A powerful desktop browser for
your local content libraries
The perfect visual browsing experience
With Connecter, you have a clean visually-oriented index that makes browsing, organizing, and consuming of your local asset libraries efficient and less time-consuming. Preview all types of content with fast-loading visual thumbnails, interactive 3d viewer, custom previews,
and more . . .
I've kept an eye on asset-management software for many years, and most offerings have been unwieldy and a bit daunting, and not particularly user-friendly. Connecter has simplified the process a great deal, and made browsing through our libraries and keywording assets really easy, enjoyable and productive.
Connecter shared workspace is the team's centralized source of truth for your ever growing assets library.
- Instant setup of a team workspace for assets metadata sharing.
- The whole team collaborates on assets organizing and cataloging.
- All changes and updates instantly synchronized with the whole team.
- Usersâ roles with view or edit permissions.
