Bynder

We have numerous renderings for some of our properties that are constantly being updated. It was hard to keep track of the most current rendering since it lived in multiple locations with various employees. Creating a central location where we can regularly update the renderings without having to add a new file and re-upload solved the issue of questioning whether the rendering you were looking at was correct.

Canto

Canto is and has been our go-to web DAM for several years now for our internal files as well as files we share with our clients via portals and we are quite pleased! I can't say it needs any improvement, other than perhaps training our internal department how to organize our files better. I highly recommend Canto. Plus, their customer service is amazing.

Pros

Bynder

  • Extracting content is where Bynder shines. My previous EverNote account reminded me of the last scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark -- warehouse full of stuff where clearly everything was lost once it was put in there. Bynder makes it easy to find and extract information especially because of the thumbnail views aided by the categorization tools. Since you can use these in combination everything is basically a complex Boolean search without needing to know how to write a complex Boolean Search.
  • Easy I/O. Getting information into and out of Bynder is really easy -- follows the "don't make me think" rule. visual cues and clear buttons, etc. In fact, since I use multiple systems, I find it easiest to actually do file transfer TO MYSELF via Bynder rather than download or email files between my PC and Mac for example. That's how easy it is.
  • Categories, tagging, last-used, most-frequent, hide/show -- there's a lot of flexibility in organizing your content. Technically, this kind of thing exists in every tool I've ever used... but it's the implementation that matters. UI design is vital to making this a valuable tool as opposed to a dreary step of "file retrieval".

Canto

  • Canto consistently updates it's software, so they're always making it better and more efficient, user-friendly, etc.
  • Provides a portal option that helps you control how your images are being displayed to users, which images can be seen and gives an aesthetic version for employees.
  • Canto is very responsive to support requests, ticket submissions, etc., and will work with you until your problem is resolved.
  • There's no size limit on files that you can upload.
  • It works fairly quickly when uploading images.

Cons

Bynder

  • Link Sharing: One thing I wish Bynder had was quick link sharing for images or collections of images to share outside of Bynder. Currently you have to create a collection and send it via email to the person you want to view it. Otherwise you can make it public and share a link but then that collection technically can be viewed or downloaded by anyone. Since I'm used to the functionality of Dropbox, this is one thing that I feel is lacking.
  • Public Media Center: Along the lines of the last comment about link sharing; one thing that would be helpful is a public media center. If we were able to tag what photos we would want to include there, along with downloadable logos, guidelines, PR, etc. There are workarounds but the functionality doesn't quite exist.
  • Automatic Translations: We opted to keep all of our metadata and tagging in English, as most of our International partners do speak some English; however, it would have been nice to have an option to automatically translate any metadata/tagging for certain languages. We did have the option of automatically translating the main menu buttons but that wasn't much help. If we wanted metadata/tagging in other languages we'd have to input it manually for thousands of assets.

Canto

  • The option to make a single file downloadable or not. We have some highly sensitive files and some we don't want people to be able to download but be able to look at. So it would be nice if we could make a single file not downloadable. They do have other options like terms of use or watermarks but it [would] be nice if that was a feature. You could do this but only in bulk, so you'd have to make all files not downloadable.
  • Their style guide option - being able to use a single image for the style guide instead of the whole folder or file.
  • I think the different language option could be built out a little better.

We are very likely to renew our service with Canto. This is because of the support we have received and what we have seen Canto do so far for our company. We are finally able to organize our assets well and maintain governance over all of our digital assets. It has eliminated time difference issues and is equipping people within our company with a lot of content for them to use and push.

It is incredibly user-friendly and easy to navigate. Once you poke around, you intuitively learn how to use the platform. Our company provided training sessions for all employees during our official roll-out, and everyone seemed to have a good grasp on how to navigate this platform. We have yet to hear about an employee having difficulty using Bynder, which is a big win

Canto is about as easy to use as it gets. I have personally trained a handful of employees who are unfamiliar with DAM/marketing SaaS technology on how to use the platform for their needs. These trainings only take about half an hour (given they are using a very limited set of Canto's features), and afterward, they are pretty well-equipped to use the platform.

When we were getting ready to switch vendors, WebDAM wasn't very responsive to my questions or my needs. They also sent me all the files on an external drive that was formatted for Mac and didn't even think to verify whether I had a PC (which I did) so the external drive was useless and I had to wait another week to get the updated external drive that was formatted for a PC that I could then use.

The customer service at Canto is great. If I ever had a question, someone from the team would get back to me in a day. They always make time to schedule a call to address all your issues and concerns. I have enjoyed working with the staff at Canto for their professionalism and flexibility!

We should have planned and identified ingest and content librarian during transfer and launch. Our admins wear other hats and accountability and getting to planned milestones lagged a bit due to this.

Alternatives Considered

Bynder

WebDAM and Bynder merged, so we didn't have to choose between them. We found these two had the best templating functions, which was a must have for our clients. Their permissions and user group management also seem to be the most robust. We found their support, including site, documents and staff to be the most responsive

The decision wasn't really up to me; it was up to our team's photographer. I actually wanted to use Google Drive initially, just because I thought it would be the easiest option and would integrate well with what we already use, but I have been pleasantly surprised by how easy Canto is to use. I've been very pleased with it.

Return on Investment

Bynder

  • More polished and compelling national marketing pieces due to greater and better use of photos.
  • More polished and compelling regional marketing pieces due to regional staff members ability to access assets directly and select from full bank.
  • Greater efficiency when designing pieces (easy to share assets with external designers).
  • Increased use of marketing assets across regions due to sharability.

Canto

  • As of right now, we are still in the process of transitioning so I do not know any details on overall business effectiveness or any hard numbers. But as of now it seems very capable of handling the amount of information my company holds.
  • I think it is an amazing perk that you can literally upload any type of file on Canto, and then you can open any type of file on Canto as well. It is amazing to find a product that lets you open and view CAD or DWG files without having the actual program!
  • The idea behind having our information more at everyone's fingertips and helping productivity has boosted moral and people are optimistic.
