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.

News from Tracks Software

ZRA Conference Update

Thu, 08 Oct 2015
Just back from attending the ZRA conference in Seattle! So fun to catch up with our users, and meet new friends, too!
We hosted a Tracks workshop where we showed off the latest features, and also took part in a lively panel discussion on user security. But it wasn't all fun and games - we spent an evening bowling with those competitive zoo registrars, and Tony is now limping around a little saying, "I think I pulled a muscle bowling."

Good to be back at the Tracks World Headquarters in beautiful Salida Colorado, where we're cooking up some good things for the next Tracks release!



Guest Engagement at National Aquarium

Tue, 15 Sep 2015

We are delighted to announce National Aquarium has put the Guest Engagement features in Tracks to work - they have a new digital sign in their gift shop that dynamically pulls information on their rescue animals from their Tracks database!

We're so proud! We've watched this little video clip of the digital sign in action, like, 20 times, and now you can too:

National Aquarium is the first Tracks facility to turn the "theoretically possible" Guest Engagement features into super cool reality. We've learned a lot in the process and we're ready to help you use the awesome Guest Engagement features at your zoo or aquarium!

(Headed to the AZA convention in Salt Lake? Come visit Tony and Dean at booth #238, near one of the food and beverage tables. Grab a snack and come visit!)
