Kelly ServicesA® Chooses Tableau To Support Talent Supply Chain Journey With Actionable Insights

SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) today announced that Kelly Services® (NASDAQ: KELYA, KELYB) has chosen Tableau to help its KellyOCG® clients view and understand their data. KellyOCG is the Outsourcing and Consulting Group of Kelly Services.  With Tableau, KellyOCG has moved beyond simply generating reports to creating actionable insights that inform the workforce strategies of their clients. Through the Alpha Release of their Talent Supply Chain Analytics portal, KellyOCG says its front line operations managers are saving a minimum of 10 hours per week on reporting and can now use that time to share insights, benchmarks and best practices with clients.

Prior to Tableau, KellyOCG either worked with the analytics capabilities of individuals VMS and ATS software, or created charts and graphs in Excel which were then pasted into PowerPoint decks for presentation. "The process was manually intensive, error prone and not scalable at the business unit or enterprise level," said John Healy, Vice President and Managing Director, Global Talent Supply Chain at Kelly Services. The company's customer advisory boards wanted to change the reporting process to create more insights, providing more value for its clients.

Tableau was selected due to its ease of use for non-IT resources, its user interface and presentation layer, and its ability to interact visually with its data. "The learning curve with Tableau is quick and the ability to see a picture change dynamically as we alter the variables is very powerful," said Dan Clinton, Senior Director, Business Intelligence and Data Analytics. 

"The complex multi-dimensional analytics and statistical analysis may have intimidated our operational teams and clients in the past, but now they're analyzed and visualized in a way that's consumable and forward-looking," Healy added.

He says Tableau's impact is measured by the value and insight that KellyOCG can deliver to customers and suppliers using data to make better, faster decisions. The goal is to deepen relationships by bringing insights that no one else can provide.
