Short.cm, Mixpanel, and Segment: What's in common?
Mixpanel is an advanced mobile and web analytics platform. In the Mixpanel service measuring page views are replaced by the analytics of the actions people take in your application.
How does Mixpanel work?

The strength of the Mixpanel analytics:
- Events: Mixpanel lets users easily determine events to track.

- Integrations: Mixpanel integrates with the third-party services.
Why do you need Segment.io while using Mixpanel?
When you use Segment to transfer data to Mixpanel, instead of working with different Mixpanel APIs and SDKs, you only need to learn Segment’s API.
After installing Segment, your customer data will also be sent to your other tools like email, chat, push, and the ad conversions.
With Segment app, you shouldn’t implement snippet code in your product. Moreover, once you install Segment, you don't need to establish a custom code each time you want to access additional Mixpanel data.
