My organization has a heavy need for an asset management system that keep up with our photography traffic. We have to upload tons of pictures at one time, and Canto is very efficient in letting us label and tag everything appropriately so it's easy to search for what we need.

Pros

It's clean, easy to use, organized, and easy to manage.

Cons

I can't find any cons with Canto. It has everything I need.

There's so much less time waiting on a file from someone or making sure we have the right one. We just go on Canto and find it ourselves

Pros

Canto has made it extremely easy for our reps to have access to all kinds of files including logos, infographics, headers, invitations and so much more.

Cons

No bad things to say really! The way it allows you to tag and flag items make it so easy to find when you need them! The layout is extremely easy to navigate as well!

We have been able to store our finished assets and make them accessible to the marketing team. We have non-sales assets that we need to reference. A great example is our tradeshow display materials which we make available for our field teams to select from for their shows.

Pros

We purchased Canto because it had the key features we needed. Tagging, searchability, categorization. Simple implementation, easy-to-use. We needed a way to store our assets outside of the sales org and Canto provides an easy way for doing this.

Cons

I dont have any complaints about Canto, sure there are features in other tools that are more advanced but we got what we needed.

I use this software everyday to share files. It has easy-to-use controls to determine who can share and see the content. Its very easy to integrate into our already existing marketing system.

Pros

The software was very simple to use and easy to navigate.

Cons

It freezes upon uploading numerous photos and videos.

My favorite things about Canto are:

-Tagging. Our company has loved the unlimited amount of tags we can apply to photos to improve our ability to search project photos.

-Sharing Photos Through Link Generation. I love being able to select whatever photos I want to share, generate a link, and then send to a coworker/client for easy download

Cons

We've had trouble with certain albums being unable to download. We're not sure why this is the case but feel like it is a problem that can be fixed soon.

Overall, the customer services is great. Everyone on my team and within my department are very happy with the solution and they all claim that Canto has made their lives easier and jobs more efficient.

Pros

I like that I can drag and drop folders and albums to reorganize when needed. The tagging and filtering features are top notch. You can relate files to one another and share links with people outside of your team for viewing and downloading.

Cons

I wish I could make the thumbnails a little larger when browsing, but not a dealbreaker. The cropping and resizing functions are confusing and don't produce the results I would like.

Canto has allowed us a much greater connection to our external requestors. It's created a visual library that's so much easier to use than the piecemeal solutions we were using previously.

Pros

The product is scalable, nimble, and highly intuitive. On the rare occasions that we've required support, both the automated responses and the live operators have been friendly, helpful, and knowledgable.

Cons

Adding portals eats into your storage allotment. Portals are a great way to divide up different users, but the way Canto decides what counts against your storage count is challenging.

The ability to quickly find photos of employees, events and locations quickly with tags and other metadata saves our team many hours each week.

Pros

I was in charge of transfering several terabytes of data to Canto and the one feature that saved me tons of time was canto connect app which enabled me to batch upload terabytes of data overnight.

Cons

It has gotten better, but initially when we started moving everything the duplicate check feature wasn't as robust as it is today, but It seems to have gotten better.

Pros

I found the formatting and layout of the Canto software very easy to navigate, which is helpful.

Cons

I found the use of the two downloading buttons on images to be a bit excessive on Canto. The second pop up window is not necessary; it's just extra steps.

As a small independent school with many digital assets, we have been able to organize and share our files more easily with different departments at our school.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve for the users, but for those who want to learn it does not take long to understand how to find the asset the asset they need.

Pros

We had been using a simplified asset management system, but realized we needed something more robust. Canto was able to deliver what we needed. We needed something that was easy to use, had the ability to add many users for internal access as well as the ability to share externally, and needed very good cataloging/search tools. It does all that and much more. Canto has been great for us as we now have all of our media assets in one place.

Cons

Not necessarily a knock on the software, unless there is a solution to this problem. But mass uploading takes some time since you have to go back in to organize & tag everything.

I like that it is a self-service database where associates can access approved, current assets without having to ask staff to spend time finding or recreating assets. You know the content is approved and ready to use. The Canto drag and drop feature makes adding assets to files super easy. Another great feature is being able to bundle assets into one link to share with clients.

Cons

A built-in connector to SalesForce would be nice.
