Computers Unlimited, on behalf of Nemetschek Vectorworks Inc, has partnered with gardening website Shoot to provide integration between Vectorworks Landmark and Shoot's online garden design resources.
The new partnership allows Landmark users to generate personal garden design plans using Shoot's database which includes information, maintenance and care advice for +13,000 plants.
"This is such an exciting initiative where customers will be able to quickly add any plant from the extensive Shoot plant list into their Vectorworks plans, generate plant schedule reports for their customers and send specific project lists back to the Shoot website to create online maintenance plans” said Martyn Horne from Computers Unlimited, the exclusive distributor of Vectorworks in the UK.
The Shoot plant list is available to Vectorworks Service Select members using Vectorworks Landmark. The plant list will contain the botanical name, common name, a summary of the alant characteristics and the Shoot database unique plant ID.
Having added the Shoot plant list to the master Vectorworks Plant Database, users will be able to add the specific Shoot plant to plant objects within their Vectorworks drawings in the usual manner. Users will also be able to export their plant list schedules from Vectorworks back into the Shoot website to create online maintenance schedules.
