Species360 is delighted to announce exciting improvements are coming to the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) in 2023!
As part of our ongoing mission to improve ZIMS value to you, we are pleased to share some of the newest features and benefits we have been working on here at Species360. The ZIMS you know and love will receive a new look as we modernize and update the platform, enhancing the capabilities and functionality of ZIMS. Species360 members can expect a refreshed, modern platform that will be mobile-responsive, enabling users to access ZIMS directly from wherever they work.
“Our goal is to ensure ZIMS meets the needs of our members for years to come and saves people time in their daily record-keeping and conservation program support,”– Jim Guenter, Species360 CEO.
“As ZIMS enters its 11th year, we are very excited to share our modernization plans for the platform. While we continue to release new features and functionality in ZIMS, we are also bringing a user-centric redesign of ZIMS for Husbandry, Medical, and Studbooks modules that places ZIMS users ever more at the center of our platform,” says Jim Guenter, Species360 CEO.
“We have invested in user experience resources to ensure the most effective technology and design for our users,” says Dr. Sandy Trautwein, Species360 Director of Aquatic Conservation and Product Management. “As part of the modernization process, our product teams are developing features and updates that will be released in a new ZIMS environment. Many of these features and updates have been requested by our members, and modernization gives us an opportunity to address them in a new way.”
The modernization process will happen gradually, and Species360 members can expect to start seeing the first changes in early 2023. Members will be able to continue using all features in ZIMS while the modernization work happens behind the scenes.
Here are some of the exciting aspects to look forward to on the updated ZIMS platform, in 2023 and beyond:
- Features built in the modern platform will be mobile-responsive and work seamlessly on any device.
- New features and updates released in the modern environment that meet users’ needs and save time.
- A refreshed and modern-looking interface with an improved user experience.
- Updates to the technology will improve performance globally.
The Species360 team is incredibly excited about the upcoming changes, and we know our members will be as well. We look forward to sharing more news with you next year as we begin to roll out the modernization program.
We continue to be committed to providing a platform that meets the needs of our members. As always, we welcome your feedback and encourage you to get in touch with us to share your thoughts on the modernization process.
