Likelihood to Recommend

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.

WoodWing Assets

WoodWing Assets work exceptionally well in companies where they have a large number of digital files, that they need to manage and search. Media, advertising and marketing companies benefit significantly when using Assets to manage their digital images, video and content as the most approved as well as latest versions are automatically kept of every digital file. Companies that have a small number of digital files, with probably less than 10 staff, probably don't need a system to manage their actual digital files, provided they are in a structured folder base, that everyone can access.

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.

WoodWing Assets

  • Can be a bit expensive when compared to other CDN alternatives such as AWS or Cloudinary
  • Learning curve involved for the user interface/dashboards
  • Lacks more advanced manipulation of assets that can be served dynamically

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.

It is incredibly easy. For an idea on the onboarding or training of a basic user, this is the only system we know of that training takes literally 1 hour, and the basic user is fully up to speed. Very intuitive user experience. Easy ability to share files (simply right click). Easy ability to search for all digital files, and even content within the digital files, if you cant remember what the file name was - just this feature alone saved us hours everyday

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.

WoodWing support has been good, they do feedback quickly when reporting an issue and do keep you up to date with where they are in the process of resolving the support issue. The support team is knowledgeable and take the time to fully understand the issue. I do feel they should have an online support ability to assist with basic user issues, as opposed to having to log a ticket every time, but that would be the only reason I have not given them a 10.

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.

Overall Elvis DAM is a great product although when you compare the solution to other providers of similiar asset CDNs such as Amazon's AWS, Rackspace CDN or Cloudinary it can get quite expensive. This is especially true if you have a team that is at the larger enterprise level in which case you are charged by the user.

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.
