Theatron

The Secret Behind A Successful Production

Theatron manages productions, stages and rehearsal rooms, actors and technical personnel, scheduling of shows and rehearsals as well as working hours and much much more.

The built-in conflict control feature makes sure that the user does not need to double check for duplicates in planned work shifts. It will automatically tell whether an actor or technical person is available for a spesific rehearsal or whether a certain stage or rehearsal room is available.

Theatron is designed to make the production planning as efficient and easy as possible.

Theatron takes also into account the additional planning needs of touring theatres. With Theatron it is possible to manage also events outside the theatres own facilities and make a more detailed touring plan for these events.

Theatron integrates seamlessly into our Intranet platform, which enables the theatre personnel to see their own, planned work hours anywhere; what is going on in the theatre and where and when. The working hours lists, planned rehearsals, and holidays are all in the Intranet and can be viewed or printed out by the personnel themselves. Users can check their work schedule and check and approve working hours from anywhere with their smartphones and/or tablets.

The Intranet delivers a comprehensive set of tools for the theatre to streamline their daily operations as well as provide a centralized way of sharing information within the whole organisation.

Reports provide vital information both to the employees and the management.

Theatron has a comprehensive set of default reports available and we can also produce tailor made reports by request. If the information is in Theatron it can be exported into a report with the required dependencies and layout. All exported reports can be viewed and printed from the Intranet.

Both Theatron and our Intranet integrate seamlessly into payroll, human resources, access control, Info-TV and other systems that are vital for the theatres' daily operations.

Typically Theatron is integrated into the existing payroll system, which makes it possible to plan the working hours in Theatron, check and approve the hours in the Intranet and then send the information automatically into the payroll system. No need for manual work or printing papers. Theatron can also be integrated for example into Microsoft Exchange, Google Calendars and Microsoft Active Directory.

Both Theatron and Intranet are browser based i.e. used with a standard Internet browser. Nothing needs to be installed in the customer environment. Both PC and Mac environments are supported as well as various tablets.

We take care of the backups and any necessary updates for the server environments, so our customers can concentrate on making theatre.

Customer service is included as standard in our contracts. Our customers can choose their preferred service level in our Service Level Agreements. We also provide training services for our customers.

Development continues every day with new ideas and needs from our customers.
