Requests and input from aquarists inspired the effective animal group management and water quality tools available in Tracks® Software.

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.
Tracks Software supports animal data sharing! View the animal holdings that Tracks zoos and aquariums are sharing. Search shared enrichment ideas and share your own great ideas with the community. More sharing features are in development.
Tracks Software just released ZooMonitor! ZooMonitor is an app that lets you record animal behavioral data and gives you tools to quickly visualize your data and export it for in-depth analysis. We partnered with Lincoln Park Zoo and the Institute of Museum & Library Services for the project.

An unexpected fruit of our labors: Our most recent employee happy hour included a Dogfish Head Beer featuring water quality aspects from National Aquarium! This gives us a whole new reason to love our water quality features.
