Pros

The Canto support team is outstanding and has been there for us every step of the way. We are extremely happy with the training for this program and it has been a smooth transition.
I love the responsiveness and friendly nature of the Canto team. This is integral to my creative post-production process.
We love that this software implements facial recognition. This is very important for our usage as we need to be able to just type someone's name and get all their results for marketing purposes.

Pros

Ease of managing over 70,000+ assets in one easy to navigate and organized space. Amazing support staff who take the time to address custom concerns and find workable solutions.
Had the best experience with the Customer Service. They are very kind, available and helpful.
There's always a representative available within minutes via their chat, and they help me resolve issues quickly. Overall, I'm happy with the software.

Cons

The upload portal can be confusing. Drag and dropping of files can lead to double uploads or uploading into the wrong folder.
Overall design and website animations feel dated and clunky, empty folders look ugly as well. Definitely a learning curve involved in using Canto.
I had a few problems using the tagging feature.

Cons

Now our main problem is just finding the time to transfer and organize our huge backlog, instead of fighting with the software as we had in the past.
We have thousands and thousands of photos that had previously been stored in a bunch of different places, haphazardly categorized, not syncing properly, and overrunning our hard drive space.
Pics.io is a newer platform compared to some other DAM systems, so it might be missing features for some people.
