Getting Started: Databox Fundamentals

Databox is a decision making platform designed to help you understand what’s going on with your business. It connects to your cloud services, spreadsheets, databases and custom integrations to organize all your business KPIs in one place. Databox will deliver your KPIs via mobile, browser, big screen, Apple Watch® or even Slack.


In essence, Databox is not an analytics tool that would allow you to perform comprehensive or drill-down analysis. It will, however, with features like Daily Scorecards, Smart alerts and Favorites help you understand how your business performs from day to day.

Elements of the Databox Platform

The entire Databox experience is built to support multiple devices and platforms so that you can access your KPIs from wherever you want, whenever you want:

Databox Datawall

With the Desktop / TV screen view (also called a Datawall), we’re extending the functionality of the mobile app to web browsers and overhead displays. This will give you immediate access to your most important information. We’d call it a dashboard, but it’s so much more than that.

Designer Databox

The Databox Designer is the management hub of your Databox experience. It allows you to integrate with new data, connect to custom data sources, create new Databoards, modify Datablocks, manage users and more. Note that it’s only accessible to account owners and administrators.
