Tableau is a generic data analytics platform while Tika is a mobile and data analytics solution designed specifically for life science sales teams incorporating workflow solutions and out of the box analytics tailored just for them.
Tableau’s main use is an easy to use self-service analytic tool to slice and dice data for home office personnel i.e.: analysts, analytics and sales ops personnel to identify and share their findings in graphical form from PC to IPad. However, this does not give the representative the prescriptive analytics they need to drive and protect sales in their territories.
Tableau does not scale well when faced with large volumes of data that need to be distributed to the enterprise. It is not designed for massive scalability and requires the integration of several other applications from partners with different capabilities to deliver the same features and functions as TikaMobile. Tika has successfully deployed our technology to fortune 500 life science companies, in both US and globally.
Tika has capabilities to get sophisticated systems to communicate and integrate I.e.: Oracle, JD Edwards, Model N (Contract information) and sort this information down to the rep level while allowing reps to push up new opportunities i.e.: rep sales forecasts, ROI calculators, procedure evaluations, etc. This empowers reps and managers to make strategic business decisions to enhance their performance, while increasing productivity. (No need to create spreadsheets it gets rolled up into higher level views automatically. Tableau finds it difficult to scale and perform at this level of complexity and functionality.
