Web-based file transferring has previously been limited by long URL codes. FilesDIRECT has upgraded our system by integrating with bit.ly to shorten lengthy links making them easier to read. Shorter file codes reduce further hassles because less link breakages occur. Also, the need to copy and paste long URLs is eliminated thereby making file transferring more convenient and user friendly. Smaller file codes can also be used with Twitter and Facebook, thereby ensuring clients are able to source all media marketing outlets for their file transfers.
