Canto offers two leading digital asset management platforms. Flight by Canto is a scalable, cost-efficient digital asset management system built for teams. Cumulus is an enterprise digital asset management platform that can be extended throughout the enterprise.
Canto's DAM solutions allow businesses to better organize and publish brand assets across multiple platforms. T

Flight is a cloud-based SaaS solution. Cumulus can be deployed on premise or offered as a hybrid solution. DAM suits multiple industries including government, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, telecommunication, transportation and sports.

Cumulus offers a branded self-service portal that allows users to share digital assets. The portal supports automated search engine optimization functionality to search and find digital assets. Users can also filter search results and access large visual purviews to quickly locate the required asset. The solution further supports metadata technology that allows users to find files easily. Metadata extraction supports all the major metadata standards such as XMP & IPTC and it can also automatically suggest specific metadata like resolution, color mode, image dimensions and so on. It allows users to create metadata fields that include drop-down lists, radio buttons, color labels etc. for workflows and database.

The analysis and reporting feature of Canto's digital asset management systems allow businesses to view the details of all the people who have downloaded, printed, edited or emailed any format of all the assets. Users can further use data analytics to make strategic decisions on DAM strategy. Though the products can be accessed from multiple platforms and through various devices, the security is not compromised. Encryption is used for secure logins and user requests are processed through Java web applications. Some key clients include Benefit Cosmetics, American Red Cross, Wells Fargo, Country Music Awards, Bosch Rexroth AG, Best Western Hotels, Deutsche Lufthansa, Honda Motor and the Dallas Cowboys.

Overall Great Program!

30/01/2017

We use Cumulus for all of our photo gallery needs at the Florida Museum. Overall, it is very easy to navigate and choose which photos you want to use. Downloading individual photos can be time-consuming, but the "Collection Basket" feature allows you to choose multiple photos, start the download, and move on to other things while you wait. The website also offers multiple viewing options for quick navigation. Would definitely recommend Cumulus to others.

Pros

Easy to navigate. Great gallery views. Downloading and sharing are a breeze.

Cons

Long download times.

Evolving from fileserver clutter to valuable DAM-catalogues and -workflows

03/01/2017

Cumulus helped us to get back control over our assets. The first step was to replace file servers as a silo for media assets by a sophisticated catalog solution. Within Cumulus we could build a metadata model that really represents the structure of information we need in order to manage assets in every context. Even challenges like assuring consistency of used terminology and translating metadata could be handled by using the standard functionality of Cumulus. Now we have a solid basis to meet the demands of media-enriched online marketing towards visual, social, and video networks.

Pros

It's a standard software that allows customizing by configuring and without calling for programmers. The web interface became really powerful and facilitates workflows with external contributors, press contacts, and prospective clients.

Cons

Workgroup edition requires a costly upgrade to provide functionality for managing user groups.

Perfect digital asset management software for our company with many divisions and different needs

09/12/2016

We´ve been using cumulus from canto since ... 4 years in our company. The time before the organization of our marketing material was not ideal. It was a problem to exchange data from division to division (national and international) - we used memory sticks or hard disks. For me, as a windows user, it was impossible to exchange data with a mac user - because we did not use the same network. Data was outworn and there was no version control or right system. Since we use cumulus this belongs to the past! The software is extremely customizable and canto reacts very fast and professional to our needs. We`ve created wonderful processes - for example between cumulus and jira (a bug- und issue-tracking-system from other software) - for example between our online marketing and graphic design divisions for the creation of web pages or newsletter. I can count a lot of examples :) !!! We use cumulus in processes with external partners like design agency, freelancer, and photographers. They use the improved web client. Since we use cumulus we have access to data from everywhere - this is a great advantage. We love the search function based on keywords (in any language). Cumulus will be permanently enhanced - the version 9.1 has a great adobe integration. A lot of people in my company use the batch processing function. Also, the comment function is a great advantage. We daily use it and we love it. It has improved our work!

Pros

- endless possibilities - answers for every case of use

Mostly good, but occasionally buggy

21/11/2016

I use the Canto Cumulus DAM system and it works well most of the time. I like the options for configuring the search results, but sometimes the download feature doesn't work. The lightbox/cart feature also sometimes fails to empty when you tell it to.

DAM is all around

04/11/2016

Cumulus offers a great product to manage all the assets we have here in the company. You cn store, share, modify, optimize assets (e.g. pictures, videos, documents) and also use these asets in other applications without storing it twice. It really helps us to manage the assets itself and also their meta data, digital rights and so on. Absolutely recommendable and a must have!

Perfect for our needs

25/10/2016

After nearly two years of using the software i can say that this DAM fits perfect to our needs. The migration of the old DAM system was accompanied by Canto very professional. The handling of more than 200k of highres assets in several portals is fast and easy. Managing the files with the native or web client is fast and intuitive. Working together with the guys from Canto showed us how close they are to their product. Customized features like an InDesign package download were no problem. The good integration of the software into InDesign was one main reason for the purchase. Using the system as a distribution platform and a collaboration platform helps us a lot to do our work in a very effective way. Until now a very reliable system. Due to the versatile possibilities the software offers, sometimes the handling seems a bit complex. All in all we are very happy with this system and looking forward to a DAM good future.

Pros

Fast, reliable, many features, company is very close to the product

Cons

Support sometimes takes its time, self managing the system is difficult because of extensive features
