Canto, a leading provider of digital asset management software and professional services, today announced the general availability of Cumulus 9.0.2. Cumulus 9.0.2 represents the second incremental release since version 9 debuted in late October 2013 – marking a shift from historically lengthy development cycles to more frequent software releases.
Cumulus 9.0.2 extends Canto’s vision of delivering “consumerized” digital asset management software for the enterprise. “At Canto, it’s not just about building robust products. It’s about the philosophy behind those products,” stated Jack McGannon, CEO of Canto. He continued, “Today’s business users expect tools that reflect the simplicity and ease-of-use found in consumer-based products. And yet, power users must have a means to handle complex tasks and workflow essential to their business success. Cumulus stands taller than any other digital asset management system on the market when it comes to satisfying needs for both simplicity and sophistication while remaining a true DAM technology.”
Cumulus 9.0.2 is designed for those who contribute to and manage large volumes of media files, especially organizations challenged with leveraging growing libraries of rich content – such as photos, images, videos, audio files, documents, presentations and more. From tagging and copyrights to searching and archiving, Cumulus 9.0.2 provides the capabilities needed to manage all these files seamlessly.
Cumulus 9.0.2 makes it easier for organizations to track, locate and repurpose valuable content across the enterprise and outside the organization with specified permissions, as needed. “Our customers are pleased that with Canto’s new development process, we are able to respond more rapidly to customer feedback,” commented Dr. Sebastian Stein, Cumulus Product Manager at Canto. Stein continued, “Within one month, we were able to make the new Cumulus Web UI responsive, allow users to apply metadata templates to files from the new UI and be able to see all images contained within a PDF and see their relationships.”
Canto will host a complimentary live Webinar showcasing the new Cumulus 9 features on Wednesday, January 29 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET, click here for registration information.
