IMatch WebServices™

One of the core components of IMatch Anywhere are the IMatch WebServices. They implement a standard web service that can be used by software, apps, web sites and other web services to access IMatch databases remotely.

IMatch WebServices have been designed for excellent performance even for large databases. They include strong security features and a flexible user management and access control system. You stay in control over who can access your IMatch database and which parts of it.

IMatch WebViewer™

The first app built for IMatch Anywhere is the IMatch WebViewer, a powerful yet easy to use web app for accessing IMatch databases remotely, via Wi-Fi, mobile and corporate networks and even over the Internet. IMatch WebViewer runs in any modern web browser and on any device and operating system. Browse IMatch databases on Android or Apple tablets, from Linux computers or Smart TVs. See IMatch Anywhere in action in the IMatch Anywhere Learning Center.

Stay in Control of Your Data

IMatch WebServices use the same technological basis as IMatch itself. They work with your files where they are. No need to change your file system structure and no need to upload of your files into a cloud or anything.

Flexible Access Control

IMatch Anywhere includes easy yet powerful features to control the files users can access or the features they are allowed to use.

For example, allow your family to access all files managed by IMatch, but limit access for friends only to certain folders, categories or collections.
If you use IMatch Anywhere in a corporate or institutional setting, you can easily setup access groups per department and then control who sees what.
