The people have spoken! Our software has taken home two notable awards recently based off of nominations and votes from readers, as well as judging panels. Our Vectorworks Nomad app won Mobile Technology of 2016 at the Cloud Hosting Awards, and the annual Construction Computing Awards honored Vectorworks Architect 2017 with their Editor’s Choice award.
Cloud Hosting Awards
Held this past month at the Cumberland Hotel in London and hosted by Cloud Hosting Magazine, the Cloud Hosting awards showcase, recognize, and reward innovative technology, customer service, and marketing in the AEC industry. Over 100 guests attended the gala event, enjoying a champagne reception, three-course dinner, and entertainment from Stephen Grant, the star of various TV and radio shows.
Specifically, the Mobile Technology award honors products that simplify working on the go and inventive mobile products or services. As part of our Vectorworks Cloud Services, we developed the Vectorworks Nomad app to empower designers to access their files on any mobile device, whenever, wherever. Available for iOS and Android, the app makes it possible to view and navigate 3D renderings, share files with clients or collaborators, and mark up PDF files to save to cloud libraries. The app is available to anyone, although an expanded feature set is exclusive to Vectorworks Service Select members.
Construction Computing Awards
Also held in London, the annual Construction Computing Awards gala took place at BMA House, with over 180 guests gathering for a champagne reception and three-course dinner. For over a decade, the awards, better known as “The Hammer” in the United Kingdom, have celebrated the tools, solutions, and technology that support effective design, construction, and civil engineering projects. This year marks the seventh consecutive year that a Vectorworks product has been recognized.
“This year…having recently introduced major new features for free- and algorithmic-based modeling, and enhanced its add-on rendering application, which is now included in the latest version of the software, [Vectorworks] has totally re-organized its resource management utility, turning [Vectorworks Architect] into a comprehensive architectural design tool,” said Construction Computing Editor David Chadwick.
