adjust their pricing not just once, but multiple times per day and directly impact the hotel revenue.
By seamlessly integrating Tableau into our own cloud-based product, we are able to deliver higher quality services. Users have direct access to their data without ever switching systems in order to analyze data for their core tasks. Everything is available right in the product, making daily work a lot more efficient.
Tableau: What are your plans for the future?
Philipp von Ditfurth: We started by making Tableau available to our customers in the form of Tableau Online. The next step was to integrate Tableau into our own solution. This is the general direction we’re moving in. We want to integrate Tableau even deeper into our product and, by doing so, deliver new and better services to our customers.
