Uurwerk personnel scheduler

logo Uurwerk

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

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
