Pros

The basic account is free with data box and gives you 3 datasources which is enough to make some really nice visualisations of your data. We use it to send investors regular updates and give them a link they can access whenever they want to get an update on our progress. Once we created theses boards they just update automatically which make it some much easier to manage.
They have a great range of connectctions with most of the services you can think off to run your business. Their visualisation tools make it pretty easy to set up nice views of your data, and if you are stuck they have some great templates that just plug and play with your data.

Cons

There have been a few bugs as we are in the UK we want money to be in £ and their default is $ there are some work arounds to make it work but it would be nice to have currency support built in and automatic.
Sometimes the data shows a little funnily on the iPhone app, support are very good at fixing this issues though.

Pros

DataBox is a great, simple, not requiring an unnecessary fuss, solution for businesses of any size. The visual component of this dashboard is perhaps its main feature, the interface design is simply magnificent and pleases the eye. You can move and rotate every panel the way you want it. It's very easy to use. Documentations and webinars are so useful, but at any time you can contact the support team. In general, the support system here works flawlessly. I think this is one of the best solutions for that price.

Cons

I have been using dashbox for quite a long time, and during use I have not noticed any major or critical problems, everything works as it should. The only thing I would like to see is a wider functionality in some aspects.

Pros

I work as the Director of Marketing Strategy at DD, which is an inbound marketing agency that services nonprofits and higher education institutions. We're a HubSpot certified partner agency and we were looking to Databox to help us make our client reports quicker, more interactive, and more robust. Databox's clean user-interface makes it really easy to notice trends...it also updates in almost real-time (if not real-time) which is helpful. The customizable dashboards are helpful as well...and there's no doubt that this tool is affordable to agencies like DD who need to report on a wide variety of metrics for 20+ accounts.

Cons

While there are definitely some pros to Databox, there are also some key features that they are missing. For example, you can't customize date ranges for reports. You have to choose from a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis...but you can't choose "Feb. 3 2017 - Feb. 23 2018" for example. This makes reporting very challenging if, for example, you start an inbound engagement with a client during the middle of the year and want to report on 6 month efforts and 12 month efforts that don't align perfectly with the Jan - Dec calendar year. Additionally, while the user-interface is clean, it's almost TOO white...our clients have found it really difficult to discern between traffic sources and points in time.

All of this is to say, I'm highly skeptical of reporting tools that don't let you customize the date and time of your reports...While Databox looks like 2018, it functions like 2010. We have cancelled our services as of now, but I have written emails and social posts to their product team and have encouraged them to "fix" the product and then come sell it to me again...

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 clear vision of our business, on every aspect: marketing, sales, tech, etc. Ready in a few clicks without over-engineering.

Pros

Probably the best product out there from a UX/UI perspective. Databox is extremely powerful yet very simple to use: connecting and customizing your data sources is super easy. Finally, we love having our beautiful dashboards on TV, computer or mobile.

Cons

Missing a Segment integration maybe to get all our app events? We rely on their Zapier integration to compensate. That was a good workaround. Otherwise, all good!

You can configurate all live reports as you like and need. Also you can get some templates of partners with which they worked successfully. You can find boards for Social Media accounts and ads, Google Analytics and Adwords, all about HubSpot and many more. If you don't have a tool which collects all of this, Databox is your choice.

Cons

You need a lot of time and some webinars to understand all the opportunities and how to configure it for yourself.

We've saved so much time centralizing and automating our multi-platform reporting, allowing us to spend more time analyzing results instead of pulling them.

Pros

They're continually building out new connectors and features based off customer feedback so things move quickly in the direction you're looking for.

Cons

It's still new and slightly buggy at times so it can be frustrating sometimes to build something out and not have it work 100% correctly. This is small stuff though since their support is amazing and the bugs are fixed quickly.

This is software I thought you could only get for 100s or 1000s per month. A few clicks and you have live, relevant dashboards for your business. Pretty amazing.

Cons

The more businesses they are able to integrate with the better it will be, specifically google sheets. That would allow for more easy to setup dashboards.

If you don't know much about online marketing - you really need someone that does to set it up for you. Its not that the software is hard to use - but rather you need to know what data you need to visualize to effect your business.

The ability to report and see insights in a different way visually.

Pros

I like the visual aspect of the tool and the mobile app makes things so easy and accessible. It also allows the use of most social media apps.

Cons

Not having access to download reports and merge analytics is a downfall. The tool would be a lot more useful for monthly reports and worth the price if this was possible - as not all clients want to use a link to view documents.

Digital signage, daily updates to your devices.

I loved the UI, how easy it was to sync data resources, how user-friendly it is. The data wall option is the most significant for me because I am using it as a digital signage tool in my company. It is wonderful.
