Cohortify.com was a proof of concept created to assist in analyzing SaaS cohort data that came in XLS formats that had rows of customers and columns of revenue by period (year, month, day). This data format that is typically exported by most financial reporting packages is not conducive to cohort analysis. Given a file in a specific approximate format (Sample File), Cohortify would convert the time series data to cohorts, and produce the following data sets, which could easily generate a full report (Sample Report):
- Total Cohort Revenue in Period N (Screenshot)
- Total Cohort Revenue by Period (Screenshot)
- Total Cohort Clients in Period N (Screenshot)
- Total Cohort Clients by Period (Screenshot)
While no longer active, Cohortify was a Proof of Concept built on the weekends by myself and Charlie Fierro.

RoomHunt was acquired in 2015 by RentLingo, an apartment review and aggregation site (Techcrunch Link) (PDF).
