Molly Huebenthal

Practical & Pleaseing Data Tool For the Small Business

2018-11-27

Data Box has really allowed my company to scale reporting for our clients - building easy reports

Pros

Overall it is simple to build visuals without code and drill down further into those visuals via the query builder or manipulating data rows/columns.

Cons

The free version is very limiting in data and may limit data source connections.

Liking what I'm seeing...

2017-03-30

This app is exactly what I'm looking for ... mobile-forward dashboarding for multiple data sources.

Pros

Mutliple data sources, easy to design, nice interface

Cons

So far I haven't seen how I can add custom salesforce objects, but it's probably there ... also looking for custom date ranges in Xero.

Want to see how multiple data sources work- have to review first before adding additional sources

2017-06-25

save time and save money from not having to go to many different websites to capture analytical data.

Pros

I like that I can customize the dashboard and seemingly add multiple data sources to a single dashboard view.

Dashboard that I was looking for years!!!

2017-02-19

That is so much easy to monitor everything I need... no.of leads from Active Campaign through Zapier, no. of unsubscribers, expenses - Google Sheet via Zapier ... everything finally comes together to a cool looking dashboard on my iPhone.

Pros

Dashboards look very nice and are very flexible.

Cons

I wish they add direct integration with WooCommerce

Easy to use and pleasing to the eye

2019-05-02

Pros

You can get started in under a minute with no prior knowledge about analytics or dashboards.

Cons

More tehcnical users might miss advanced features (like making custom in-app API calls) but I guess that would defeat the purpose of keeping it simple for the rest of us.

Good solution for in-depth social media analytics

2018-12-12

Was looking to create an analytics dashboard for my social media management and databox seems like a good solution.

Pros

I just started using this software recently, and it helps to show in-depth analytics for my social media channels that are helpful to show to my manager

Cons

It's a bit overwhelming for someone who is new to analytics and data processing, and the free version is limiting.

Great dashboard solution for data visualization

2018-08-25

Pros

Love the ability to customize dashboards and integrate various pieces of data into one dashboard (we use it to integrate HubSpot and Google Analytics)

Cons

Getting the metrics and graphs show up just the way you want will take some practice.

Beautiful Metrics & Reporting

2019-09-23

Some of the team here can build marketing dashboards in Google Data Studio, but this can be time-consuming and most situations don't require the levels of customisation that GDS allows.

Pros

The way that Databox has been built is all about speed and simplicity, with little or no knowledge in building dashboards and reporting functions you can set up beautiful looking reporting systems.

Cons

There are some functions in the dashboard builder that still feel a little clunky, such as only being able to move an element once you've selected it and hovered over the move crosshair - but these are small UI points.

Pros

- Daily scorecards - Beautiful designed web and mobile app - Databox Query Builder which allows us to get customized metrics from analytic tools - Powerful yet simple Designer, where you can quickly set up datacards with a simple drag and drop feature - Very helpful and responsive customer support

Cons

- The alerting feature didn't seem to work for us two months ago so we stopped using it

Business analytics made beautiful. A really nice app.

2016-08-17

Worked great and it has beautiful charts. But then I found out it does much more.

Pros

Simple to connect different data sources and have all the data in one place.

Cons

Needed a Zapier account to connect to Spreadsheets, but on the other hand Zapier allows me to add many other sources.

Amazing easy to use and setup dashboards

Pros

I like that I can customize the dashboard and seemingly add multiple data sources to a single dashboard view.

Cons

The cons of this application are it can be a bit challenging sometimes to get the data updated and connect all external data sources. But the tutorials and guides are very helpful to solve the most of the issues

A complete 3rd party analytics software.

2019-12-30

I like the idea to see all the views of my google Chanel under one dashboard. UI is simple and working with multiple accounts is just very easy.

Pros

I use our youtube channel statistics and some ads result under one dashboard.

Cons

Not all the integration, some of them are very commonly available are available to use with all plans.

Just the tool we needed.

2019-11-05

For our clients, we're showing them how their investment is put to use but also having greater conversations over what we can do TOGETHER to improve results. They see that we are more than just a marketing agency, we are a partner. For our agency, we are able to show results across each discipline. The artists have more ownership in the results than they once did. Our brand managers are more strategic and forward thinking.

Pros

I love that it has the ability to layer on multiple sets of data with the same detail as Grow or Tableau, without the restricting price tag.

Cons

Sometimes the API integrations are clunky.
