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.

Nice Teamwork

Tue, 24 Nov 2015

Somebody bring in great beer (yay for New Glarus Spotted Cow!) and somebody spring for cheap pizza...and of course, somebody bring in Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots and you end up with one fine happy hour. An example of the collaborative excellence going on here at the Tracks Software World Headquarters.

Wishing all a happy Thanksgiving!

If your I.T. department handles Tracks updates, they should have what they need to get your zoo or aquarium updated with the latest version of Tracks. Once you have the newest version, check out the brand new Dive Log module, the brand new All Entity Media module, improvements to lab comparisons, and much, much more. Read all about it in the Release Notes.
