Publish Date: January 14, 2017 - 9:30am

Tableau, a global leader in visual analytics software, just prior to the National Retail Federation (NRF) trade show, announces that 73 percent of NRF’s Top 100 US Retailers*, including all top 15 retailers, use Tableau. Tableau helps these retailers see and understand data across all segments of their business, from marketing and merchandising to store operations and supply chain.

The demand for faster, simpler, mobile-friendly data analytics tools has grown as more retailers rely on all employees – not just data experts – to explore data, ask and answer questions about their customers and make data-driven decisions. Whether online or in-store, Tableau helps retailers discover actionable insights around sales, promotional content, demand forecasting, product merchandising, customer segments and more. The resulting data visualizations empower retailers to make decisions that will enhance the shopping experience for their customers and ultimately, increase the bottom line.

Tableau will attend Retail’s Big Show, the annual conference hosted by the National Retail Federation (NRF), January 15-17 in Booth #418 at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. The company will showcase how top retailers are using Tableau to evaluate product sales, IoT customer analytics with omni-channel re-marketing, customer identification and segmentation through video capture, CPG planning and forecasting, supply chain solutions and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a virtual reality experience demonstrating Tableau dashboards within a retail store environment.
