Increased data interactivity for improved business decisions
The medium is, indeed, the message when it comes to presenting data.
Despite collecting large amounts of critical data, LIXIL International faced the challenge of presenting it clearly to essential stakeholders. Previously, they would generate the data sets on Excel sheets, create pivot tables and present their findings using PowerPoint slides.
But this format proved to be both uninspiring and unimaginative. The lack of data interactivity meant that the team often found themselves unable to drill down to the granular level when queried about the information. By tapping on Tableau, LIXIL International is now able to present data in a more insightful manner, helping the company to formulate strategic plans and take bold new steps towards the future.
The improved data visualisation allows key stakeholders to analyze the individual product categories, distribution channels, customers and product codes. It also enables users to view sales and profit margins according to the most exceptional granular level of product codes.
“The senior executives who had seen the dashboards are pleased with the level of details in Tableau that was not provided in Excel Pivot Tables,” said Meow Leng. “With Tableau, we are now able to build interactive dashboards to present to our management team for them to make better-informed decisions.”
