The TrendTopics development team is finishing our evaluation of a really cool new dashboard/reporting tool for our next-gen analytic interface.  Current customers using our monthly PDF reports will soon be able to access all trend, brand and influencer data through an interactive dashboard.  This will be in addition to our existing PDF/Print report offerings.

We’re still in a prototype phase and we’ll soon be opening up access for early beta users.  As for the tool?  It’s called Tableau, from a very innovative company out of Seattle.  Those in the business analytic space will immediately recognize Tableau as they’ve made quite name for themselves in a very short period of time.

We’re very excited about this new capability and the level of access, customization, and control it will provide into the TrendTopics data.

We’ll post updates here as we move closer to a beta release.
