Overall Satisfaction with Canto

Canto is currently being used primarily by the marketing team, with future plans being to open it up to the company at large. Our previous media library was just file explorer within Windows, which bogged down searches and wasted time. Canto cuts down on search time and ensures a backup of data should our internal servers fail.
  • Search functions
  • Facial recognition
  • Client portals
  • Metadata entry
  • Smart or auto tags
  • 3rd party app integration
  • Workplace efficiency for marketing has gone up.
  • The burden of image searches is now spread out.
  • Reliable backup in case of power outage.
Canto was both the most comprehensive and involved in the integration process of the products that were evaluated. Having a guiding hand while we integrated our large library ended up being essential. The cost became worth it because of that.
Canto support has always been quick and easy to reach out to. There have been a few bugs here or there but they've always escalated it with a resulting fix surprisingly fast. On top of that, their integration help and mentor through the uploading process was a nice bonus. Our process took months, so it was nice to have a voice ready to respond to questions when we needed it.

Canto is well suited if your media library is particularly large with no clear way of organization. For instance, if you or your company regularly take project photos or if you run a business focused around media. The closed in, drill down nature of OS file libraries don't work well with large libraries of photos and videos. Instead, Canto opens it up by relying on search functions and key words, cutting down on search time drastically.

Canto is less appropriate if your media structure can be neatly organized within folders and easily found in such a way or if your media library just isn't large enough. It excels at making thousands of different files find-able, so naturally, if you don't have that problem, the price certainly isn't worth it.
