Product Details

What is Canto?

Canto enables users to collect, manage and share digital content from anywhere. A digital asset management solution, Canto helps brands in all industries take control of their content libraries and get more out of their digital assets.

A CENTRAL LOCATION FOR DIGITAL ASSETS No more digging through folders and hunting down files. Canto is a hub for digital content – including photos, videos, collateral, and other digital assets are where they are needed.

FIND FILES IN SECONDS Users can organize content in any way desired, and users don’t need to dig through folders to find what is needed. With advanced features like smart tags and facial recognition, the entire library is fully searchable.

COLLECT AND SHARE DIGITAL CONTENT WITH ANYONE Manage the flow of assets in and out of an organization’s library. Upload links make it easier to add content to a library, and unlimited sharing portals allow users to deliver polished, curated collections to any audience.

COLLABORATE To share assets with other teams, external partners and collaborators anywhere in the world. Flexible permissions ensure everyone can access everything they need – and nothing they shouldn’t.

MANAGE A BRAND Approval features keep users in control of what content goes out into the world. Avoid embarrassing mix-ups with version controls and expiration dates, and mitigate business risks with digital rights management tools.

A TOOL THAT FITS ITS TEAM With its configuration options, Canto adapts to how a team works. Plus, out-of-the box integrations snap into the tools a team already uses – including Slack, Microsoft, Adobe Creative Cloud, and others.

FULL VIDEO COMPATIBILITY Canto has a whole host of features designed just for video – including full video previews, timestamped annotations and smart tags, 360° video support, and trimming features to extract just the excerpts needed.

Canto is not overly user-friendly. I do not love the internal logic and internal organization system. It's also fairly expensive for limited users. It's a classic case of not doing enough research to determine where actual users go to find relevant information/system preferences internally. It is also fairly limited on number of portals available.

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.

Canto passes the test for what we needed it to do. There are better products out there, but the price for those products makes them unreasonable for the basic functionality of a DAM system that we needed.

Canto lacks functionality that would make it a tough competitor, especially for the price point, of the other products. But product development seems to not be focused on the areas that need it the most.

Overall, Canto is a good product and does what we need it to do. But there is room for improvement.

The user experience is very good and the user is able to use the tool even without dedicated training. The implemented logics are very intuitive and easy to understand even for a non-expert and familiar user on digital platforms. The only remark is on the interface which is not very modern.

I have used Canto for over three years and appreciate/value everything about it. I like that we can house thousands of pieces of content in one place and trust that it is being protected and managed well. Canto has been very proactive to ensure that we are receiving the best customer service possible, and we appreciate that.

The interface is clean, clear, and intuitive, which is blatant in the user experience. As an admin, I have so many tools available, being able to set custom keywords and metadata for individual pieces, with even the description field on each asset being searchable.

There are a few changes I'd make to the platform, but overall, it's very useful. I'd like to see it have more options in terms of how you can visually set up your library and the folders and albums within it. I'd also like to see better options for sharing folders that don't require me to check a box for every image.

Of all the cons I mention, the resolution issue needs to be addressed first and foremost. And the search function is not as helpful as I know it could be. Uploading pictures/assets is a breeze, and if you know where to look, finding things isn't bad. However, the search could be more dynamic.

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.

As a power user, I find it very easy to use and navigate and I can accomplish what I need to very quickly. New users typically need a walk-through to get comfortable (which has never been an issue).

Canto incorporates easy drag-and-drop features to create your library. It also makes it simple to share said content in customizable ways to suit users' needs. The use of portals empowers the organization to create an easy path for end-consumers to engage with the organization's shareable content.

It is extremely user friendly. Most of our new users require very little, if any, training to get registered and start searching for--and downloading--the assets that they need.

The keywords and metadata features are great, but the platform itself could be more user friendly. Also, the website, unfortunately, runs a little bit slow and our company has experienced a few glitches. The Customer Support team has always been quick and very helpful in solving these issues.

As someone who uses Canto daily I am always impressed by the ease of use. Everything is well thought out and well placed. It is easy to store and to find assets, easy to tag them and assign them to the correct areas. You can easily update images, create collections and share these with collogues. Overall brilliant software that keeps asset management simple and straightforward.
