Pros

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.

Cons

The upload portal can be confusing. Drag and dropping of files can lead to double uploads or uploading into the wrong folder.

MO

Michael O.

Overall design and website animations feel dated and clunky, empty folders look ugly as well. Definitely a learning curve involved in using Canto.

Canto

Best DAM offering out there

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'm not really sure if you are asking me for a meta review of Capterra as a product or Canto but I would say if it seems like it would fit you definitely go into it. You'll find that with Portfolio you'll be searched based and the customizations are there, but it falls short on some key things Canto can have and that's namely that you can bucket everything into orderly categories that make it really easy for the end user to get at. MediaBeacon is also search based and absolutely infuriating to use. If you don't expect your end user to know what they are looking for before they go into it, you'll want Canto.

Pros

No pros were added to this review

Cons

There are some really odd quirks about it on the web end of serving things up and having to restart Tomcat service and do some really frustrating hoops in setup is a thing, but if you have good support it's all good stuff and the thing is rock solid afterwards. Initial setup of DAMs is frustrating if you don't live in it, but as said in the pros area of my review it is far better than your other options out there (Extensis Portfolio and Esko's MediaBeacon would be the other two you would look at when going for DAM solutions). Gonna note that the reason I tossed the three stars out there on customer support is that it's a product supported by third party resellers, which is totally understandable

Perfect fit for our organization! Fast and easy updates!

Reviewed 7 years ago

We have been using Canto at our organization for at least 4 years now, and we use it internally for organizing and cataloging artwork and externally to show customers designs and availability. Its a great tool and we are always finding new ways of expanding its uses. There is definitely a learning curve getting started, and we are still learning things about the software - features we didn't realize...
