Canto

Canto is a great option for creative teams who want to move their files (graphics, raw images, edited images, PDFs, documents, etc.) off of an organization's server. It can be an incredible warehouse of cloud storage for old versions of files as well as creating a one-stop-shop for all master versions of files. Canto is also helpful for IT teams who want to reduce server load on their websites. It is a great third-party option if you have the capabilities to either utilize an API connection or to train website content admins on uploading files here. You can also utilize some of their other tools for creatives to create interactive style guides for an organization's branding. It is a robust digital asset management platform, where the only exception might be housing/sharing video content.

ImageKit.io

E-Commerce is a perfect example where a service like ImageKit.io, is well suited. It takes a lot of the guesswork related to browser image format support, correct image dimensions for every kind of device, away from the developer. Thus reducing the need for maintaining code ourselves to check for and deliver an image for every user and his specific browser. This reduces code maintenance time in the long run and less custom code will ensure stability after integration for our online store running on OpenCart 3.

Pros

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.

ImageKit.io

  • Automatically convert images for fast delivery based on browser support and network quality.
  • Well-documented integration documentation that is easy to follow when getting started with your implementation.
  • Easy to navigate user dashboard for setup and management of server origins and account settings. The usage analytics page is also handy to track and fix any 404 errors there might be for an image/s.

Cons

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.

ImageKit.io

  • The Usage Analytics page could be laid out a little better and include filtering options, options may include path, country, IP Address, etc.
  • The ability to add an additional user to the starter plan would be great to illustrate the possibility to new customers.
  • The API Reference guide could include some more section-specific code examples for each of the supported technology stacks.

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 extremely easy to use as long as descriptions and tags are organized. Just type what you are looking for and it will pop up. We have team members who are not very high tech be able to learn it within a day. Very intuitive and user-friendly for the whole company.

I've had to reach out to support only the one time, but they were friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. They were able to address my issue and solve my problem on one phone call, and set up a way to ensure the issue would not happen again. Honestly, their support is one of the main reasons I would suggest this platform.

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

Canto

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.

ImageKit.io

The main consideration for our choice was to be able to optimize and deliver the images from the server they are stored on without needing to move or change the current product upload workflow for our Marketing team. This is where ImageKit.io provided the best solution at the time we evaluated the options available in the market.

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.

ImageKit.io

  • Our code has become easier to maintain, we no longer need to let the backend generate thumbnails
  • Our site speed up significantly, which boosted our SEO ranking
  • We had a similar solution built in-house on AWS lambda, but we no longer have the headache to maintain this solution ourselves.
