Tableau: Business Intelligence Software for your Advisor Data

Emma Farrell News & Updates

Advisor Energy Monitoring Software acquires and analyses energy usage data from energy meters and converts it into management information. Real-time energy data can be visualised as easily understood charts, graphs and maps. Users can create targets, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and automated reports to plan, measure and track efficiency increases.

Tableau software offers interactive data visualisation dashboards and reports focused on business intelligence, which can help Advisor customers investigate specific aspects of their energy data. Follow the steps below to export your Advisor data for use with Tableau.
