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.

    I was looking for a solution to display website data and analytics for my clients. As a design and development agency, I wanted something that looks great, is easy for clients to use, and that I can "set and forget". Databox is the answer! By far the best in the industry. The free version is great for many small clients, and the paid upgrades for more integrations and users is very fair for those that need it.

    Pros

    Vast number of integrations, ease of use creating boards, white labeling, multiple users, mobile app is fantastic, goals, notifications, snapshots, and it's beautiful!

    Cons

    Some of the pre-made templates are too specialized. I created a client account before they introduced Agency accounts, and can't switch it over easily.

    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.

    Overpriced / Clunky / Terrible Customer Service

    Reviewed on 05/06/2024

    Pros

    The UI is fine and the user experience is relatively easy to navigate.

    Cons

    Overpriced for what you get. Terrible support and customer service. The worst from any company I have worked with. So many better options out there than Databox. We use Looker Studio and our clients have been so much happier.

    Alternatives Considered

    Looker

    Reasons for Choosing Databox

    Looker Studio is much better across the board. Great integration. Better UI. Our customers are far more happy with Looker Studio over Databox. We will never go back to Databox again.

    Reasons for Switching to Databox

    It was the wrong decision. Looker is so much better than Databox. I recommend it to other agencies and have even got two other agencies to switch from Databox to Looker and they are so much happier.

    We tried a few other apps. None came close to the ease of use, flexibility, simplicity and customer support we got from databox. At one point we need a specific attribute from MixPanel, and after asking support on how to do this, they actually rolled up a new feature into production in less than a weeks time. (Maybe it was in the pipeline, but it's still amazing)

    Pros

    Amazing customer support, very easy to use, nice design too.

    Cons

    None so far, extremely flexible so meeting all our needs.

    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.
