Vectorworks’ Japanese Distributor A&A Wins ‘BCN AWARD 2018’

COLUMBIA, MD, Feb 16, 2018 – Vectorworks, Inc., a global design and BIM software developer, congratulates its Japanese distributor, A&A Co., Ltd., for receiving a 2018 BCN AWARD in the CAD software category. A&A received the award due to its 37.6 percent Japanese market share. Vectorworks outranked software providers Lilac System Inc. (27.3 percent market share) and Photron Limited (20.9 percent market share). Market share is based on statistics accumulated from 2,608 stores of 23 companies providing sales reports to BCN Co., Ltd.

For 19 years, BCN Co., Ltd. has collected the sales data of major domestic electric appliance mass merchandisers, personal computer specialty shops and net shops in Japan. Based on these numbers, the BCN AWARDs recognize manufacturers with the highest total annual sales volume.

“It is a great honor to receive the best prize for the CAD software category for two consecutive years with Vectorworks software,” said Takashi Yokota, president of A&A Co., Ltd. “This is a result of our customers’ support and partners’ collaboration, and we deeply appreciate them. We will continue to do our best to deliver attractive products and services to the market.”

This year, 56 product provider companies received prizes in 117 different categories, with a range of software categories including business software, communications software and education/learning software. This win marks the eighth year that A&A was recognized with a BCN AWARD, winning first place in 2017, second place from 2013 to 2016 and third place in 2012.

“A&A’s achievement with this award victory is extremely impressive, because despite the highly competitive Japanese market, they were able to not only win, but they also managed to increase their market share growth by 5.6 percent,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “We are extremely grateful for A&A employees’ hard work and dedication, which made achieving this accomplishment possible.”
