With our global network of 35 distributors, we’re firm believers that teamwork makes the dream work. As a result, we’re always eager to celebrate our extended family’s successes, so we’d like to congratulate our Japanese distributor, A&A Co., Ltd, for receiving a BCN AWARD 2017 in the CAD software category thanks to its large Japanese market share.

“This is an incredible honor for A&A, and it’s quite the accomplishment for them to win this award in the highly competitive Japanese market. We sincerely thank all A&A employees for their hard work and dedication, resulting in this tremendous success,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “We will continue developing the robust Vectorworks product line to further empower our distributors to lead the market and enable today’s designers to create unmatched experiences.”

Run by BCN Co., Ltd. for the past 18 years, the BCN AWARD collects the sales data of major domestic electric appliance mass merchandisers, personal computer specialty shops and net shops in Japan. Based off these numbers, the awards recognize manufacturers with the highest total annual sales volume. This year, 58 product provider companies took home prizes in 121 different categories, ranging from categories like Business software, Communications software, and Education/learning software.

With a 32 percent market share, A&A beat out software providers Phototron Limited (24.3 percent market share) and Lilac System Inc. (21.8 percent market share), establishing Vectorworks software as the market leader in Japan. This marks the seventh year that A&A was recognized with a BCN AWARD, winning third place in 2012 and second place from 2013 to 2016.

“It is a great honor to receive a BCN AWARD. It reaffirms that architects and designers highly appreciate the creative design features in the Vectorworks series, which led to us receiving this award,” said Eiichi Kawase, president of A&A Co., Ltd., during the awards ceremony. “We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the customers and dealers who have given us support and patronage. We will continue to make efforts to provide more attractive products and services in the future.”
