Databox is a Mobile Business Analytics platform for Analysts, CEOs, and decision makers that need quick and easy access to their data.
The user interface is clean and intuitive.
Inability to link boards or drill down makes the tool less dynamic but we can work around it.
When we evaluated the various dashboarding offerings on the market, Databox represented the best value for the money, with one of the largest out-of-the-box integration libraries. Do as we did — evaluate a short-list of vendors and pick the one that works best for your needs, your budget, and your staff. I think you'll agree Databox is excellent value.
We needed a single dashboard interface that would allow us to roll up metrics (Content Downloads, Free Trials, Demos, Website Visits, Email Opens, Social Media Engagement, etc.) from a variety of technology stack components (Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Marketing Automation, Review Sites, Remarketing, CRM, etc.) and distribute the metrics for review by key company stakeholders. Using Databox, we've managed to share Marketing's progress, without additional investment in seat licenses for our technology components (i.e. CRM) for regular review, discussion, and ongoing optimization of our programs and target outcomes. The organization is aligned across all departments, and we can track our progress in real-time rather than after-the-fact when it's too late.
I've used a few business intelligence tools that cost tens of thousands of dollars, but Databox is able to satisfy the needs my small business requires at the fraction of that cost - even free. We currently need to watch our performance on a few platforms and with Databox, we are able to do just this. We intend to add more platforms in the future. Databox already supports these platforms so we know this wouldn't be a problem when it's time to scale
I still can't find anything about Databox that I dislike. I recently introduced it to my team at RegDesk, and it's super convenient to build and use
If you use several tools to capture data but you want a simple dashboard where you can view all your KPIs on the move, on desktop and tablet, Databox is the tool to use.
As a small business, we use several tools, but we also want to be able to view reports in one place. Databox makes this all possible at an awesome price. The ability to carry our analytics on the go. Presenting marketing reports have become a breeze. And the fact that we can scale as we grow or require more is simply awesome.
I like the customisability and the simplicity in adding connectors and showing their data. It's really impressive that it took me about 30min's from i signup to everything was up and running. The system really proves that its a must have tool for all startups without a system in place and with ambition to reach a new high. And if you already have such a tool, but this is a cheaper option or solves the purpose betterit takes tops a few hours to setup, so its not even a big investment to get it up and running.
I think its a bit to complicated to make my own data connectors
I would try it out, with the 3 data connections and see how well it works for you and your team. For us it turned out it was really easy to solve all the problems that we had with collecting data.
We are solving a key problem, that being able to follow up on how we are performing in all possible ways, and have that great look into how the business is running, in all apspects. And they way to stream all our data into one board
It's incredibly easy to set up, looks great and gives you real time overview of your performance and goals. I love that the app gives you east access of the data on your smartphone.
Some important KPIs cannot be tracked, such as Twitter impressions and Twitter ads data. It does not have integration with Salesforce and some other major CRMs. I was especially reserved about not having a Salesforce integration, as this is a CRM that we have recently switched to and it's sort of a fix now, we cannot change it and track progress in this tool, which is unfortunate.
Take time to think about what you need info on and choose exactly the info your company needs to track. The tool has a lot of options for tracking all sorts of data and set up a lot of info that would not always be useful to look at - make sure at setup to reach after the data that is useful and stick to it. Additionally, the trends and average functions would help you be able to overview how you compare to previous performance and the industry average.
Reporting becomes a lot easier and management have access to progress reports real time. We want to minimise the time we spend on meetings and reporting and this tool easily does that for us. Partners are able to access dashboards through their phones and monitor progress real time.
Databox is great in that it is not only simple to setup but it's affordable. After trying out a wide range of other options, finding a solution that is both easy AND priced right is a big win for someone like me who works in limited marketing resources.
My only minor complaint is the lack of integrations. Obviously this will continue to improve, but they still have a ways to go with adding more before this will be widely useable for everyone.
Try it out with the free plan first to get the hang of it and see if the integrations you need work as expected.
The main thing this has helped our business with is being able to cut through the data analytics noise. There are too many platforms with too much data to make sense of it all. Databox has brought all the key metrics into one place with a well designed look.
I haven't signed up for the paid version -- yet. Only used the free product, and have found it very impressive for what it offers. I can gather a pretty good set of KPIs from readily available sources. My team can each set up their own databoards, concentrating on what they need to know. It's nice on the eye as well.
The only issue I have, which I don't know whether it's addressed in the paid version, is being largely limited to data from "last 7 days" and "last 30 days" -- with the occasional 14D and MTD windows. No quarterly, six month, this year, last year data. What I'm referring to are the dropdowns in the individual KPIs. It does seem, however, that the "Goals" feature supports some version of historical data, but I haven't used it, so can't comment on that.
Seriously consider the paid version if you have custom data sources.
Having a lot of what I need to know in one place so I can daily track specific KPIs in an easy-to-use, all-in-one package app. I look forward to hooking up our custom data sources so I'll have *everything* I need.
Databox is quite efficient and effective platform. Very easy to use and track all of the daily, weekly or monthly KPI's in one place. Analytics, Adwords, social, sales, content at one place gives me flexibility and enough hours to stay focused in getting those numbers correct and as per targets. Almost all connections available for a eCommerce guru like me. The databox team have nailed it by making my Life easier. I am in Love with this tool and started loving my JOB.
There is nothing to hate. There is just LOVE for databox. So what I am writing here is just a request that I need. Free to Paid costing is alot for me. They should provide atleast 1/4 of the pricing what they have listed. The reports color, graphs and customization should have been very easy for business users so they can run this intelligent tool without informing their managers that how and what do they track.
I monitor all the KPI's of the organization and steers my team into the right directions to get the right numbers. Databox have solved my data tracking issue at one place.
You can easily integrate a lot of services to have a "bird view" of your online business.
For instance, like to connect PayPal, Google Analytics and Facebook Ads to have a quick view of my incoming transactions and expenses. Comparing them to my Analytics Goals helps me to quickly understand my ROI.
It would be nice to have a free version with 4-5 connectors: this will help new customers to get confident with DataBox within a longer period of time.
If you are looking for a Business Intelligence DashBoard with a lot of connectors, I think DataBox have the most wide selection available.
Price is a bit over the standard, but you can consider it if you need many connectors in one place.
As I said before, you can quickly have a "bird view" of your ROI on Ads and SEO.
The ability to create & store template KPI report data walls that can be shared with client accounts to save time in generating reports.
The insight wall and alert function also save us a lot of time not having to review the boards and set the rules on which KPI's to be alerted on at certain levels bot positive or negative swings around a goal
Initially, there were bugs with some data cards when you created, so you had to sometimes rebuild reports to get the correct information. However, this has become less frequent, so seems to have been resolved.
I would make use of the templates in the template gallery - this gives a great starting point with the tool. Also, invest some time in getting acquainted with the query builder tool - this enables you to basically report on almost anything from google analytics, facebook ads and hubspot
Databox has solved essentially two problems for us
1) Helped Reduced our non-billable hours used to collect, collate and prepare monthly reports with screenshots to form multiple software tools. We now have more billable hours available.
2) Improved our internal team communication as with databox dashboards the whole team has access to insights to client campaigns without having to be a specific software tool expert or waiting for our internal meetings to be updated - our reaction to campaign insights is quicker an ultimately helps us add more value to
First off, Databox is quite easy to use with a good number of relevant data/service connections that would serve most businesses. Most likely if you were to look for deep data analysis, better to build that in-house and/or utilize a company that does large enterprise accounts.
Slack integration is great for our team. Makes pulling of data simple and quick.
The interface is more or less friendly to use regardless of company department. The customizable features for the databoards is very nice to have especially when we need to do report-specific analytics for our internal performance tracking.
The pricing is quite high for basic relative to what is given. I honestly believe that for Basic pricing, it would be ideal to get 20 connections and 20 databoards, and also query builder included. I can see the high value for the query builder, so maybe that can be limited as well i.e. 20 queries etc. If I have to be nitpicky there are a few connections I wish it included, so hopefully they'll be including more connections in the future.
Databox is fantastic if you're already using the variety of connections that they've set up already. Good news is that most of those connections are what a lot of companies are already using. Best to check if your company is utilizing those connections before paying for the service.
Overall the product is great and really helps us visualize the data we need on a weekly and monthly basis.
For now we have the following that we are trying to solve:
-internal performance tracking and reporting
-immediate pulling of relevant data for stakeholders
Databox has a large number of integrations with most of the apps used in sales, marketing and customer service. It's extremely easy to set them up and start pulling data for your dashboards and other reports. The power of doing this is that you get instantaneous views of all of your KPIs and you can customize them to include the most relevant from multiple data sources. This makes analyzing data much easier and a better for coming up with insights. I also really like the notifications and alerts based on goals and thresholds. This keeps you and your team accountable and aware as your efforts yield results or encounter challenges. That enables faster and more flexible response that can turn things around quickly and save both time and money.
There isn't much to dislike. From an agency point of view, Databox is working on custom reporting that would allow you to engage more directly in dashboards with text and graphics. When that capability matures, the tool will be a Godsend for agencies developing monthly or ad hoc reports for their clients.
Check out the free trial and use the extensive library of templates to get you started.
Monitoring and analyzing sales and marketing data that enables flexible strategic adjustments on a much more timely basis than looking at snapshots once a month. This translates into more efficient use of manpower and budget and also enables faster growth.
All-In-One Reporting tool for SaaS. Super easy to get started and integrate. Data is normalized between data sets. The company leadership is focussed on user input. Strong commitment by full team to be helpful and go the final mile with you. The company is not focussed on selling the product. Their focus is having a product and having the user base get outcomes. It's not about quants. It's about improving action from reporting. So that cultural note is pretty important because this type of product is normally about features and not the true purpose.
The only thing I would like is more flexibility in the colors of the reports. I wish I could style them with CSS. Not a real big deal at this point and I haven't even let them know it. I'm pretty sure if I made the case they'd adjust if it made sense.
It's free to try so try it. Perfect for anyone but especially those consulting on scale and advising on key metrics routinely with performance check-ins.
Can't stand all the logging in and out of various SaaS products to "cut and paste" reporting. So this saves time. It keeps us plugged into the success of any team we work with. Real Time, templated data sets, and mashups from various SaaS products and point and click integrations make it all happen.
It's simple, elegant, smooth and so far i've seen the best one out there. Why? Well first of all the function that you can "rotate" multiple dashboards on 1 single screen. Most competitors offer 1 screen that you have to change manual. But seeying the same (static in many cases) data for 8 hours on the same screen is kind of useless. Databox nailed it by making it possible to show multiple "dashboards" over time. I would definitly recommend it to any small/medium and even large compagnies. You can utilize it in so many ways. This exceeds the "data guy only" insights. With Databox the "data guy" can make things visual so easy for a full team/presentation or whatever. I'm in love!
From free to payed is a step from 0 to 1000. I would rather like to see a step from 0 to 250 or might even 0 to 500. Don't get me wrong, even their free account is superb. But for a small company the step from 0 to 1000 a year is pretty big.
Try it. Can't say anything else. Just try it, it's a data playground for grownups.
One centralized place. Easy to manage metric. So we solved having to login to multiple accounts with multiple "viewports" with multiple settings etc etc. It took away a big headache.
Databox is fantastic at giving me one central point of reporting across multiple services. It's even better at enabling my agency to expedite client reporting and spend more time analyzing data instead of just compiling it.
One of the best things about it is the number of applications they integrate with. We use it for our clients, and we can finally pull in information from multiple systems quickly and make changes based on that. It also allows for new types of reporting that previously required a whole lot of excel mashups. We can track ad performance next to our CRM pipeline of deals from that source to a get a full picture of how things are being affected.
Not much to dislike. The team is really quick at adding new data sources and taking metric requests.
Definitely start a trial. Connect as many data sources as you can, and pull in some templates to quickly see how it can help. Then, try having a monthly meeting using only databox instead of switching between services. You'll suddenly realize how much more efficient you can be with one reporting solution.
Centralized Reporting is now much, much easier. I don't have to pull from a bunch of different systems to get a high-level report. I can spend more time analyzing data and less time pulling it together.
As a bootstrapped startup, I love being able to have a one-stop shop for all my metrics. We use them to let us know if we're spending our time and efforts in the right places!
I have a vertical screen (portrait orientation) that I like to display metrics on. Wish I could design for that!
Take the time to setup everything the right way. If you are (or have access to) a dev team, make sure you implement all the APIs you need. For most, the out of the box reporting and integrations will be plenty.
Our startup, Omatum, is trying to tackle big problems in software. To validate our larger software PM product, we're validating with several consumerized micro-apps. Databox allows us to see metrics across these many different apps in one spot. Solves for messy reporting.
The system is very easy to connect multiple data sources together and is very intuitive to use. I've tested other visualisation platforms and dashboard programs and it is fairly safe to say that Databox has been the smoothest from the get go.
Honestly, I think the pricing is not compelling enough for most earlier stage companies. The dashboards are a nice to have and it becomes a much harder proposition for the budget when a tool is a nice to have. The difference between free to the next tier ($60) is significant enough that there are other tools I'd rather spend $720 on. I dislike that there is no native Google Sheets connector which forces me to use Zapier as a stop gap measure.
Check out the integrations and make sure it covers what you need. In our case, all of the major integrations we needed are included but it only includes 3 data connectors on the free plan so keep that in mind. We also use Zapier to connect custom data tracking sheets (like Google Sheets) to send data back and forth.
Trying to get more attention on the KPI's we have as a company and not relying on the old google sheets practice most startups rely on. The KPI's are definitely out there for everyone to see now which is great and people are taking an active interest in what is going on.
Ease of use, flexibility and just how fundamentally useul are the starting points. It saves so much time, gives you access to the numbers that matter and you can get an immediate snapshot of all your campaigns in one place. Going back to Google Analytics is a little painful after you've experienced Databox.
I honestly haven't found anything I "dislike" yet.
When you have a lot of data coming in from multiple campaigns it's very easy to miss key signals that you need to make adjustments. Databox solves that. The biggest problem solver for me personally is the visible access to the data points and KPI's that matter to each specific campaign.
I like that I can view all of my analytics in one location. I also like that the mobile app contains everything that the web version does. Poorly designed and non-data driven mobile apps is my number 1 reason for cancelling an app subscription.
I don't like that some of the social feeds are limited. For instance, I do not market through my company LinkedIn page, because people don't buy from companies, they buy from people. I market through my personal LinkedIn. However Databox doesn't allow my personal account to be the primary source of data.
We wanted to be able to quantify our results; being able to put hard numbers to what we say has helped us immensely.
The platform is set up in a way that makes it very easy to connect your various data points before then building out your very own customized data walls and mobile reports.
It can be a little daunting starting your first few data walls and mobile reports. The building can be a bit overwhelming so someone who hasn't had a lot of time training and poking around in it.
These guys are just getting up and running and are hungry to grow their market share. They're very helpful during the sales and implementation process and have heard and implemented a number of things we've suggested to them in terms of product improvements.
While not adding any more reporting functionality than most any of your other platforms that have reporting included, Data Box does an incredible job taking all of that data and building out an integrated report to showcase how everything is connected and affecting each other. We've been able to finally pull in marketing, sales and customer service information all into one place and visualize it in a way that works for the different members of our team in an automated fashion! No more manual report generation for us!
I love all the different metrics this can track and the integrations. The dashboard is fully customizable and the ability to share & view on mobile phones is great! The integration with Zapier takes a little to understand it, but their support team setup an online meeting with me and walked me through the steps.
It would be great if we could embed the dashboard on our own sites. Not a deal breaker, but just a nice feature. Also, the connection with Zapier is a little cumbersome, but again the support was there to help me out.
Right now I needed a live leaderboard with some different metrics, and this provides it for me.
Easy implementation, all KPIs on one screen and super mobile app. It really helps us to improve our work and stay focused.
We need more than 3 connectors, so we can not use free plan any more.
Just start using it and start focusing on your goals.
1. Data visualization
2. Focus on our goals
3. Save time (money) on reports
4. Better customer support (we seen all our tickets, time spend, all statistics on closing tickets)
5. Access to all needed data and reports by phone, with only one app
6. Increasing motivation - our marketing and sales dept have know how successful are they, all the time
7. Saving money - it is easy to add new sources
The ability to connect multiple data sources to a single portal and build out a dashboard of data modules specific to my needs has been a real game changer for our agency. Additionally, the ability to enter goals and perform calculations between metrics is a huge opportunity for us to level up our reporting.
The designer interface is a little confusing at first, but was pretty easy to manipulate and maneuver once I got a good lay of the land.
Databox is absolutely doing it right. They understand the critical pain points in capturing and arranging data in a way that valuable insights can be extrapolated. And the pace at which they've been tackling new functionalities that continue to add value to the product is impressive!
To date, our monthly, quarterly, and annual campaign reporting has been an incredibly manual process. And the output we've included in our reports hasn't always provided actionable insights or groundbreaking optics. This is an opportunity to change that!
Sure I could be looking at this on my own Google analytics dashboard, but it brings in everything I need all at once, at a glance. If it's not a day where I intend to spend time looking at certain pieces of data, I love that I still have the peace of mind knowing how my topline numbers look. I love aggregation services, and this is comprehensive and advanced.
I don't think it's incredibly simple to set up for you average user, but I feel very comfortable with technology and I found it intuitive. I can imagine a less-advanced user asking for assistance in setting up a Datacard or Datawall, and then sending it out to people they'd like to inform, as a nice concise data report. But I personally find the drag and drop and fill in the blanks set up a great way to decide what data you want to see.
Give it your all during the free trial, and set yourself up for success, to understand what it is you want out of the service, as some things are only available on higher up plans. If you're willing to spend the money, you're in for great things.
Too much data in too many places and a difficult time using it to tell a story. I think it helps me visualize the story I'm trying to send. I'm a storyteller, and I often have a hard time with numbers and been analytical and data-minded. I think this helps keep me familiar with the numbers most important to me by keeping my narrative up to date and in my face, with their morning push notification of my updated datacard!
1. Databox is really easy to use and get started, meaning that you don't need to be Stephen Hawking to start visualizing your data and making good business decisions. But that doesn't mean that it lacks power. We've built large data walls using a large number of sources and it works perfectly. And with some of the new query tools, we have even more options.
2. Databox is constantly improving the system. There have been a few times when we needed a feature and they listened to our requirements and added the feature. You don't see a lot of that nowadays.
3. The team there is really helpful and really positive. It's a pleasure to work with them and they make you feel like you are part of their team.
We've don't have a lot to dislike as we are standardizing on them. This industry is in its infancy and the technology is changing fast, so if you are not comfortable in that environment, you may consider that a dislike. But for us, this is not an issue at all.
They have an arsenal of webinars that are awesome. Watch them and don't be afraid to fiddle.
They help us take a large amount of data from different systems and make it visible and actionable for our clients. This helps both us and our clients make better decisions which helps ROI. It's a pretty simple and powerful value prop.
The best thing is they are still working at the app and they have new tools on tests. I used Data Calculation for free and was something new. I like when an app is in a continuos develop.
Very easy to use. I use Hubspot as a CRM for my company and was easy to integrate databox - hubspot. Easy to connect
The Customer Support was quick and easy, they tried to help with my problems.
I have some problems with data ranges. Databox doesn't show me exact data from my hubspot account but with support from them, I think we can resolve it. They told me the problem goes to they developers and they will resolve it.
My company looked for a tool who can be easily integrate with Hubspot and give us clear reports. I use databox for reports with connection with Hubspot / Analytics / MailChimp. In the future i want to see the connection with Zapier to integrate Excel in Databox.
Is nice they have API to put custom data, i didn't use it for now but i want to do it in the future.
As a small company, DataBox allows us to quickly review our KPI's for GA, Google Ads, Bing Ads, Hubspot, etc. With minimal effort, we can check the health of our business.
The only dislike is that you need SaleForce Enterprise to view SalesForce metrics and we have SF Professional.
Give it a try and you'll find yourself feeling much more aware of being plugged into the health of your business.
The biggest benefits are that we can quickly see Hubspot and Google/Bing PPC metrics which allows us to better understand what our agency is doing for us and the impact it has on our business.
Databox's platform makes it VERY easy to integrate multiple data platforms into single dashboards. As long as they have a supported integration in place, setting up the data connections pretty easy. Also, the interface is very clean and well organized -- it is easy to find what you're looking for and the data visualization is very pleasing to the eye. There is also plenty of customization for any metrics via query builder.
Not enough customization for pricing plans. Query builder can be a bit fiddly as well (for example, if you don't set up a filtered metric in the right way, it may not appear as expected in the databoards/dashboards-- there may be some trial and error involved).
Try the software first! The trial is great and allows full access to data connections and databoards.
Integrate marketing reporting into one platform that can be shared. Databox allows us to have one source of truth for all marketing analytics.
Databox was very easy to connect to my data sources and easy to configure the dashboard. I have only tested integrations with Hubspot and Google Adwords and analytics.
Make sure you upgrade in time - somehow I lost a dashboard. I would like to have more regular update in the free plan.
Always decide in advance what you are trying to achieve
I provide weekly reports and being able to share the up to date data view a link has saved me a lot of time. You can share the report via a link, that allows the recipient to choose a date range that is appropriate to them.
Databox's data visualizations are beautiful and unlike any other tool we've seen, and it allow for a nice level of customization. It also offers deep integrations with a number of the technologies we use to run client marketing campaigns. Another feature that makes life very easy is how seamless it is to present data on a desktop and mobile without much if any work on our end.
The company is growing quickly, and new features are regularly rolled out and every now and again there is a bug in the presentation. That said, Databox's customer service is fast to respond and react. If needed, a fix made quickly.
We use Databox to present marketing campaign performance data to clients. It allowed us to do away with PowerPoint presentations, and offer data and insights in one pleasing and uniform manner.
I really like the interface and the app is super simple to setup. They are constantly adding new integrations. However, If you are looking for a Google Analytics app that includes Social Media metrics, this is the best choice.
Nothing much. It works how I expected and if I need their customer support, they reply in very short time.
I run a lot of growth experiments. I used to log in to all services, with Databox I have all important metrics in one place. That saves me a lot of time. Consequently, I can focus how to improve results.
Databox lets me mix together multiple data sources to keep track of activities happening across our clients' marketing and sales funnels. When we start a project and establish KPIs, I also set up internal and client-facing dashboards to track these measures and ensure that we are looking at the same information.
There are a lot of "hidden" features and capabilities that can be hard to learn.
Plan to spend time understanding how existing templates and widgets work before creating your own. This will help you design better dashboards and widgets.
We are able to get better and faster insights for our clients and ensure that we are all looking at the same information at the same time. This helps speed decisions and eliminates guesswork.
It is so easy to set up Powerful Dashboards in minutes because of multiple templates helping you to represent any activity in an easy and clear way!
Very valuable for team leaders to take quick and efficient decisions and to teams to track their activity and progress compared to team mates...
Nothing to say it is way better than all the dashboards tried before!
Great and Easy to use !
It helped a lot to make the team concentrate on their work while the manager monitor the activity easily and take the decisions according to the current and future situations.
Flexibility in building dashboards that are both mobile and laptop friendly.
Pricepoint is too high for small startups. Also would like to see shareable library of examples from others.
Give it a shot. It's worth the effort to setup at least your trial account. But focus on KPIs and let your other dashboards take care of the rest.
Daily review of KPIs from Google Analytics. Still early to say, but very handy views of metrics we care about the most. They have a lot more connectors to what I don't use, so options being provided to customers is very comprehensive, especially option to connect to MySQL and Postgresql databases.
The visual design is gorgeous. Creating and modifying the dashboards is relatively intuitive and easy enough with the grid system.
I really wish it were easier to get to the RIGHT information. The trouble with having so many possible data points makes the process very daunting at times.
Take the time to go through the onboarding process and definitely start with a couple different templates that get you in the right direction. I found it easy to start with a template and then modify from there.
Getting a snapshot of our stats in one central location is all we really wanted, and that's exactly what we got.
The easy that is to set up your dashboards
hmmm, well more documentation for custom dashboard that are not in the template page
If you are planning to provide visualization to your clients don't spend much time developing it your self using databox help me to provide state of the art dashboard to my clients as easy of a couple of days
providing data visualization to my clients, with databox I don't have to think about building my own interface
I like DATABOX because it is great to have all the important indicators and metrics from social media and Google Analytics in one place. It also provides me with an insight into impact from Facebook (social media) promotions, on sales and on website and blog visitors. I also very much like the design.
There is not much to dislike. In the beginning, I needed a few hours to set everything up and figured out how it works, because there are so many different options. But once you master it, it is very easy to use.
It helps you visualize your data, gives you all the data you need in one place (daily, weekly, monthly and yearly), helps increase your sales numbers and motivates you to focus on your goals.
I loved the large number of integrations that you could put together. Also, the fact that you easily build visualizations off of current data points and get historical information was a plus. I like the mobile app, the goal tracking, and the daily alerts as well.
I didn't like that I couldn't select date ranges of YTD in most of the widgets. I only had options focused on the month or last 30 days.
Easy heads-up display of data with a super robust set of integrations.
I'm able to mash up my Google analytics with our Stripe account so I can get a full view of our funnel, from traffic to trial to activation all in one snapshot. Our investors love this and it helps keep our team on track.
At first, the user interface was a little overwhelming. But after some trial and error, I got the hang of it.
Before, we had to look at 2-3 different datasources and put them into a spreadsheet manually. Now we can see our business performance by opening the shareable link to our dashboard!
Our CRM system lacked clear presentation of our key metrics and Databox enabled us to display these in an orderly fashion. The extra add-ons such as integration with Google Analytics is a nice surprise.
Furthermore, you can use it to easily send updates with your KPIs to your investors on a daily basis.
Nothing really. It works how I want it to and the customer support is very quick if I do need it.
Easy to use.
Overview of metrics from different services.
Nice tool to send updates with.
I love the minimal design, the ability to connect multiple sources and have them on the same dashboard. Their existing widgets are really the ones you need, but I can create custom ones if I want, which is great. Overall, a very responsive experience!
Sometimes the app can be a bit buggy (like when I'm trying to update a time period, I have to play with it a little for certain widgets). There's a set grid you can put your widgets in, but it would be a bit easier if there were more squares, as sometimes widgets get too small.
I use it to keep track of my Marketing metrics, and to show the team well performing web pages, CTA clicks, and LinkedIn followers.
- Ease of Use
- Incredible support
Nothing really. Although some features may be missing, the team is always working on adding them & growing the product.
Don't be shy to ask specific questions to the support team. They reply almost instantly & provide step-by-step guidance.
Data visualisation. We have been able to extract data from platforms that were of no use before, and display them in a meaningful way.
I love the fact that we can quickly see both our agency analytics and our clients' analytics via Databox's mobile dashboards. The ease-of-use makes it realistic to be checking the data on a daily basis. The Datawalls also make it easy to provide our clients with real-time reports.
Overall, we're very pleased with the product and support!
Databox allows us to more efficiently review and report on our clients' analytics which makes our sales and marketing programs more effective because we can focus on continuous improvement.
Databox is a cut above the rest when it comes to the visualization of data. I've tried a number of products in this category and can confidently say that from a design perspective they are the leading age. The integrations they have and are building towards and also very strong. I've connected Hubspot as well as Google Sheets (via Zapier) and am very pleased with the results.
Not a native Google Sheets integrations. Having to connect through Zapier was a bit of a pain, but the team at Databox went well beyond expectations to help with the connections.
Don't hesitate to reach out to the team at Databox if you are struggling with implementation. They are incredible with their level of support and will get you to your desired results in very short order. The product is visually appealing and has native integrations with many platforms. Excited to see where Databox goes.
Getting strong visualizations of data that are accessible both on mobile and web.
I liked having an updated data snapshot of campaign performance across all channels. This stopped the need to visit each marketing platform to overview.
And allowed me to identify quickly any channel that required closer inspection.
The only thing that I didn't like was that a user can be sometimes limited to the amount of information that can be shown in a single dashboard. I personally would prefer to have all the information to appear within a single view, even if I have to scroll down a little.
However I realise that these dashboards are most likely to be shown on large TV screens within agencies or businesses.
Having all the information compiled into a single dashboard allows for easy reporting and negates the need to manually capture the details of each data segment to create the visualisation. Now the time can be spent analyising the results and providing clear direction to a client on the next steps in their marketing campaign
Visual representation of data makes it much easier to have conversations with clients about their results.
The Databox team is always making updates to include new features or meet requests of users. If I ever have something I don't like, I just submit it to them and it is often changed or fixed!
Start from the template library. It makes setup much easier.
This helps a lot with catching misconfigurations and aiding in conversations about results with clients.
Onboarding takes a couple of minutes. Once you connect data sources you can have useful dashboards in seconds. Daily scorecards are great
A few bugs: notifications not arriving, slackbot down
Improvements: scorecard colour coding shows green when negative kpis increase and i don't think you can change this. You can not do calculations using data from 2 sources despite what FAQ says
Dashboards to share with rest of team
The ability to easily show data, to segment data properly, and to organize everything well. LOVE this!!
The zapier integration was a bit complicated to set up and not intuitive, i.e. entering the "|" character to separate title fields as well as needing to push a value w/no title field + a separate value with all title fields, taking up two zap steps, is unnecessary and should be simplified. But once this is solved, the software is AMAZING. All-time.
Incredible data visualization platform with fair pricing and amazing featureset.
Visualizing all the data we're getting from multiple sources. Amazing, incredible product.
Integration with Hubspot is great. This tool also let's us get more technical than the other dashboard tools. We are not limited to just a few "widgets" of data.
Not a huge fan of having to pay for the enterprise plan to get real time information. However, For the price, I can deal with just hourly refreshes. I also wish there was a little more flexibility when it comes to adding graphics or videos to the dashboards.
It has been really easy to setup KPIs that our sales and marketing team can follow quickly and easily. The increased transparency of having it up on a monitor has helped during tough sales conversations.
As a sales manager, I need to be able to keep track of my team's daily, weekly, monthly, and annual sales performance and activity. I'm using HSCRM and Databox makes it easy to visualize the most important metrics from my phone or browser.
The product is always improving but sometimes there are slight delays in the refresh.
Databox has a generous free plan to help you eliminate using spreadsheets and powerpoint for monthly reports.
My reporting has always been manual and taken a lot of time. Databox has helped me automate my monthly sales reporting so I can spend more time analyzing the data instead of pulling together numbers into spreadsheets.
i have used many data analytics tools over the years, and Databox is hands down one of the best. Its mobile app is really user friendly and integrates well with slack. Its easy to set up and great for small to medium size marketing teams, but could also be projected on tv screens for larger teams to monitor progress.
i have a lot of small ad accounts, so i hit the 10 account limit pretty fast on the lowest plan, would love to have a way to add more integrations only without upgrading to the next tier.
monitoring of campaign performance and business in a timely manner. being able to check vital stats anytime, anywhere.
It's extremely helpful to be able to pull data from multiple sources into one system. For example, we might use Hubspot, Google Analytics, and Facebook data. Being able to report on data from all of those in one place saves time and navigating around different sources. In addition, the templates make it easy to start using right away.
I haven't been using Databox long, but I had an issue with accounts staying connected - while they were initially connected, something happened when I was done setting up databoards.
This saves time and resources by being able to set up a link to the report, as it's continuously pulling data.
It provides all key data you would need from your website when you are not in front of a computer.
Lack of customization in the daily cards (either that or hard to navigate) I still haven't figured out how to look at cards other than the 1 domain they provide it on.
I primarily enjoy getting daily cards with actionable data on my websites so we can take actions based on the daily reports.
I love the ease of use with connecting to data sources and displaying via a URL to a separate screen. The ability to view pre-created templates is helpful as well.
I would prefer a bit more color by default, and only 3 options for data sources in the free version is a bit limited for us, but probably not for others. I would also like to see google sheets added as a data source.
We wanted to visualize our impact data on a screen in our office that is running a Amazon Fire TV. Through another 3rd party app we were able to add the URL's from Databox easily!
The best part about DATABOX vs other services is that this provides exactly what I require, most of the things are very easy to configure and mobile app provides data on the go.
I would have loved more connectors in the free plan.
I am accessing data on the go and it helps me correct trouble areas as soon as I feel something needs my attention.
I like being able to keep track of all of my data on one mobile app from multiple sources.
Accessing account settings via mobile is a bit wonky- can't really do it from the mobile app at all
Just keeping track of things at a glance is nice. I like the daily and weekly updates feature.
So many tracking options and then, the the automated mail to get an additional tracker in the free version. I mean, I can practically sell it for them.
three tracker limit, comparative metrics
Go on, its easier than making tea!
Helps me manage team and perform agile cycles efficiently
Was attracted by the good looking scorecards of Databox - they give an instant overview of how our company is doing on various platforms, including Mailchimp, LinkedIn and Google Analytics.
Databox supplies all the metrics on one single source
I love using Zapier and automating many of my tasks. The ability to easily integrate with Zapier is great!
I have not came across anything that I dislike about the functionality of this product. Perhaps the monthly cost is an expense that my business can not afford, but having the free tier is amazing!
The abilty to visualize my sales data.
The attractive dashboards that are easy to create from templates. The range of data connections is impressive too.
Not a lot to dislike. It would be nice if you could connect more than one data point at a time.
Agency reporting - getting info to our clients quickly and with less work on our part.
Simplicity of connecting to new data sources.
For some integrations (e.g. Teamwork Projects), it requires a separate view for each project vs. a view across all projects.
Confirm the integrations you need are available.
Quick and simplified views of critical business data.
tailored dashboards were great. It is quick and easy to set up and so customizable.
it rounds up numbers and I am not sure how to make some of the points more exact. I am sure there is a way though.
sales forecasting and employee KPI tracking
The new goal-setting features are quite nice. The design is professional.
Seems like there's a learning curve to get past and like it may take a while to dial in exactly what we want.
Goal and KPI tracking across multiple platforms and systems.
I've visited this app a few day ago but now I found it very useful for a number of my upcoming projects.Now I'm also start earning through it.I also recommending my friends/colleges to come on this site and let do some valueable designing.
On thing which I didn't like in databox is that it don't have an option of source code from where we can get the source code of our design and embed it wherever we want.
I am solving my problem of sorting data.
The flexibility of dashboards and the ease of linking programs to dashboards
Not much really, I would love to see more apps such as coinbase or being able to watch market stocks added to this
I would like to be able to watch my digital currencies such as bitcoin and litecoin implemented so i can watch and predict market growth etc
Growing instagram followers and watching traffic to my website to refine the process
Quick And Easy Integration & Customization , Great Usability
There is nothing I could dislike. I am satisfied.
Databox enables us to build a business value out of the tons of data we have.
Databox connects to all the services that I use. The connections are very easy to setup and all the "Deal info" comes over from Hubspot very easily.
I would have liked the Hubspot Contact info to come over also, but the contact info is restricted to whatever "smart lists" you define which is a workable solution.
A single place to see the key activity markers in my business.
ability to create your own dashboards - BI
Not much yet. Still implementing the BI functionality but the out of the box reports are great.
From basic all in one shop for analytics and marketing performance to business intelligence reporting (still implementing this). I guess we implemented less then 5% of the tool capabilities, but looking forward to do more.
Business intelligence, sales reports, google analytics and Mail chimp analytics.
Databox allows us to have all the important information we need from a range of multiple tools and is so easy to setup. Ive been looking for a platform like this for a long time and have finally found it!
Nothing yet! so far we love everything about it!
We have a visual on all our key metrics instead of having to retrieve them from multiple sources.
Templates that inside them widgets that can be customized.
Wish they had Freshdesk, I'm sure it's coming.
Ability to see revenue from multiple products we sell quickly and easily.
Databox solved all my problems with displaying info to the investors. Awesome service.
Free plan is for 3 data boards only, but actually it's quite alright for an early-stage startup.
Transparency for the current and future investors
The ability to manage multiple channels from a single app.
There isn't much that I dislike about DataBox but I would recommend for improvement, adding freedom of timeframe monitoring for instagram highest engagement etc. Beyond 30 days.
Read the guides on DataBox website
I can see all of my companies data without logging into every account separately and I can present that data quickly and visually without the trouble of creating Dashboards myself.
Our numbers are now dynamic showing percentage changes that help us better understand what's changing
More integrations with development applications so our commercial team can better understand the progress of the tech side of the application
The whole company can see the numbers and changes in marketing, sales, support and more. Helps everyone understand how the business is growing in a super clear way that drives everyone forward.
It's easy to use and intuitive, it took me about 3 hours from sign up to set my PipeDrive DataBoard.
I think if it had a live chat for support it would be much faster to do the onboarding.
Use the trial period to understando all the features that you need to choose the right plan
Data Analytics updated everyday from our sales team.
Slick interface, easy templates to get started, daily scorecards, intuitive app interface
Combining metrics from different sources in one databoard. It's possible because I've seen it in a template but haven't figured it out how to do it myself.
The use of templates gets you up and running quickly and interface is slick and intuitive
Creating overview and insight from different data sources
It is exactly what we were looking for. It is very easy to use, and gets the most important Metrics so you can check everything in one place, and jump to conclusions way faster!
I am missing a lower priced tier for startups focused on many metrics, but can't really afford $100.
Analytics is a bliss with this app. You have GA, FB ads, and shopify in one view.
Integrations with SQL Databases and a direct link with Google Adsense
Limited to the UI databox provides, not too many customization options
Visualising data from different sources
The out-of-the-box templates! I was able to get dashboards up and running the same day!
Nothing yet. Maybe, it would be nice to export dashboard to PDF for offline access in powerpoint. Not sure if this exists already.
Great app and mobile first is what our team needs
Real time analytics to our marketing and sales team
Easy to use - many other reporting software's I have tried are very complicated and couldn't achieve what I was looking for. Databox looks great, easy to understand and is beautiful to present to clients.
Hmmm, nothing really but it would be great if the Conversion Rate and Avg Pos metric arrows, when % or position has improved e.g. avg pos 1.1 is better than 3.1 that the arrows would show green not red because it is a positive change.
Great, useful, easy, reliable and presentable for reporting and analysis purposes.
Simple, quick and presentable reporting for AdWords clients.
I liked the system easy to use and understanding.
Should have more affordable plans for freelancers.
For analysis of my Kpis
The stock charts and number of integrations are great. The App is pretty slick too. Its fare more intuitive to use than a lot of other KPI Dashboards.
iTunes Connect Data for Subscriptions is lacking
Creating KPI Dashboards to make sure we're on track on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
I love being able to get to and transfer files from anywhere
Need more people to know about it .and being able to customize a few features yourself would be nice
Start deleting garbage from your phone and get Databox then before you even do anything it will already be starting to free up space and make your life easier .
The main thing , I do things fast and save time! This is my life , I am getting older now and don’t like waisting time.
che è possibile collegare diverse fonti di traffico e funzioni aziendali e riportarle in una dashboard
che le fonti di traffico sono limitate e potrebbero essere migliorate
seguire, controllare e analizzare traffico e attività per decidere azioni e interventi migliorativi
The idea of a canvas. It is fast and easy to create a dashboard. And with a couple of clicks you can share it.
I would need a functionality to export easily these charts to powerpoint.
The tools saves a lot of time preparing reports to each customer.
Easy to set up, beautiful to use. Turns our Stripe data into information in a much better way than Stripe itself.
As far as I have used it now (2 weeks) I didn't find anything to dislike yet
Visual business information & trend insight
I've been using Databox for just a couple of days and I think it's really good. Colour me impressed.
It's a bit expensive, I wish there was a middle step between the free and paid steps.
Making sure I'm aware of all the figures the matter
I specifically like the templates, so we don't have to do everything ourselves
The small number of databoards in the free account
Try the free version and see what works best for you
Overview of your online performance at a glance
Interface is perfect, an easy way to see all performance in one app
Limited management of data on favorites, should be able to specify exactly data to show to use one page with all interested data there
Used just to views a resume on ads performance
The templates with the commons channels that we use
lack of some niche data sources like real estate crms, leads management systems
Use it, even the free version is super useful
Visually simple but very functional at same time
Limited free version, it would be nice to connect all social media at once for example.
Reporting for me as Head of Marketing became much easier
I definitly fell in love with Databox. Exactly what I was looking for to get some great data vizualization.
Only 3 connectors free on forever free plan
It helps me get the data I care about in just one glance.
The design of the dashboard looks goed and it works awesome!
It would be even more awesome if i can get rid of the gradient in the background.
More motivation and insights in our goals. Both where realised.
Automated Analytics, Eagle Eye view Dashboard
I hope to have custom date range, i.e. two months, specific dates
Custom Date Range
Eliminate manual reporting and gathering of analytics.
The visual information is simple to understanding, clean and is free to 3 dashboard.
Litle Compicate to make a dashboard, data is all in english, better other lenguages.
The sexiest reporting software I've found. Everything else seems so bland in comparison.
learning curve to use can take a little bit.
Giving clients access to reports constantly.
The Integrations are well considered and having an open API will mean that we can continue to use Databox with new and custom data sources.
The free trial is limited to 2 data sources, this limits the initial testing functionality and cross reporting that is key in determining if Databox is the right platform.
Easy to access top level KPI's across the whole business.
Simple, good looking and seems to be a good fit
Not enough connectrs to test the free version
The best part is the number of the connectors to the platforms that we are already using (ie. Social Media, HubSpot).
No particular thing comes to mind. The overall experience is really good.
We were looking for easy to use dashboards that needs no coding. Databox is really helpful for us and we use it mostly for marketing purposes.
I like them to get together a lot of measurement that it is not easy to visualize into a profound report.
I would like them to be more flexible in reports and cross reference data.
I projected my campaigns to get better results in the valley times in selling.
A great tool for creating good looking dashboards in minutes - a lot of helpful features such as templates, scorecards and more.
