    At Databox, our mission has always been to help growing businesses centralize their data to improve their performance. First, we made it easy to visualize and track your performance with easy-to-setup dashboards, and 1-click integrations. Then we made it easy to share your performance with your team, clients, or shareholders with automated reports. And now, we’ve taken steps to further advance our mission with Databox Analytics: new tools that make it easy for you to compare, anticipate, and get insights to improve your performance.

    Traditional BI tools are incredibly powerful, but also inaccessible to most growing businesses. They’re expensive, complicated to set up, and usually require resident experts to manage. And simple dashboard or visualization tools lack the advanced functionality you need to make data-informed decisions.

    That’s where Databox Analytics comes in. We’ve taken some of the most powerful tools traditional analytics tools offer, integrated them with AI, and made them easy to set up and use. And just as with our dashboard and reporting tools, anyone on your team can use them – no data science experience required.

    Don’t just track performance. Improve it.

    Top-performing companies use data to make better decisions, identify issues, and uncover opportunities. We’ve taken the most powerful features in enterprise analytics tools and made them easy to set up and accessible to everyone on the Growth plan.

    Performance summaries: answer, “how are we doing?” in seconds.

    Performance Summaries

    Traditionally, understanding performance and contextualizing data was a task reserved for “experts”. With Performance summaries, anyone (regardless of their experience) can make sense of performance-related data – quickly.

    In one view you’ll get a comprehensive summary of where you’re at. Quickly understand if you’re trending up or down. Easily assess your performance with color-coded indicators. Plus, get recommendations and ideas on how you can move the needle on important metrics.

    Benchmarks: see where you’re ahead of the curve, and where you need to improve.

    Benchmarks are crucial to help you understand how you stack up against companies like yours. You can use them to show your managers, board, or clients that you’re ahead of the competition and headed in the right direction. And you finally answer the question, “is this good?”, and see if you’re spending too much per click, or closing enough deals. Soon, you’ll be able to view benchmarks right within the analytics app, so you can seamlessly integrate performance analysis into your daily workflow.

    Pick any metric and tailor your benchmark by selecting from a range of characteristics including industry size, monthly or annual revenue, and more.

    Forecasts: make better, data-informed decisions.

    Get highly accurate predictions of your most important metrics with Forecasts.

    What will your traffic, signups, or sales be next quarter? Being able to anticipate future performance is crucial to creating an accurate plan. Now you can eliminate guesswork from strategic planning. With Metric Forecasts, get highly accurate predictions of your most important metrics so you can set goals that are not just realistic but also data-informed.

    Get an easy-to-read chart and summary of your forecasted metric. And easily compare your forecasts to your goals and historical data, so you can update your plans in real time.

    Anomaly detection: get alerted when things go sideways.

    Get alerted when things go sideways with Anomaly Detection.

    When your ad costs surge, traffic falls off a cliff, or leads dry up, it’s crucial that you get alerted right away. That way, you can evaluate potential causes in real time rather than trying to evaluate what happened months later. To make that easier than ever, we’re launching anomaly detection. You’ll get automatically alerted when a specific number is above or below a threshold.

    Get access all our AI-powered analytics tools in one plan

    We’ve taken the most powerful features traditional analytics offer, and packaged them in one convenient plan. And like our dashboards, we made them easy to set up and use. Introducing the Growth Plan: for growing businesses who want to use data to make better decisions and improve performance.
