The dashboard view allows us to see marketing in a one-page view and discuss what's working and not working and what we've done to create changes. It is truly only used by marketing, but it is viewed by upper management to see how marketing overall is doing. The business problem it addresses is being able to see a snapshot and not needing to pull a bunch of reports. It saves time and energy.,Easy to read dashboards - This allows a user to communicate information quickly. Reporting for your needs (Daily, Weekly, Monthly) - This allows you to set the reporting structure that works for you. Easy to connect software - With a few simple clicks you can connect a large number of software programs.,Reminders to update goals - It would be nice if every quarter or so it would remind you to adjust any goals as needed. Change the layout of reports on the dashboard - While not super difficult, it did take me a while to figure out how to move the reports around so it was just right. More templates with multiple sources - It would be nice to see more templates with multiple sources. While you can edit and add your own, it would be nice to see more of the common ones.,10,We've been able to better understand how everything relating to marketing has been doing, allowing us to make better decisions. We've been able to also make decisions that impact other departments in a good way from the information we gather from the reports. In general, just the time savings have been huge for us. I don't have to spend time putting reports together and we don't have to go through 3 reports to get the same information.,HubSpot,10,HubSpot, HubSpot CRM, HubSpot Sales, WordPress, SmartlookDatabox Brings Reporting Into the 21st CenturyWe use Databox to aggregate metrics and data points from multiple sources into real-time data walls. We also build reporting dashboards for our clients, helping them sort, manage, and view reporting metrics and campaign performance.,Databox provides unique capabilities for displaying reporting requirements. Databox allows users to connect multiple data sources into a single view, avoiding the need to log in to multiple software packages to access reporting in different formats. Databox lets people without access to certain reporting sources the ability to view reports from a web link, without requiring login credentials.,Databox needs to expand their API connectors for existing connections. Databox needs to expand their available connectors to a larger list of source providers. Databox needs to make report setup and connection to different data sources more intuitive.,8,Databox has helped us streamline our reporting process, reducing manual entry and time invested to generate reporting. This has saved many hours of labor per month, reducing costs of reporting, and freeing up resources to spend allocatable time on other important items. Databox has improved the visibility for sales and marketing performance, increasing trust and alignment with our clients.,Grow.com,SEMRush, Google Analytics, LeadGnomeA powerful dashboard tool with a lower price than similar competitorsDatabox is used as our agency's BI/dashboard tool to pull in analytics from various data points and create a more seamless display of KPIs and other metrics. We use the tool for both our own analytics, as well as create dashboards for clients as a way to easily report what is happening with their digital marketing efforts.,Pulls in analytics from various digital data points. Easily design and create custom dashboards. Saves time and energy by creating a real-time measurement. Tracks goals and measures various KPIs.,Lacks integration with several tools we use for digital marketing. Can be a bit complicated to get everything set up. The white label/company branding requires the business plan which is very expensive with not enough value add.,9,Saves the marketing team time from having to create manual reports. Allows marketing to report to sales and leadership as to the success of the marketing efforts. Measures the ROI of each marketing channel.,9,9,Grow.com and Google Data Studio,FortiClient, Slack, NextivaBeautiful Reporting, Made EasyDatabox is being used at our marketing agency for clients that use HubSpot, Google Analytics and other tools. It's not being used for magazines and companies we work with on a project-by-project basis. It addresses business problems of inefficient reporting and combining multiple data sources into one report with multiple metrics.,Combining and integrating with data sources Beautifully displaying metrics Customizing metrics and visualization styles Time range filtering,Finicky editing tools Custom reporting is more expensive Limited visual customizations,9,Better visualizations for what we're doing Improved efficiency when building reports Automating metrics,Tableau Desktop and Google Analytics,Google Analytics, BrightEdgeIt's, like, 90% there. But that last missing 10% can hurt.We create multiple databoards for each of the clients we serve, and most people on the campaign have some sort of hand in it. We implemented Databox in hopes of saving hours of times on reporting (we hate spreadsheets!) and for real-time data reporting. We also wanted a reporting platform that told more of a "story" for our clients, rather than just show some numbers. The visual aspect of the platform is awesome as well.,Databox is constantly looking for new ways to improve their platform, which is great. Databox one year ago is very different than what it is now! If you know how to use the tool, it can be extremely powerful and flexible to what you're looking for. The ability to sync multiple different websites/platforms (HubSpot, Google Analytics, FB ads, etc) takes away the need to hop in and out of several different places for info. Databox is a great way to add additional value for clients who are looking for reporting. No more spreadsheets! Their support team is AWESOME and very responsive!,It can be very difficult to learn Databox, so definitely account for a learning curve if you make the investment. We've run into several cases where we spend weeks trying to figure out how to report on something, but when we get support to help us they figure it out in like 2 seconds. Tory is awesome! Sometimes when HubSpot makes an update, it breaks our Databoards and then we have to go in and redo everything :(,6,Honestly, Databox has been a bit of a pain for us these last few months. There are some things it just can't provide us, and some of our clients don't like it. Sometimes it takes too much effort to create a Databoard than it's worth. And since we're a HubSpot partner agency, we're limited to making smart lists for a lot of what we're looking for. On the other hand, high-level reporting is awesome. And they're always updating the tool with new templates/features to stay ahead of the game.,,HubSpot, HubSpot CRM, HubSpot Sales, Lucidchart, PandaDoc, ZapierUnspecified
