Scheduling and registration convenience
Uurwerk is the scheduling program designed by TOT for events personnel in the cultural sector – both venues and companies. It was developed from many years of practical experience at, and in conjunction with, large and small theatre and event organisers in the Netherlands. Its strength lies in the ease with which you can schedule the personnel in an efficient, well-ordered way, and in accordance with legislation. Time tracking and accountability form an integral part of this, and have never been so easy. » read on about Uurwerk personnel scheduler
Uurwerk on the web
After the first succesfull years with Uurwerk Basic the clientele of Uurwerk had grown, as had the clients themselves. The virtual ceiling came into view. The plan for Uurwerk Online was born.
Time to grow
In 2007 Marijcke initiated discussions with Rik Bruins of Art of Automation, software developer, sound technician and former Artifax-consultant. Just as Marijcke, Rik has a thorough knowledge of the cultural sector and embraces challenges head on. Together they decided to develop an advanced version of Uurwerk, whilst retaining the strong points of Uurwerk Basic: » read on about Uurwerk Online – Uurwerk as a web based application

Scheduling from events
From 2000 and for many years thereafter, Marijcke Voorsluijs, the owner of TOT, was responsible for scheduling the technical employees for the Stadsschouwburg Utrecht using Rostarflex, a large scheduling application. This was an expensive program that ultimately delivered, but was not made for events-guided scheduling. A number of fixed shifts were the basis, but that is not how the cultural sector works. The event, performance or concert sets the tone. An opera places different demands on the staff than a classical concert, for example. Further, the program of the day must be visible in the schedule. » read on about The background – Uurwerk Basic

A degree and a half, years of work experience and savvy of the worldwide web all combine to create a great package. However, my greatest source of inspiration has been TOT’s clients. They ask the questions and pose challenges, as a result of which my expertise is growing. This is why I have outlined a few of them on a separate page on this website. It is not that the other clients are not important, inspirational or interesting, but not every client likes that degree of attention. Or perhaps the page is not quite finished yet.
On the client page you can read about what type of organisation they are, what TOT does for them and what the client means to TOT. You can see the client’s website, see their activities on various social media, and read their Twitter timeline live.
The links at the top and bottom of the pages help you browse easily through the client pages. The order? The length of the business relationship with the client.
Browse through TOT’s clients.
Buy new software and all your problems are a thing of the past; all your wishes are fulfilled. Every program demonstration promises this. But is it really true? Perfect applications do not exist, but optimal combinations of people, requirements and techniques do. How do you know whether a particular program is the most suitable one for your business? Do you really need that particular program, or do you already have something that can do the job and are simply unaware of it? And how will the change impact the organisation? TOT is an independent party that utilises a range of different programs and suppliers. TOT is looking forward to helping you. » read on about Applications
The world of culture revolves around performances and events. Just as much for theatres and concert auditoriums, as for event venues and museums. Under no circumstances should an auditorium be double-booked, or the technicians have a start time scheduled that is different from what the visitor hears at the box office.
This is why when a cultural organisation initiates automation event scheduling is often addressed first. Other internal business processes can also benefit, but often later. » read on about Event scheduling
