Overall Satisfaction with Canto

We use Canto mainly as storage for our files, to share images with donors, and other departments or external partners, and to create portals for nonprofits to access materials during community events.

Pros

  • Tags
  • Portals
  • Support response time

Cons

  • Share links creation/customization/search
  • Face detection isn't that easy to use
  • Would be nice if there was an option to automatically upload files every night/sync files
  • Face detection, though it doesn't work that well
  • Portals
  • Share links
  • Takes up a lot more time than expected in adding files to Canto
  • Relieves me of having to search on hard drives
  • Helps searching for images based on tags
They are very responsive.
We evaluated Bynder when we were searching for a DAM. We ultimately chose Canto because it made more sense for our organization in terms of the face detection, and how the assets were handled. Bynder was too robust for our needs.

No

Yes

Did Canto live up to sales and marketing promises?

No

Did implementation of Canto go as expected?

No

Would you buy Canto again?

No

Canto is good for sharing files and creating boundaries around the share links. It is good for storing files and the search function works well within the Library. The share links could use some work, and this is where our team spends a lot of our time within Canto. It would be nice is Share Links were customizable links, and if it were easier to search for past share links, via a search bar within the Collection Links section.
