"Alteryx has made work fun. It enables me to think of a concept and then quickly sketch that on the designer white space by 'drawing some boxes and lines' - it doesn't even look like work. The volume of data our team is able to blend together allows us to answer questions we never thought possible, and every time we deliver a solution we get 10 more ideas on what to do next."
