Pros

I like that Widen is an easy way to find assets. It is helpful for a large company--because everyone knows where to find the assets that they need.
It's works great, the API documentation is good and Widen has given excellent support on it.
Widen is a terrific tool for our global team. We are able to have 24/7 access to all our assets no matter where we are in the world.

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.
I love the responsiveness and friendly nature of the Canto team. This is integral to my creative post-production process.
I love the ability to collaborate with my team and through different teams and have everyone be able to access our digital assets.

Cons

Sometimes it gives corrupted error. I wished it could have given the corrupt error while I am uploading files.
My biggest complaint is with my own team because I keep having to reset people's passwords for the site because they forget them.
I think the one thing that I struggle with was the update on how to upload images.

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.
