We are using Databox mainly to monitor our sales activity in HubSpot since HubSpot's reporting on activities is pretty barebones. It is only administered and used by myself for the Sales department as a tool to measure and enforce CRM use/adoption. I show it in meetings monthly but check it frequently myself to make sure people are engaged, particularly after a meeting where we decide on a new plan of attack to increase activity. All-in-all, we use Databox to fill the gaps in HubSpot's very weak activity reporting, and we use it for accountability.
  • Automatically connects data without you having to think about it. I had another reporting tool that required me to set up all of the data connections for HubSpot from scratch and it was such a pain that I basically had to give up. I'm no SQL expert. Databox just worked.
  • The report wizard has good built-in boards that are great places to start building a view tailored to your specific needs
  • Has a head-spinning amount of customization options and potential data sources.
  • 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
Databox is the perfect product for a team of people who want to just click a button and start making reports. It turns out most businesses don't need the highly customizable and very high-priced features of Tableau. If you need reporting that will take you beyond the absolute basic reporting in HubSpot or another CRM but don't want to break the bank, Databox is your product of choice.

Very little technical knowledge, time, or money is required to get a much clearer picture of your data using Databox.

  • Databox provided a way for us to have a cheap insight into our HubSpot Sales rep activity that the CRM itself could not provide. This has allowed us to monitor sales activities and make sure we are on target before a problem occurs
  • Saved time when developing reports
Databox automatically integrates with tons of different data sources without you needing to arrange the backend information on how everything should connect. Tableau, Power BI, and Sisense require a lot of manual setup unless you have all of your fields perfectly matched up for auto-detecting relationships... and even then those systems can struggle to automatically map information.
The only interaction I have had with customer support was asking them about how to change my email notifications to be less frequent. They got back to me in a very short period of time and had a clear, concise answer that instructed me on how to change all of my email options.

Databox is used to create a marketing dashboard for the weekly marketing meetings to show how things are going for the month and for the last 30 days. 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.
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.

  • 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.
While HubSpot is where we store our information and utilize the systems, the reporting wasn't deep enough and it didn't include the entire website since it is hosted elsewhere. So I started looking at options, and Databox came as a recommendation so I checked it out and haven't turned back. I didn't evaluate any other products because Databox met our need and we were able to get started right away.
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.

Databox 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.
Previously, we had to pull in the data manually and either create powerpoint slide decks or use Data studio which is nice, but not as seamless as Databox. Databox is great for marketers at any level as it can easily grow and expand depending on your needs and sophistication. It is light eight enough for small businesses and mid-market firms, but can also be beneficial for larger enterprises.

  • 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.
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.
Databox has a good support system and is very responsive to inquiries, issues, and general questions. In addition, their knowledge base (https://help.databox.com/) is a robust resource with a lot of helpful articles, FAQs, step-by-step instructions and more to help the more independent user who would rather avoid contacting customer service directly.
Databox and Grow are similar tools, and truthfully, Grow is a more powerful platform with more sophisticated reporting, integrations, and a larger feature set. However, Grow is significantly more expensive and Databox has the features you need most for less of an investment. I just found Databox to be a better overall value.
