Extensive Metric Library and easy-to-use Metric Tools

In Databox, each Data Source comes loaded with thousands of ready-made metrics. Using the Metric Library, you can easily explore and add metrics to your dashboards and reports to instantly visualize your performance. If you can’t find the metric you need, you can create additional metrics with Metric Tools. With the Metric Builder, add advanced filters and dimensions using simple dropdown menus. With Metric Calculations, create calculated metrics with ease – no coding skills are needed, it’s as simple as building an equation.

Variety of pre-defined metrics for Google Services, complex data fields

With Looker Studio, users can easily visualize data from Google services. But, identifying the available metrics can be hard, especially when you’re looking for metrics that go beyond Google connectors. Users can create calculated metrics using data fields, but it can be a bit complex. It involves writing formulas, which might pose a challenge for users with limited technical skills.


120+ integrations, Google Sheets, SQL databases, and more options to cover your data needs

Connect your data to Databox using any of our 70+ native integrations. Databox connects with the most popular platforms for every department, including marketing, finance, sales, and more. Go beyond what’s natively available by connecting SQL databases, spreadsheets, and Custom API integrations. Or push data into Databox using the Rest API.

Native integrations with Google’s ecosystem, partner connectors available

Looker Studio’s native integrations are specifically designed to connect exclusively within Google’s ecosystem, without any extra charges. But, if users need to connect with platforms outside of Google’s services, they rely on partner integrations that are managed by third-party providers. Often, this involves additional costs as users would have to purchase a license with tools like Supermetrics or Megalytics.


Presentation-style reports, variety of report templates, automated insights

Choose from a range of report templates or create a report from scratch. With a variety of different slide types, like text, dashboards, side-by-side, and data stories, add context and explain your results effortlessly. With Report automation, set reminders and schedule your reports to automatically be exported at your set frequency. Plus, Data Stories includes insights that automatically update with every report delivery.

Templates available only for Google connectors

Lookers Studio offers a handful of templates, tailored specifically for Google connectors like YouTube, Google Search Console, etc. Creating a report is straightforward. Users can either start from scratch or choose to use a template. Once the report is ready, Looker Studio allows users to automate sharing.


Easy to build dashboards, 140+ templates, and a variety of sharing options

Databox provides 140+ pre-built dashboard templates, covering the most common metrics for every department. Start by selecting a template or creating your own dashboard from scratch. With a drag-and-drop interface, you can easily add, resize and move visualizations on the dashboard canvas. Seamlessly share your dashboards via link, email, Slack, or even stream them to your TV. The best part? Recipients can access your interactive dashboards without needing a Databox account.

Does not include a dedicated feature for dashboards

Looker Studio does not have a dedicated dashboard feature. Instead, users can create dashboards using Reports. Users can adjust the canvas size (width and length) to make a single-page dashboard. Once a user has created a dashboard, it can be shared through links, email, or embedded reports. Only Google account users can access dashboards using the shared link.

Goals and notifications

Goals, Alerts, Scorecards, Metrics Digest, Slack Notifications, and more

Proactively monitor your performance with Databox’s built-in notification system. Set targets and track progress with Goals, stay updated on top metrics with Scorecards, receive tailored notifications with Alerts, and gain detailed metric updates with the Metric Digest. The best part? Your notifications will be delivered where it matters most to you – Slack, email, push notification, and more.

No notifications available

Users can visualize Goals using a Gauge chart. Looker Studio does not provide any notification features.
