Databox

About Databox

Databox is a cloud-based business analytics tool that allows users to create custom analytics dashboards incorporating data from multiple sources, which can be viewed on any device. The system is designed for marketers, analysts, and CEOs, and offers one-click integrations with a range of cloud services and databases for data import, as well as an API for custom integrations.

The Databox Designer allows users to build KPI dashboards using a drag-and-drop editor, with the ability to customize views by changing data visualizations and adding metrics. Data from multiple sources can be displayed without requiring any code, and users can control access to their datawalls by restricting permissions and IP addresses. Live previews let users view data in real time, and the query builder can be used to import custom metrics, events, statistics, and goals. Users can also control advanced settings for each metric, such as modifying time intervals, currencies, and chart formats.

The Databox apps for iOS and Android automatically deliver daily scorecards to users’ mobile devices at specified times, and weekly summaries containing metrics selected by users. Alerts are also automatically generated when trends emerge or sudden changes occur. Data can be annotated in the mobile app, and shared with teammates, and passcodes or Touch ID can be enabled to ensure that data is kept secure.


Key benefits of Databox

  • Custom metrics, statistics, events, and goals can be imported from multiple cloud services and added into dashboards, with the option to preview the result during import.

  • Users can fine-tune the display of metrics, with advanced data modeling capabilities allowing users to change currencies and formats, compare multiple metrics on the same graph, choose between average and total values, switch between hourly and daily graphs, and more.

  • The datawall designer allows users to create custom datawalls with different colors, backgrounds, and logos, configure access permissions, and restrict IP addresses, all without requiring code.

  • Users are kept up-to-date with metrics and changes by daily scorecards which are delivered at the user’s preferred time, weekly summaries which include the metrics users are most interested in, and alerts for any sudden changes or emerging trends.

  • Weekly summaries and daily scorecards can be customized, individual datacards can be created and assigned, and personalized alerts can be set up for each team member.

    Databox saves a lot of time when you need to present multiple reports as you can just do that by creating a template and just changing the date range as and when required.

    Pros

    Databox reporting tool makes your life easy as it has a simple drag and drop interface to generate reports. It also has option to use predefined templates that make it easy for you to create reports from scratch. Databox tool links with multiple datasource and also allows you to create custom formulas and metrics to be used in the reporting.

    Cons

    There is a lag in the data numbers to get updated. There should be an option to set up the refresh interval manually as per the convenience.

    Overall, It's very friendly to use, especially the way to organize templates to share across client accounts, create alerts, and native integrations with the most used platforms. A Big shoutout to the support team, which is responsive and ALWAYS resolves my questions/issues

    Pros

    I love to centralize the KPIs in one place. While running campaigns through multiple platforms, Databox helps to create and calculate metrics to summarize all impressions, metrics, conversions, spending, etc. I am showing data in a fancy and easy way to monitor the metrics' performance.

    Cons

    I've noticed some glitches. 1) After data is updated automatically, sometimes the dashboard doesn't seem to be updated, and to get the data updated, I need to change the date range and get back to the previous date range. 2) In the table settings >> multiple metrics can't sort based on the metric only manually; it would be great to sort dynamically ascending or descending3) I can't view log changes, Ex. If another college works on the same board, I can't see my changes vs. theirs.

    Databox: Close, but no cigar...or even cigarillo ...

    Reviewed on 24/2/2018

    Pros

    I work as the Director of Marketing Strategy at DD, which is an inbound marketing agency that services nonprofits and higher education institutions. We're a HubSpot certified partner agency and we were looking to Databox to help us make our client reports quicker, more interactive, and more robust. Databox's clean user-interface makes it really easy to notice trends...it also updates in almost real-time (if not real-time) which is helpful. The customizable dashboards are helpful as well...and there's no doubt that this tool is affordable to agencies like DD who need to report on a wide variety of metrics for 20+ accounts.

    Cons

    While there are definitely some pros to Databox, there are also some key features that they are missing. For example, you can't customize date ranges for reports. You have to choose from a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis...but you can't choose "Feb. 3 2017 - Feb. 23 2018" for example. This makes reporting very challenging if, for example, you start an inbound engagement with a client during the middle of the year and want to report on 6 month efforts and 12 month efforts that don't align perfectly with the Jan - Dec calendar year. Additionally, while the user-interface is clean, it's almost TOO white...our clients have found it really difficult to discern between traffic sources and points in time.

    All of this is to say, I'm highly skeptical of reporting tools that don't let you customize the date and time of your reports...While Databox looks like 2018, it functions like 2010. We have cancelled our services as of now, but I have written emails and social posts to their product team and have encouraged them to "fix" the product and then come sell it to me again...

    Robust Reporting Platform

    Reviewed on 28/8/2021

    Pros

    Databox is highly customizable, allowing for white-labeling, custom reporting, and and offers a wide selection of native datasources that you can sync with out-of-the box.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, their customer service can be a bit slow to respond to requests.

    Also, for more manual reports that utilize lots of texts and screenshots, there isn't much customization available to format text and images. This can make for reports that don't look great.

    I liked Databox while I used it. It's not a BI tool by any means but it does have a few options to allow you to transform your data. They also have some cool options for tracking goals and the mobile app is leaps and bounds better than the competition.

    Pros

    The visuals look awesome on the computer, TV, and phone. I was impressed with how easy it was to create a metric.

    Cons

    Once the metrics are on the dashboard there isn't much else you can do with them. It lacks some of the basic functionality that I'd expect such as dragging to zoom into a certain section of the chart or even hovering over the comparison line to see the exact value.
