Columbia, MD, September 18, 2018 – The demands of the entertainment industry are constantly evolving, and access to state-of-the-art technology is more critical than ever. In response to this, global design and BIM software solutions provider Vectorworks, Inc. is pleased to announce that DWR Distribution has been appointed an official distributor for Vectorworks Spotlight, Braceworks and Vision software in South Africa.
“DWR has demonstrated a strong commitment to Vectorworks and has deep roots in the entertainment industry, and it was a natural progression to have them officially join the Vectorworks family as a distributor,” said Tara Grant, director of channel operations at Vectorworks. “As the demand for our solutions grows and Vectorworks continues to expand, we are looking for strong distribution partners like DWR to provide local support in markets around the world.”
Since 2013, DWR has sold software to the entertainment industry and offered extensive training at its office over the years. This new agreement will further benefit customers by allowing greater technical and sales support with direct access to the team at Vectorworks.
“It’s an honor to be able to distribute a brand like Vectorworks, and we are very excited about the partnership,” said Duncan Riley, owner of DWR Distribution. “We believe that the close collaboration between MA Lighting and Vectorworks, to assist lighting designers on workflow, will be a game changer. On DWR’s side, we have a passionate team supporting the brand. We see Vectorworks as a 360-degree entertainment design solution for the country, providing professionals and students with a tool that will make their lives easier.”
DWR’s Dylan Jones will manage all Vectorworks sales and support. “It’s exciting to be working directly with the Vectorworks team,” he said. “We are looking forward to providing educational and network licenses to the industry. The training Vectorworks provides their distributors has already helped us improve the quality of our technical support, and with direct access to their order process, we are now able to deliver licenses more quickly to our customers.”
DWR will continue to offer training sessions presented by Francois van der Merwe, who has been using Vectorworks for 14 years.
