Faster speed to insight encourages data-driven decision-making
Speeding up the process of getting information to users was one of the business challenges that Gammon Construction wanted to solve, shared Tim. Before Tableau, month-end reports were the main source of information, and they went up to 120 pages. With these static reports, it was difficult to ensure that the relevant information would reach the intended recipients. Monthly reporting was also slow and inefficient, not to mention the cost and environmental impact of printing at least 2,000 pages of paper per month for every report.
In response to these challenges, the adoption of Tableau helped Gammon Construction do real-time reporting and analytics on a daily basis. Users have quick access to information, helping them make data-driven decisions. For Tim, this business impact is more valuable than any quantitative metric.
“Tableau gave our users the focus to make the right decisions – you cannot put a number to that.”
