Canto

Canto is ideal for companies that have a lot of items to keep tabs on, such as sales collateral or other materials needed internally. Canto is great for corporate use because everyone can access it easily via a simple link. However, there are times when finding items in Canto was difficult, but honestly, that is probably more user error than anything (such as naming conventions and whatnot). All in all, Canto is a very good product.

Cloudinary handles pretty much anything you have related to images. From serving them up efficiently to adding transformations on the fly, there's really little this service doesn't do. Their pricing plans allow you to grow into the right levels and their website dashboards are very helpful. I would easily recommend this for all but the simplest of use cases.

Pros

Canto

  • Facial recognition technology helps us tag key staff automatically.
  • The in-tool search and tagging features are very robust, allowing us to find the specific assets we need fast.
  • The AI driven auto tagging is a nice addition and helps broaden what we can look for.
  • The ability for outside vendors to seamlessly upload content straight into the tool saves a lot of work for us.
  • The ability to selectively share out specific assets or folders with other departments or principals is a great way to really capitalize on our assets without creating extra work for my team.

Cloudinary

  • Cloudinary is the best in the market for photo and video transformations.
  • Cloudinary takes customer's requests for special features and implements them very quickly.

Cons

Canto

  • The download button is hard to find, a little obscure and I'm finding that employees are having a hard time figuring out how to download images without help/instructions.
  • I had to write up detailed instructions for employees on how to use Canto. It's not exactly user-friendly and self-explanatory upon first use. You have to use it a while to fully understand all capabilities.
  • When you do a search, there's the option where if you mouse over the search icon, a tool pops up allowing you to "search within" and the option to select other search filters. This is not easily findable. I have to tell people about it to narrow their search.
Luci Fortune | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cloudinary

  • Their API does require URLs that can get quite lengthy and not always easy to parse on sight.
  • Documentation on how transformations work and what they actually do to your image could be clearer (what does force_strip actually mean?).
  • Although a free tier exists and is quite generous, should you need to acquire a premium plan for your needs the pricing at scale can climb quickly.

I was able to demo almost every significant DAM service while trying to choose what platform to adopt for the company and Canto won the race by far. They are better than other DAM services and their reps are always responsive and ready to help in any way they can, which is huge when you are moving an entire company to the platform. The Canto team has also been able to take our feedback and work on larger projects to make the platform better for us and other users by adding features that no other DAM is utilizing

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.

Cloudinary is very easy to use and offers fast way to upload your images, files and videos to their servers. Then they give you quick ways t implement those files or images onto your website using their API or just a normal URL. They also give you very fast ways to make edits to those files and include them in the url.

The Support for Canto has done an outstanding job. The support team is great to work with and easy to communicate with. They have been there every step of the way and have really made this a smooth transition for us. I would say their amazing support is what sold us on the product.

We rarely use their support. But when we need it they are always there. They provide great consultation and suggestions to help us manage our costs and resources better. In the last 8 years perhaps we have contacted them 3 or 4 times - which is really really great

We didn't have a thorough enough plan for ownership of uploading and tagging and some of our tags were inconsistent which led to some regression in our usage. We tightened up that plan on our end and spoke with support team on Canto's end to establish some best practices and have a much better workflow now.

Alternatives Considered

Canto

Google photos has an edge on Canto regarding photo editing and enhancement; I prefer Google Photo Album's share links. Also, Google photo album links look better on a mobile device and are easier to scroll for clients when browsing photos. I think Canto could find ways to improve its mobile sharing and scrolling features.

Cloudinary seemed to be the most sophisticated with the most documentation and platform support. Other solutions seemed to be a lot harder to implement, however, due to the good documentation and API samples on their GitHub we were able to implement it nicely. Additionally, they have a lot of really well-known brands using them like Wired, Sky News, and eBay which gave us a lot of confidence that this was a good robust solution to use and to help others with

Return on Investment

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.

  • Images are essential to our product and using Cloudinary has allowed us to serve them up in a cost-effective and efficient way. Not having to worry about your images frees you up to tackle the real challenges for your product.
