Hudson is a talent management consultancy, helping companies understand employee strengths and improve hiring processes. Consultants use Tableau Cloud to showcase projects in the office and on the go. Instead of long reports, consultants create beautiful dashboards. Clients can now quickly understand the data and explore unanswered questions. Within a year of using Tableau, Hudson noticed improved communication with clients across the world, transforming the way they see and understand data.
Tableau: How do your consultants use Tableau at Hudson? Viren Thakrar, Regional Research Development & Innovation Manager: We are a consulting firm. So our clients don't necessarily sit in the same physical building as us. Our consultants will often need to go out to clients to showcase, “okay, we've done this people project with you. Here's a dashboard that we've built.” Tableau: What are some benefits that you’ve experienced? Viren: We can grab a coffee, we can have the iPad open, and they can start firing questions at us and we can use the dashboard on a tablet to answer the customer questions. So the ability to be really mobile and present data kind of anywhere is really essential. We're a global company, but this particular solution really relates to our Asia-Pacific region. So we, again, need to be able to deploy dashboards across China, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong really easily. So [Tableau] Online really enables us to do that.
