We use something called Tableau for visualization and we also use Segment. Our Data Analytics Specialist recommended it and since we started using it we have absolutely no complaints. It was a big step in and the right direction for us in terms of visualizing our funnel. It’s kind of becoming really, really important because most of the data we track is on there through the funnel from marketing to sales, so it’s become the go-to place for data for us right now.
Marketing Manager - Techloop
Tableau is a data visualization tool, but there is a learning curve, absolutely. Our guys here are very data-oriented. I had to motivate them to use the data points because they like programming more. It’s a good balance between not too complicated but not dumb so that they can do fun stuff.
Founder & Managing Partner - Clever Europe
We use Tableau as well but that is more by our data team for specialised work.
Co-founder & CEO - Brosa
Tableau is very visual, and allows you to quickly to create complex interactive visualizations. It is nice to work together with someone on a table. On the negative side, it is quite expensive. Also, it connects very quickly with the database and while this can be very helpful on one side, on the other side, sometimes people can interact with the data and influence the underlying database. It should not be that easy to do something like this.
Co-founder - Flexpat
We use Tableau, a databasing tool. It is very powerful, but somewhat hard to use.
Co-founder & CEO - Smiletime
We have tried Tableau but it was a little expensive for us.

Tableau allows us to create analyses in order to manage our business. We can also create and share reporting to the different departments.
Partner & CBDO - Dayuse.com
We created an in-house tool that we are offering to our customers. Our chief scientist uses the multi-purpose Tableau for internal analytics.
Co-founder & CEO - Breeze
With Tableau, you can reach all the different databases for consolidated reporting and analysis. Tableau has proven to be a valuable business intelligence tool for us.
CMO - TaskEasy
Tableau is very powerful. It’s not for amateurs but for data scientists. It provides valuable insights.
Marketing Director - FreshGrade
Tableau is for our business intelligence. We can’t use their cloud based service because it isn’t HIPAA compliant, so we’re using the desktop version, which is not ideal. The desktop version makes it harder to collaborate and onboard because everyone has to install it into their computer.
Co-founder & CEO - PlushCare
We recommend it. It has great visualization tools.
Founder & CEO - LifeLine Response
We look at weekly and monthly KPI’s via Tableau Online and/or Tableau Reader.
Head of Marketing - Pipedrive
We use Tableau for internal analytics. We chose Tableau because my co-founder, Dan, was already familiar with it.
Founder & CMO - Cloze
Both Tableau and Mode provide visual tools on top of our data storage apps. Tableau has really expensive licensing, so we use Mode for most investigative queries.
Co-founder & CEO - Segment
It's really flexible with what you can create and how you can customize it. I think it's been pretty good for us because we have very specific needs.
Head of Content - CreativeLive
We’re currently implementing Tableau. We had also used Domo for a little bit, but it was too expensive. We’ve also been using our own custom solution, made up of Google spreadsheets, etc., which works well, but we now need a more flexible and customizable BI tool. We chose Tableau because of its flexibility. We currently do a lot of work in Excel that shouldn’t be done in Excel, like running pivot tables on sheets with 30,000 rows, and Tableau has a lot of the functionality to allow us to get off of Excel. We won’t just be using it as a BI tool. It’s a really sleek, easy-to-use and well-established tool, and it’s much cheaper than Domo.

5%Stacklist Startups Are Using Tableau
Tableau is a powerful tool for organizing and analyzing the data from your other business intelligence and analytics platforms. Though it doesn’t gather the information itself, it’s an extraordinarily customizable service that allows you to visualize your company’s data in the way that’s most valuable to you. Tableau boasts optimized connections with nearly any data source, including Amazon Redshift, Hadoop and cloud data, which means you can analyze data where it resides, without having to create a separate platform.
Tableau is used exclusively by Series B and Growth companies, partially because of its expensive licensing, and partially because smaller companies don’t need such a powerful tool. Users appreciate its flexibility and high level of customization, which is optimal for startups with very specific data needs.
Tableau has both desktop and online versions, as well as a unique server option. The desktop Personal edition goes for a one-time fee of $999, while the Professional edition costs $1,999. Note that these prices allow for only one user. Tableau’s online version costs $500 per user per year, and the Server package requires you to contact the company for a quote.
