Databox

I believe Databox can be an asset for any company. We are a small company, but I can see the value for large companies too. Databox is a great fit for departments or organizations that need to put their data into a readable form without needing a ton of reports. Databox allows you to save time and put together a nice report without having to do too much extra work. Once it is set up, it basically runs on its own at the frequency you set. I personally receive a daily report and have it sent to the respective people on the day of our meeting so we can quickly review it.

Plotly Chart Studio

[Plotly Chart Studio is] a great tool to make visualizations on a web based portal. For python developers, it can ease of some burden of writing code again and again for the same thing and also refreshing visualizations on old scripts when data changes. All in all, a simple yet effective tool for your report generation and visualization needs[.]

Pros

Databox

  • Create dashboards from a variety of data sources.
  • Set & track goals based on the data and metrics provided.
  • Send alerts and scorecard updates to Slack and email automatically.

Plotly Chart Studio

  • Connects to almost every kind of data source like SQL, Excel, MS Access, flat files and more.
  • Charts get saved to the repository and are re-used by multiple users.
  • No need of manual intervention in order to refresh the charts every time the data gets changed.

Cons

Databox

  • Some types of data can only be reported on for 1-2 months back. Unless I'm misunderstanding the function of the software this seems really weird. I can't figure out how to report on Activities more than 2 months ago

Plotly Chart Studio

  • Lack of customer support
  • Sometimes fails to visualize extremely large datasets ( probably also due to computer resource constraints)

Databox is an intuitive, well-designed platform that can be used by non-technical marketers. It is easy to learn, and while set up takes time, usability is high and the team has enjoyed creating custom dashboards and clients have also given us great feedback regarding its usability and value. While other BI tools are much more complex to navigate, Databox is a breeze.

I have really enjoyed using Databox and have seen the value of it in many ways. They also continue to improve the functions of it and grow their integrations and templates. I look forward to continuing to use Databox in the future, potentially even finding ways to incorporate it into other departments to help them with reporting as well.

Alternatives Considered

Databox

Databox is unique in its ability to report from multiple data sources. Google Analytics is the standard when it comes to web metrics, but it's just one of the tools that integrates with Databox. Tableau is fantastic for data visualizations and reporting, but it's much more expensive than Databox, so it's not ideal for everyone. Tableau is also superior with customization

Return on Investment

Databox

  • It has helped us to show our value to clients
  • Easily digestible dashboards make it easy to understand what you're looking at
Dustin Brackett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Plotly Chart Studio

  • Improvement in productivity as charts can be shared with teams and feedback can be collected, consolidated and incorporated in the design and charts.
  • Charts are aligned with the organization theme and colors and one doesn't need to put in effort every time to do that.
  • No upfront capital expenditure and minimum user criteria helps the organization to keep the costs down.
