Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple.""ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool.""The company chose to purchase a creator license for me, which was $70. With that license, you can also be an administrator. We also have 20-25 extra licenses and they cost around $20-$35 each. Those are for normal users who will be viewing the dashboards. Those are monthly charges.""The cost of the solution should be improved.""Be careful with the Tableau Viewer's licenses, and stay with the right number of users.""The initial cost that is set according to CPU cores is expensive.""We always consider pricing when considering a new solution. We are a non-profit and price is a huge concern."
