During our research for a product, we tested several different products including Intelligence Bank, Image Relay, Extensis and Box. Some of them could not provide us with a sandbox to test on our own so they were immediately eliminated. We had a set of requirements that we developed and most could did not pass that level. Requirements included the ability to control what users can and can't do, such as delete images, upload images into the main library without an admin reviewing first, cloud-based and where the servers were located with respect to our location, a backup plan if the servers went down, would we be able to download or retrieve ALL of our images back if in the future we decided to leave Canto.

Canto has taken our business to that next step which has streamlined our processing power and asset availability to our retailers. Time is important and having that ability to utilize this tool efficiently has help our business grow. Putting the time into knowing how the system works and the reason why certain things were created within Canto has made the transition and learning curve very easy for us.

We evaluated a few other digital asset management systems including Dropbox, Adobe, Bynder, and Aprimo. Our checklist was to find a system that would allow us to simply keyword tag, search, share, and store - all visually with ease. Canto checked all of those boxes for us. There were aspects we liked about the other systems, but none had everything we were looking for - except Canto.

We didnt really have a system we had worked with. We were working just by gathering content through email and saving in our server in folders. We used the photo editor in our computers to edit photos and select what we wanted - which is why the platform was such a great investment for us.

Canto allows us to more easily find things without digging through folders. It also helps us share photos quicker and easier. We don't have to share a whole folder or worry about folder permissions, we can share just what we need to with a link.

We did a benchmarking with different platforms which provide a very similar service. Narrowed down to 3, and after evaluating pricing, customization options, number of users; Canto was the best choice. The platform was the most flexible one and which gave us the opportunity to customize our platforms for our specific needs.

Canto offers much more value for the money spent. The other DAM tools that we evaluated were great and seemed like excellent options but nothing compared to Canto’s bang for the buck. Canto has everything you need built right in without the need for ridiculously expensive add-ons. It’s less expensive and serves all the purposes we need. Plus we love the team.

These two products are quite a bit different in what they provide but they were solving some of the problems that we solve with Canto. Canto does what these products do but so much more. Canto allows for so many ways to organize, categorize, share, and access your content. Dropbox and Google Drive more or less take your file structure on your computer and put it in the cloud.

In the past, I've used Dropbox, Box, and a number of other free FTP apps. None of them compare to the ease of use, capability, and versatility that Canto provides. The search capabilities of Canto are much more robust. I've had far fewer issues with sharing content.
