Flight Fall 2014 by Canto simplifies control and accessibility of digital assets in the cloud.

Share important files anytime, from anywhere.

Easily create branded portals to share visual content with Flight by Canto.

Canto, a leading provider of digital asset management (DAM) solutions, today announced the release of Flight Fall 2014. Flight is a Software as a Service (SaaS) system for businesses to manage the growing volume of rich media. The recent updates to Flight include shared portals, updates to the Flight iPad app, enhanced visual reporting, the introduction of User Groups and the ability to post directly to social media outlets.

The release continues on its promise of delivering simple, beautiful and enterprise-strength software for today’s busy professionals.

“With the Fall 2014 release of Flight we introduce a clean way for brand marketers to share files and collaborate with contractors and agencies using the new portal feature, while doing so in a branded tool,” commented Leslie Weller, Marketing Director at Canto. She continued, “Being able to not only work in a branded interface, but also being able to share collections of files from a branded environment is a must-have for many brand advocates turning away from generic online file sharing tools.”

Designed to minimize clicks and get users to their branded assets quickly, Flight speeds everyday workflows by giving people time to devote to their core tasks rather than searching for files. Sales teams can access the latest videos, presentations and product sheets in the field with the Flight iPad app. Field agents may shoot video and take pictures then upload files into Flight, making those files instantly accessible to the back office for repurposing on the website, across social media or in any type of documentation. C-level executives may take advantage of Flight’s secure, mobile access to board presentations, annual reports and other corporate content – all from a branded portal set up specifically for executives.

Administrators will find benefit from Flight’s broader reporting capabilities that offer both a graphical representation for summary results and trend analysis as well as a detailed tabular depiction. Another great productivity feature is the introduction of Groups in Flight, which allows administrators to grant access rights to groups as a whole as opposed to manually performing this task for each individual user.

The recent release of Canto Flight for cloud digital asset management add the following features to simplify the management of visual content:

  • Portals – share content with public or private audiences that you choose
  • Groups – assign users to groups for permissioning
  • Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook – push images directly to these social channels
  • Version history – not only track revision history, but also make previous versions current if needed
  • Social workflow - @mention collaborators to kickoff a social workflow in Flight
