Turku City Theatre
Jere Pensikkala, Administration Manager from Turku City Theatre gives insights on their experiences and the daily usage of Theatron & Intranet.
Finnish National Theatre
Theatron was initially developed by Mansoft for the Finnish National Theatre in 2005, but also to answer the needs of any theater. As Tapani Kukkola from the Finnish National Theatre explains:
“When we started using Theatron, we decided to concentrate all our data in one place: stages, schedules, staff and productions. After the initial data input, it was easy to create different reports for different departments, as well as for our organization’s intranet. It has also made it easy to send out schedules for the needs of visiting artists and other colleagues outside our own staff”.
Päivi Isosaari is the administrative director of Finnish National Theatre and a member of the executive group. She comments: “Theatron helps us to maintain our position as the most important meeting place within the Finnish theatre scene. We want to make productions that matter, art that reflects our society. We can focus on our goals with confidence, knowing that Theatron is there to support us behind the scenes. We can definitely recommend it to other theatres”.

Ugala Theatre Estonia
“We have to use various temporary places and locations while our own building is being renovated. This creates additional challenges for production planning, but especially it will effect on how we are able to contact everyone in our theatre company regarding where they should be and when. With Theatron we are able to not only plan our schedules more effectively, but with the Intranet solution all our employees have the access to show and rehearsal timetables, work schedules etc that are always up to date. The great thing is that this can be done even with a mobile phone from anywhere,” comments Kristiina Alliksaar Executive Director for Ugala Theatre.
“Norrbottensteatern is excited to start working with Theatron, a program which through its ease of use and clarity will make our planning easier. We also believe that sharing information and schedules across our staff will be immensely facilitated by the tools provided by Theatron and the Intranet”, comments Hans Eriksson - Producer from Norrbottensteatern.
Haugesund Theatre Norway
"The theatre has its facilities in Haugesund Norway, but employees are working from various cities across Norway on a project basis. This creates a challenge for the coordination of people, facilities and time plus sharing this information across the whole organisation. We chose Theatron because we trust that Theatron & Intranet will answer our needs to tackle this challenge. To have one place with always up-to-date information accessible from anywhere with your mobile phone is important for us. With few employees and a lot of productions we trust that Theatron will make this planning and coordination work easier for us", says Artistic and General Manager Erik Schøyen from Haugesund
