Canto is currently being implemented across several of our creative teams as well as my web content team. We have plans in place to train our creatives (photographers, graphic designers) on how to upload digital assets with a standard operating procedure to make files easy to access. There are a handful of teams in Academics who are being trained on how to upload new versions of existing files used on our websites. Our IT department has utilized Canto's API to be able to pull in our Canto Library within our websites' CMS platform. Eventually, this will replace the need for us to upload and house files within our CMS which will ultimately reduce server load.

Canto is the perfect solution for our image-management needs. It allows us to store, archive, and access new images when we need them with a minimum of fuss. Fast, easy, and effortless to use. The team stays in regular touch to make sure our training is up to date and that we're comfortable with understanding and using new features. Recommended.

Canto is our main image repository for the entire company. We use it two ways, actually: We use a portal option for the general employee population, which contains limited images that we approve for company usage, and we use the main library and give access to select employees who need access to all images for use in various projects, media requests, etc. Canto helps centralize all company images and allows access to employees so it eliminates most individual requests from me.

Canto was extremely easy to implement into our business. Previously, we stored all of our photos/videos/files on the shared drive, external hard drives and servers. Canto has allowed us to ensure all employees who require access to digital assets have access to them with different permission groups. We really like the convenient options for sharing files with external stakeholders, especially the sharing link. It eliminates the need to upload files to dropbox and worry about storage issues.

COOLA began using the Canto platform to easily share assets internally, b2b, and to have a consumer-facing option. While primarily a creative & marketing assets platform in terms of what is stored, our entire company utilizes the system daily. With Canto in place, we are able to automate a lot of requests for assets that normally would've bogged down the creative and marketing teams. Canto solved 3 main issues for us: 1. Organize and store creative and marketing assets remotely on one platform. 2. Allow for automation to our internal team, outside sales, and b2b or other outside vendors. 3. Easily and quickly search for and share assets while also automating licensing for the assets.

We use Canto to store, sort, assign and share files across our department as well as with outside clients. My primary use is to store, sort, access and share files - from images to Word documents. I also share folders with outside clients so that they can view the images and copy without having to login to a third-party tool such as Google Drive, Onedrive or Dropbox.

We use Canto specifically in our department to manage our photo database. However, we do employ it across the organization to share images and documents as well as collect photos from our field personnel. It has also helped streamline our data sharing with a sister company that supports our design and marketing needs.

Our organization uses Canto to organize nearly 50,000 images and other files for use in Communications throughout our grantmaking, recreational, and educational divisions. It allows us to manage our digital assets in a way that our communications department can share them with colleagues, partners, and stakeholders while maintaining editorial control.

Canto is extremely intuitive to learn to use and has been invaluable in streamlining our website operations. We're able to allow colleagues to choose from a curated selection of images and ensure that we're abiding by proper copyright and licensing laws. The end result is a higher-quality selection of imagery across all print and digital avenues that doesn't get too repetitive and stays up-to-date. Canto offers a range of useful functions that we haven't even implemented yet, like automatic watermarking.

The Foundation runs a philanthropy division, but also a public park with museums, gardens, and a golf course. I wish there were a way to socialize the image tagging process by allowing consumer-level accounts to tag images on their own, since the communications department can't be a subject matter expert in all of these realms, but we've found easy workarounds through internal training and the functionality that Canto has built-in.

We use Canto to store all of our digital assets, from stock photography, product labels, video, marketing assets like brochures, and even headshots! Our entire company uses Canto in various ways depending on their department. Before Canto, we were storing our files on various hard drives - and each time we needed something we'd play everyone's fun game of "who has it", "who has the latest version", and "where are the attachments to this InDesign file". Now, everyone has the ability to log in and quickly keyword search for exactly what they are looking for.

Canto is being used within the Fashion sector of the company, specifically in the marketing department. We had previously had a lot of problems with gathering content from clients + keeping the content organized. Canto has helped us streamline the process and we have gained hours of the day back with the platform, especially to gather content. The tagging functionality is amazing - we no longer have to email back and forth with other coworkers who need specific content, they can simply log on to canto and find exactly what they are looking for within minutes - it's AMAZING.

Canto is all I need to manage and organize my digital data. Through this tool, I am capable of piling up the data so that I do not have to search in the time of need. In addition, I have made folders about the various categories of digital data and it has made it easy searching especially when I have to share any file with my team members. This is a very user-friendly tool with the simplest interface. Canto has shown me a direct route about how we can share the data on my social media because it provides me data integrations.

Currently we are using Canto at the department level, but we plan to use it company-wide in the near future. We house all company assets, from logos and graphic files to photos and video. Our old file structure grew quickly over time, and it became very difficult to pinpoint an asset.

Our Communications team uses Canto to store and organize our photos for different campaigns. We share photos across our organization and with folks outside our organization regularly. Canto helps us to quickly find photos using the search function, allows us to have people outside our team upload and download photos, and helps us only share what we need to.

We are excited to use Canto for the management of our digital marketing assets for ease of searchability and consistency for our teams. It is currently being used by our Marketing teams, but we anticipate it being used by many more departments. It is very hard to search for the right stock photo within a folder, and it is impossible to keep up with the licensing. Canto solves both issues.

We are a global company currently operating in 50+ countries. All of our content and marketing materials are created in our Mexico City office. We needed a tool to centralize all assets, and make them available to our staff all around the world, working for different areas within the company, and working in different time zones.

Canto has helped us create a platform to catalogue our vast library of product images on our recently developed new website in a way that customers can use helpful keyword searches and filters to find examples of our work to inspire them. It addresses the issue of us having too many digital assets without the means to easily pick out what is relevant in different situations.

We purchased Canto as a solution for our massive library of images and graphic design files. It's being used by everyone internally and will be used by our clients once we set those portals up so they have better immediate access to image files. Our pre-existing database was messy and difficult to work through, where Canto allows us to keep everything in one spot with amazing search functionality for ease of use.
