Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The cost of the solution should be improved."
  • "It is reasonable and cheap as compared to other major tools. It has a good price, and people go for it because of its pricing."
  • "Pricing is not bad. It's competitive."
  • "At $70 per month, I think the price is a bit scary. I have a small consulting firm in Ghana, working in about 15 different African countries, and when it comes to our part of the world, $70 a month is a lot of money for software."
  • "The professional version of Tableau is quite expensive."
  • "It is a bit difficult for some people when they hear $70.00 per month, as some solutions are available for less than $10.00 or for free."
  • "The solution is very expensive. If you have many users then it is going to cost your company a lot of money."
  • "The price of Tableau is high, although there are different types of licenses available."

They can rotate measures and dimensions and graph them instantly using visualization best practices as suggested by… Read more →
