Unlock your team and unleash your brand with digital asset management
Canto Digital Asset Management software has organization features designed to simplify how you store and manage your media library. Smart Albums automatically sort your digital assets by file types. Keywords and tags provide contextual labeling, and folders and albums offer powerful sorting options.
Canto also gives your Admin-level users a visual dashboard to see user activity and report on your media library’s effectiveness. Arrange report widgets on your custom dashboard to display everything from file storage and logins to top search terms and downloads.
We do a lot of print ads, recipe cards and coupons that are designed in Adobe Illustrator. Being able to access the Canto image library right in Illustrator is pretty handy.
The search and filter tools are pretty magical. To be able to filter down into set criteria based on how we know people are going to use the assets is really useful.
Photographers send us fantastic photos from all over the world but these images were often being stored on individual hard drives, Dropbox and SharePoint. Our assets were scattered and unorganized.
We realized we needed a system that worked better for us and to unpack the giant digital assets we already have. Canto has really helped us be more agile in our asset development Now we’re able to communicate our visual diversity much more than we could with the old system,
Not only are we producing high-quality materials, but we’re producing a large quantity. We need tools that allow us to meet the volume expectations that we set for ourselves, and to be able to do that at a high quality. Our media had been all over the place for a while with different libraries and folder structures in different organizational systems. Giving people access to assets they needed was always difficult.
A lot of people kept their pictures on cell phones or in email folders and hoped that they could find what they needed through a keyword search. People were all over the map with it. We didn’t have one synchronized area other than our SharePoint site, which was limiting.
The structure of everything is fluid and dynamic, but Canto flexes to our needs, which is really nice. As an example, one of our departments is Rehabilitation Science and Technology. Within that department, there are two or three programs that rely heavily on Canto for research and continuing education purposes. They need to be able to share content at different permission levels and to catalog and find it quickly. They have the structure set up to include a bunch of albums, and there’s several different folders that those albums are housed within. It’s a lot more microscopic in terms of how they are set up.
