SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2014

SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) today
announced that Kelly Services® (NASDAQ: KELYA, KELYB) has chosen Tableau to
help its KellyOCG® clients view and understand their data. KellyOCG is the
Outsourcing and Consulting Group of Kelly Services. With Tableau, KellyOCG
has moved beyond simply generating reports to creating actionable insights
that inform the workforce strategies of their clients. Through the Alpha
Release of their Talent Supply Chain Analytics portal, KellyOCG says its front
line operations managers are saving a minimum of 10 hours per week on
reporting and can now use that time to share insights, benchmarks and best
practices with clients.


Prior to Tableau, KellyOCG either worked with the analytics capabilities of
individuals VMS and ATS software, or created charts and graphs in Excel which
were then pasted into PowerPoint decks for presentation. "The process was
manually intensive, error prone and not scalable at the business unit or
enterprise level," said John Healy, Vice President and Managing Director,
Global Talent Supply Chain at Kelly Services. The company's customer advisory
boards wanted to change the reporting process to create more insights,
providing more value for its clients.

Tableau was selected due to its ease of use for non-IT resources, its user
interface and presentation layer, and its ability to interact visually with
its data."The learning curve with Tableau is quick and the ability to see a
picture change dynamically as we alter the variables is very powerful," said
Dan Clinton, Senior Director, Business Intelligence and Data Analytics.

"The complex multi-dimensional analytics and statistical analysis may have
intimidated our operational teams and clients in the past, but now they're
analyzed and visualized in a way that's consumable and forward-looking," Healy

He says Tableau's impact is measured by the value and insight that KellyOCG
can deliver to customers and suppliers using data to make better, faster
decisions. The goal is to deepen relationships by bringing insights that no
one else can provide.
