Pixel Perfect in Local, State, and Federal Government

The adoption of modern BI platforms is an inevitable progressive step taken by government bodies in a bid to keep up with market pace, improve reporting processes, and better user experiences. However, even after adopting modern BI platforms (such as Tableau), government bodies find themselves still relying on the use of additional legacy BI platforms to meet their regulatory reporting requirements.

The reliance on additional and dated platforms (that are already maxed out) translates to higher costs and latency in the reporting process. To continue to invest in a tool / platform that fails to drive enterprise transformation through modern reporting processes does not make sense.

USEReady’s Pixel Perfect is a highly customizable reporting solution that seamlessly complements Tableau’s existing capabilities, empowering you to develop well-formatted print-ready reports, at scale as and when required.
