It organized all of our digital assets so we can actually find things ourselves, without slowing down the designers.

Pros

Canto makes it so easy to find what you're looking for. We used to have an on-site server holding terrabytes of files, everything from photos to design files. We'd tried to organize it several different times and just never gotten very far, and the folder structure mostly lived in 1 or 2 people's heads, so we were constantly asking designers where files were.

Now, we can just search and find things ourselves. Even browsing is so lightning-fast compared to waiting for terrabytes of thumbnails to load on our old Windows server. And the tags have been a game-changer. Suddenly we don't have to remember what we named a file; the tags will find things for us. It's incredible.

Cons

Unlike competitors, Canto basically gives you the software and a little minor training and lets you have at it. We felt like we could have really made use of their expertise to help set up folders and tags more strictly so we don't eventually run into an overtagging mess.

Pros

fast and easy to use. There is a wide age range in the office and everyone is fairly comfortable with this system. Thanks!

Cons

Occasionally confusing to train new people and navigate but once everyone understands it is fast. It has really changed our office workflow for the better.

Lots of storage! Super easy to organize photos.

Pros

We use it in the marketing department and it has a ton of storage! We can easily upload and organize all our photos into folders! Plus the tagging allows for easy search and find later on!

Cons

It takes a while to get used to the format/structure.
The extra click to download/the time it takes to load the full image can be really annoying, but it's definitely not a deal breaker.
The design is a little clunky, but it definitely gets the job done.

Ease of use for all users. Sharing is a breeze. Allowing us to have a simple process when working with Photographers.

Cons

Exporting mass file shares to other file types should be available. All master assets should be able to be exported or saved as common file types easily. We don't want dupes and this would be very helpful.

Pros

The ability to gather images together, save them and create individual links for my contacts to download. It's also great for those times I need to share large files since I'm no longer limited by email.

Cons

It isn't easy to navigate and figure out how to do some things like creating a collection. I tried the help section, which didn't tell me how to do it. I had to ask for help from a coworker, and even she had trouble remembering/figuring out how to create one.

We provided our channel partners with access to a wealth of our corporate marketing and sales assets very quickly and easily.

Pros

I like the ability to easily create branded, multiple portals where the user experience is best.
It is very user friendly where finding content is easy.
The syncing to outside file storage apps like Dropbox is handy
There is version control and duplicate look ups.
The cost of ownership is good, we can users easily and affordably.



Cons

The reporting ability is average. It is hard to look at how people are using the content. And only admin can pull reports. Also the Intro email is not very customizable. So the user may get confused where it is coming from.
Last it does not any integration with Salesforce.com, this would be a nice to have feature.

The platform is simple, however, it provides all the functionality our team needs and desires. Our workflow is much more efficient than it has ever been. Little time is now wasted sharing and distributing photos throughout our team and our digital community. I can't imagine going back to a time when we did not have Flight in our office.

Cons

If I had to find a con, it would be an increased level of automated facial recognition, automated tagging, and gallery customization.

Fairly easy access to thousands of our archived images. Easier than having to search all the image archives on our company servers.

Pros

Easy access to my company's photo/image archive. Quick search leads me to the groups of images I need.

Cons

Seems to slow down the browser the longer you search images. So I end up having to relaunch the browser, restart the search, and start scrolling all the way from the top to access the group of images I had made it to before the relaunch. Tagging photos hasn't been very intuitive. I'll tag a group after uploading, only to have them not show up in searches.

Pros

Searchability. When assets are uploaded, the system will automatically generate smart tags, and additional tags can be added manually. Our department uses specific file naming and folder structures within Flight, and the search feature makes it easy to pinpoint assets. You can search by filename, folder, metadata, tags, categories, etc. You can also group similar photos together for easy navigating, include the same asset in multiple folders, and create personal "collections" of your favorite assets.

Cons

I can honestly say that the system is working perfectly for our team's needs. There were a couple functionality issues and recommendations when we first got started that we spoke with the Flight customer support team about, and they were able to correct and implement new features based on our conversation. The system is frequently updated based on new technology and users' feedback, and the customer support team is always ready to respond.
