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.

Wild Observation Animals

Tue, 25 Nov 2014

An updated video New Animal Wizard – Rescued and Obtained from Wild is a must-watch for those zoos and aquariums collecting data for animals observed in the wild. Tracks addresses the challenge of collecting and tracking data for animals that will remain in the wild by offering a “Wild Observation” acquisition event in the New Animal Wizard. This allows you to accession animals in the wild and collect data, without impacting inventory data from the animals in your collection.

In addition, there are three more updated videos of interest to users who are responsible for adding new animals to the database: New Animal Wizard Introduction, New Animal Wizard Batch Features, and New Egg Wizard.
