Custom Link Shortener for SAAS Apps

Ever need a link shortener for a project your working on? Want something you can host? I put something together this weekend specifically designed for saas style companies.

Drop three files into your project, and then make short links to your little hearts desire. The application itself can be hosted on it’s own domain – or within a directory. It allows every link to be connected to a specific customer account, and user id.

You can also add custom variables onto the links themselves for location, person ID, and 3 others (a,b,c). Imagine an email with one link, but being able to track total clicks, and who clicked. Plus we also break down device data, and geo-code the IP address (though that seems a bit inaccurate – eh).

Easy to make custom landing and error pages (just use a folder and it’ll grab and display the content.
