We’re thrilled that so many of you rated Tableau as a top-rated mobile analytics platform. Many of you have told us access to insights on the go has enabled your organizations to become more productive and more responsive to your customers. Here are a few example cases.
Supervalu, one of the largest grocery and pharmacy companies in the US, has empowered store managers and distribution-center managers access to Tableau dashboards on iPads. Store directors who manage large, busy retail groceries with hundreds of team members can use live data to track workflow, vendors, and inventory throughout the day. If they notice a problem with a vendor, they can send a message instantly without going upstairs to an office. This way, they can spend more time on the floor, interacting with team members and customers.
Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC), a large Coca-Cola bottling plant, has provided more than 800 team members with data insight on mobile devices. As a result, sales team members can spend more time in the field with customers rather than in their offices, preparing manual reports. When a customer asks a question, the team member can turn to an iPad, pull up a dashboard, and provide an answer on the spot.
Creighton University's admissions counselors use Tableau to explore their data on the road. While holding informational sessions in target markets, the admissions staff can dig into the data on their iPads and answer students’ questions.
