Vectorworks, Inc., has announced a new Vectorworks Partner Network, with the aim of connecting technology, content partners, and hardware companies to Vectorworks’ 685,000 plus Vectorworks userbase. With such a large global network of users, the Vectorworks Partner Network (VPN) can provide value for both producers of good technologies and content, as well as the end-user consumers of those technologies and content.
The new ecosystem amplification efforts span all market focuses for Vectorworks, including Architecture, Urban Design and Planning, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Landscape Design and Installation, and Entertainment Design.
“Our network of global partners are innovators and collaborators who create solutions that empower designers to transform the world with great design,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “Together with our partner community, we’ll pioneer and deliver innovative solutions, address customer pain points and maximize user workflow efficiencies.”
Three Partnership Categories
There are three partnership categories and three levels of membership in the Vectorworks Partner Network. The three categories are:
- Technology — industry-leading companies adding advanced built-in capabilities, as well as third-party plug-in or add-on options, to optimize efficiency and add solutions and workflows in Vectorworks
- Content Partners — manufacturer-specific libraries of CAD/BIM symbols, material textures, images, and/or associated data that represent manufacturers’ products
- Hardware — quality-tested and validated manufacturers meetings performance requirements and standards with the Vectorworks software
Partnership tiers include Silver, Gold, and Platinum. All three come with at least 1 NFR license of Vectorworks and offer a range of marketing exposure opportunities to the vast Vectorworks global user base via Vectorworks Partner Network (VPN) website and other locations such as inside the Vectorworks University platform, in addition to events like the Vectorworks Design Summit.
Vectorworks has recently over the past few years added substantial new technology partnerships, and not just with fellow Nemetschek Group companies. While Bluebeam, dRofus, Maxon, Solibri and Scia have variously strong connections to Vectorworks, the biggest new names in visualization have become key new add-on or integrated plug-in partners such as Lumion, Enscape, and now Unreal Engine and Twinmotion (both Epic products).
