While much of the world engages in an eternal Apple vs. Android product debate, designers and architects face an even bigger decision when it comes to choosing technology.

Recently, Competitionline, a leading platform for architectural competitions in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, asked their audience a simple question: “What software do you use?” More than 300 architects and planners in fields ranging from building construction and scenography to interior design and landscape architecture participated in the poll.

The results speak for themselves. For 3D workflows, Vectorworks software is the second-most favored program and is tied for first place pertaining to 2D workflows.

Furthermore, another one of their illuminating studies found that Vectorworks users may have more job opportunities. Competitionline evaluated all job ads published on their online job market from 2013-2016 and discovered that experience with Vectorworks software was the second-most asked for out of all software programs on job listings.
