Innovation for today, innovation for excellence

Meeting the complex  data management needs of aquariums and zoos was the driving force behind the Tracks® Software project .  Now, with fifteen years of development in the program, that’s still the reason a growing number of institutions use this powerful application to help them be their best at what matters most  – excellence in animal care.

Tracks® Software is the obvious choice for many aquariums and zoos.  No other application can match the comprehensive features available to aquarium and zoo staff when they need them most:  right now.   

Industry professionals have guided the program’s development, resulting in an application designed for its users and their daily processes – not the other way around.  Tracks® Software helps institutions provide the best in animal care, as well as make the most of staff resources.  Institutions have been collecting inventory data for years.  Tracks®  helps put that information to work by providing tools for quick access and analysis of data – knowledge to use now, as well as for the future.

This powerful tool is now available to zoos and aquariums through the purchase of an annual license. The pricing is available here.

ZooMonitor App

Thu, 19 Mar 2015

Here at Tracks World Headquarters, coders are busy putting the finishing touches on ZooMonitor, the new mobile app we're building for Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, Illinois. ZooMonitor will be a powerful animal observations resource for promoting animal health and welfare. Those of you at 2015 UX Fort Worth saw a preview of this cutting-edge app. Lincoln Park is graciously willing to share this technology with the zoo and aquarium community, so you can look for ZooMonitor's comprehensive, integrated features to show up in Tracks Software to help our animal care professionals manage studies, body condition scoring, enclosure use, and other ways that contribute to animal well-being.  We're handing off ZooMonitor to the beta testing team at Lincoln Park tomorrow and it feels a little like Christmas Eve afternoon at the North Pole at the moment - so we'll keep this short and let the elves get back to work!


RAW Rocks

Thu, 05 Mar 2015

Reporting in live from the Regional Aquatics Conference in gorgeous Monterey, California; Tracks Software is delighted to be one of the sponsors of this great group that is so committed to education, animal welfare and conservation. We’re finding all sorts of ways that great software can benefit the work going on in this field.  We’ve dropped to say hello to our friends hard at work at the beautiful Oakland Zoo, and last night the awesome crew at the Monterey Bay Aquarium hosted a completely magical evening for the RAW folks. We got to shake hands with an octopus, meet those feisty otters that have inspired the new Batch Feeding tools in our software, and watch a feeding at the unbelievable Open Sea exhibit!


We had a great conference!

We are just back from an AWESOME experience at UX 2015 Fort Worth, our annual user conference! In addition to skating around in icy Fort Worth, conference attendees had an incredible opportunity to share their work successes and challenges. Of course, the Tracks team came away with about a million great ideas. Thanks to all who participated, and thank you as well to our incredible hosts at the Fort Worth Zoo!
