Digital Asset Management, Collaborative Workflow & Project Management
Long gone are the days when a DAM system was used to simply catalog or archive digital assets for quick retrieval and re-use. Today’s modern DAM solutions have to support complex workflow collaboration and project management issues as well. That’s why Canto Cumulus has been going through a steady evolution of features that support this critical role in demanding graphics production environments.

Approvals Made Easy
Cumulus includes built-in workflow management tools, so you can easily create asset approval workflows requiring sign-off from stakeholders such as creative and legal. Approval workflows leverage visual drawing tools and text annotations dramatically speeding revision cycles. Configure the stages, activities and direct the flow. This will fast become the Inbox for all of your users to address waiting tasks.

Simple Approval Workflow

Global Collaboration
With Cumulus, you can easily share critical assets with freelancers, outside agencies, and partners via the easy-to-use Web Client which is ideal for remote or home-based workers. There are also the Sites and Portals web interfaces geared to consumers which provides access to assets without consuming a Cumulus license. There is no limit on the number of Web visitors you can permit to access your metadata and files. Cumulus instantly opens your archives to the world, using user accounts, and access restrictions you set in place.

InDesign Client

Forget Cumulus!! Browse through your content housed in Cumulus directly from InDesign. Cluster and combine the panels as you like and save the arrangement in your personal workspace.

Full versioning support and 2 way movement of assets between InDesign and Cumulus.

Print Distribution Portals
Cumulus has very strong APIs which have yielded 100's of 3rd party customized products. Otecd has built print distribution portals for corporate entities to distribute POS collateral likes signs to retail outlets in batches. This makes campaign roll-outs a breeze - and they are manageable entirely by the corporate client.

We have built many custom solutions for our clients using the APIs to create web portals for ordering and distribution as well as connecting to other software.
