Solution improves decision making at reduced costs.
MicksGarage.com, an online retailer for car equipment, says it has speeded up data processing at reduced costs after deploying Tableau Software’s business intelligence solution.
Ciaran Crean, founder of MicksGarage, started looking for a system that would better manage the big data received from customers, websites, call centres and warehouses each day.
"We were looking for a scalable product that was vertical independent and which empowered our users to mine a wide array of data," he explained.
"Having previously analysed our data through a mix of Excel, the IT department and a variety of other sources, we wanted to find a more professional solution that enabled us to make informed business decisions quicker."
Tableau’s solution Tableau Online has enabled MicksGarage.com’s to edit and share its analytics dashboard without extra administration and maintenance support from IT, according to Crean.
He said: "The speed of the Tableau Online is fantastic, as is the ability to share views via a URL. Our employees can also access dashboards wherever they are."
James Eiloart, VP of EMEA at Tableau Software, added: "Tableau Online allows people to get their analytics up and running in minutes and users can be added in a few clicks.
"As it is completely scalable and secure and requires no infrastructure, Tableau is the perfect fit for quickly growing businesses such as MicksGarage.com. It’s the fastest way to get everyone in a company using powerful analytics to make better decisions today without high upfront investments and complicated logistics.
