Tableau CRM Cost and Compliancy Spotlight: Revenue and Reporting at a Glance

Author: Linda Nelson

If you’re familiar with the Salesforce platform you know one of its biggest draws is its ability to track, organize, and display relevant data. While Salesforce does have its own out-of-the-box analytics tools, some organizations need a more micro level detail of large quantities of data, which is where Tableau CRMformerly Einstein Analytics, comes in. 

What is Tableau CRM?

Tableau is a tool that integrates seamlessly with Salesforce to translate mass quantities of data into easy-to-follow reports. It takes data from across the entire organization and sorts it into meaningful analytics so that you can deep dive into details for things like KPIs, profit and loss, and balance sheets. 

In other words, really detailed and hard-to-follow information is shown clearly. You can see how everything is connected by pressing a button. There is no rabbit hole of data to get lost in or complicated trails to follow.
