Tableau selected for ease of use and quality of business intelligence at low cost

SEATTLE, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) today announced that Aegis Living has chosen Tableau to analyze its customer data. With 30 senior living communities in three states, Aegis Living embraces innovation and creativity to provide the highest level of care, comfort and service to its residents.  The ability to see and understand customer data allows Aegis to continue to ensure that residents' and families' needs are met with the highest possible standards.

"Tableau is easy to use and is providing us real answers," said Jessica Andrews, Director of Financial Planning and Analysis at Aegis, "We are gaining insights that allow us to better serve our residents."

Aegis has long had an enormous amount of data available to them regarding resident information such as care assessments, care plans, medications, staffing plans, incident reports and survey matters.  Being able to present, read and evaluate this data is where the true value of data resides.

"Tableau enables us to not only view our information in a form that is meaningful and understandable, but, importantly, we can make much more intelligent decisions based upon learning more about our business and the needs of our residents," said Dave Eskenazy, Chief Financial Officer at Aegis.  He also added that cost was a major factor in the implementation of Tableau.  "It is remarkable that small and mid-sized companies can get this quality of business intelligence for this cost. Because of the affordability of Tableau, the natural next step for us is to provide access to more members of the management team so they can build and interact with the dashboards individually."

"Aegis is a touching example of how data can really impact people's lives," said Elissa Fink, Chief Marketing Officer at Tableau Software. "With Tableau, Aegis will be able to keep a close eye on trends and insights that will ultimately improve care for seniors and their families at a sensitive time."
