Canto’s CDG release continues the commitment to provide comprehensive features while never compromising user experience

San Francisco, CA – April 26, 2017 – Canto, a leader in digital asset management, is pleased to announce that the newest version of Canto is now available with a variety of new features designed to provide marketing teams with a more efficient way to organize, manage and share brand assets such as images, videos, logos and design files.

Canto employs AWS Rekognition’s deep learning capabilities to feature exciting new Smart Tags technology. Also new in Canto are: Google Analytics™ integration, Adobe™ InDesign CC 2017 support, more language support and optimized global performance with additional international Amazon S3 data storage locations.

“We continue to add a rich set of features into Canto, yet we do it in a very intuitive way, to serve the needs of today’s busy marketers,” stated Jack McGannon, CEO of Canto. “Our customers are increasingly using Canto in more sophisticated and scalable ways – as an example, supporting 5,000 users or more across their organizations. Even in light of this, Canto continues to put the power in the hands of the business user by designing capabilities so that there is no requirement for IT support and specialized power users.”

Canto introduces the following new features:

  • Smart Tags – built on deep learning from AWS Rekognition, Canto saves time by detecting objects and auto-suggesting keywords with associated confidence scores
  • Google Analytics integration gives greater insights into asset usage
  • Canto InDesign plugin now supports Adobe InDesign CC 2017
