Expanding upon its availability to users within the United States and Canada since April 2012, Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. has announced the launch of Vectorworks® Cloud Services in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Portugal and Spain. Vectorworks Cloud Services will provide greater convenience, collaboration and freedom for users to access their designs from any location, at any time. It is available exclusively for members of the company's software subscription program, Vectorworks Service Select, and is initially offered as a free service.

"We are very pleased to offer the benefits of cloud computing directly to our UK customers through Vectorworks Cloud Services," commented Martyn Horne, product development manager at Computers Unlimited, the Vectorworks distributor for the United Kingdom and Ireland. "Coupled with the new mobile app, Vectorworks Nomad, this capability adds a very useful and new dimension to the Vectorworks workflow and product portfolio."

This initial Cloud Services 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 also saves time by freeing up desktop computing power. 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.

"Vectorworks Cloud Services will be a nice opportunity for Danish Vectorworks users," added John Hansen of MikroGraf, who represents Vectorworks in Denmark. "Smaller firms, in particular, will benefit from the backup and presentation features of this inventive service."

Vectorworks Cloud Services will also save users time by providing a cloud-based workflow for creating presentations, shifting calculations needed to generate sections, elevations, renderings, and BIM data from the desktop to the cloud. Vectorworks Cloud Services is offered exclusively to Vectorworks Service Select members.
