Cost-cutting data strategies

Don't compromise on data

A 2017 Deloitte survey of senior finance executives found that cost reduction has become a global imperative, with 86% of global respondents saying their companies are likely to undertake cost reduction initiatives over the next 25 months.

In this webinar, Tableau’s Travel and Procurement teams, show you strategies to reduce your business costs using analytics. And you’ll come away with an understanding of how analytics can be used to achieve your goals. They’ll cover:

  • Best practices for reducing your business’s flight and hotel costs
  • How to ensure compliance with your employee expense policies
  • Strategies to track your suppliers and service level agreements
  • How to spot the vendors you should talk to about pricing discounts

About the speakers


Mike Crook

Director of Finance Data Office, Salesforce + Tableau

Mike spent four years as a software developer supporting financial & management systems before moving into a number of different IT management roles. In 2001, he moved into his first “data analytics” role and luckily discovered Tableau Desktop in 2007. This discovery changed his career. Mike joined Tableau as the first IT Finance Manager in late 2011 and in 2015, he took on a new role as the Senior Manager of Analytics to enable everyone at Tableau to use Tableau. In 2016, he moved back into Finance to lead Finance Analytics. Now he is the Director of the Finance Data Office at Salesforce driving Data Strategy, Governance and Analytics across the entire Finance organization (which includes Tableau). He’s excited to share how anyone, but specifically finance professionals, can use Tableau to see and understand their own data.
