Supplier News

The new offering to be available exclusively to Vectorworks Service Select members.

| April 4, 2012

COLUMBIA, Md. – Nemetschek Vectorworks has launched Vectorworks Cloud Services, which will provide greater convenience, collaboration and freedom for users to access their designs from any location, at any time. Vectorworks Cloud Services will be available exclusively for members of the company’s software subscription program, Vectorworks Service Select.

This initial offering will allow users of Vectorworks software to access and share files and make design decisions from any location. Changes to users’ Vectorworks files will be automatically synchronized to their private cloud storage, allowing them to browse, annotate and share their designs from web-enabled devices using the Vectorworks Nomad mobile application.

Vectorworks Cloud Services saves time by freeing up desktop computing power, the company said. Creating client presentations with desktop-design software often requires a significant amount of user investment to coordinate, monitor, and wait while resources consume the desktop CPU. Vectorworks Cloud Services provides a cloud-based workflow, shifting calculations needed to generate sections, elevations, renderings, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) data from the desktop to the cloud.

"The cloud offers important benefits in efficiency and collaboration to the design workflow, enhancing the value that Vectorworks products already offer on the desktop,” said Sean Flaherty, CEO of Nemetschek Vectorworks. “Vectorworks Cloud Services will provide the freedom and flexibility designers need to successfully meet the challenges of working in today’s mobile world. In particular, the ability to perform calculations in the cloud will be a significant advantage to our users.”

Vectorworks Cloud Services is initially available as a free trial until April 30, 2012 to Vectorworks Service Select members in the U.S. and Canada, and will be available to customers in other countries where Vectorworks Service Select is offered later this year.
