Concentrix Distributes Groundbreaking Data Analysis Tool in UK
UK business management software specialist Concentrix Ltd is distributing Tableau, a powerful visual data analysis and business intelligence solution.

Concentrix believes Tableau will bring significant benefits to their existing customer base, as well as new customers. The software can work with an almost unrestricted amount of data from nearly any source, such as information held in CRM, Accounts or ERP systems. Tableau also allows non-technical staff to display complex data in easily understandable forms, and because it displays data in ways the human brain prefers data to be displayed, Tableau provides a clear, quickly comprehensible in-depth analysis of what’s happening within a business.
Asked why Concentrix is distributing Tableau, Peter Elgar, Concentrix Marketing Manager stated “Tableau fits in well with our portfolio of CRM and business management solutions because it can link directly to the data held within them. Tableau is also a major breakthrough in its own right - you don’t need any high level technical skills or have to go on a lengthy course to use it, and the results it provides are outstanding.”
Because Tableau can look at multiple data sources in many different perspectives, it can uncover meaningful relationships which would otherwise have remained hidden. But a variety of other Business Intelligence (BI) and data analysis solutions have been around for a while now, and have by no means achieved widespread adoption.
“The problem with many BI and data tools is that they’re hard work - difficult to use, interpret, and cost far too much” explains Elgar. “But Tableau is quick to set up, extremely cost-effective, and anyone who can use Excel can quickly get to grips with Tableau. The software itself is also intelligent, and actually helps users display data in the most appropriate form for the brain to comprehend”.
Concentrix is seeing interest in Tableau from a variety of industry sectors. “Tableau is a flexible product with uses in a diverse range of businesses and business functions. For example, we’ve already seen interest from pharmaceutical, manufacturing and IT companies, and from a range of people including business consultants, department managers and CEO’s.”
Tableau is available from Concentrix as a stand-alone application or as a web-based server version. There’s also Tableau Reader, which is a free application to enable anyone to look at Tableau results.
