Crew Management made easy.

GigPlaner becomes CrewBrain

Dear clients,

In the past years, GigPlaner has developed from a simple scheduling tool for events to a comprehensive tool for a wide range of personnel topics in the event industry. No matter if you need a calculation of requirements, project and event planning, employee administration, accounting, time recording and much more - with GigPlaner we offer you a complete solution for your personnel planning.

Now that we have been offering and developing GigPlaner for more than 8 years, it is time for us to take the whole platform to the next level. And that's why I'm pleased to present our vision for the future of workforce planning today: CrewBrain.

With CrewBrain we will continue the success story of GigPlaner and at the same time we want to set a clear sign for the future viability and the consistent further development of our product. I would like to give you a first preview of the innovations you can expect with CrewBrain in this update info. In the coming weeks you will also have the opportunity to personally take a first look at CrewBrain.


Best regards

Sven Schlotthauer


New name

With CrewBrain we are creating a new brand that focuses exactly on the core competence of our software: the planning of events and the management of internal and external personnel with all related functions. In the future, we will place this brand even more on the international market in order to expand our current growth in new markets. CrewBrain will gradually replace the previous name and will later replace it completely.

New layout

For CrewBrain we have not only redesigned our corporate identity, but also the user interface of our software, both technically and visually. The new layout is only the first step, as it allows us to offer more variants and to develop new features faster and easier. In the next few weeks, we will gradually activate the new layout for all users as an option, whereby both layouts can be used in parallel during the transition period. The time for the complete changeover from GigPlaner to CrewBrain can be determined by each customer later on. We will contact the respective contract persons about the exact procedure.

New website

In the course of the new corporate identity for CrewBrain, we have also revised our website. The new website, which you can reach under, will replace the previous website in the coming weeks. However, all your accounts will still be accessible via the previous domain (e.g. This way, nothing will change for you and your employees at first, and you will not have to remember any new access data or links. All API accesses will also continue to work via the previous domains.

New features

The development does not stand still for CrewBrain and of course we will provide new features as usual in short intervals. Features we are currently working on for CrewBrain are a complete history and logging of changes, the possibility to divide a company into departments and use these to control the permissions for views and approvals, and an additional access variant where employees do not have access to the system but can still be requested by e-mail. As soon as these features are available, we will inform you as usual via update info.

Visit us this point we actually wanted to invite you to our booth at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, so that you can get a first impression on CrewBrain. However, due to the new Coronavirus Covid-19, the show has been postponed to May and in the meantime it has unfortunately been completely cancelled.

But also independent of the show we are available for any questions  and are looking forward to your feedback on CrewBrain, the new layout and the new features we will release in the next versions. And of course we are already looking forward to Prolight + Sound 2021, which will hopefully take place again as planned from 13th - 16th March 2021 in Frankfurt.
