Member Testimonials

For in-depth stories, see our ZIMS at Work series of interviews with Species360 members!

“Species360 staff are exceptionally professional, knowledgeable and efficient. And ZIMS is the easiest and safest way to keep the history of a zoo in just one place.”
Syliva M. Flores, Zoo Registrar, El Paso Zoo

“ZIMS is an invaluable tool, not only allowing us to accurately monitor our facility inventory, but also record and keep track of important medical and husbandry information. These data, rather than being tucked away in paper filing cabinets, have become easily accessible tools for our husbandry and veterinary staff. The Species360 support team is fantastic. If I ever have an issue or question about how to properly use the ZIMS software to best manage our data, their response is always fast, friendly, and helpful. I never feel like I’m on my own with the software.”
Matt Seguin, M.S., Curator of Husbandry and Records, Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium

“ZIMS . . . is easy, speedy and user friendly! Well done!”
Maria Rodeano, Direttore, Parco Zoo Punta Verde

“The [ZIMS] features and options I always dreamed we could use are either incorporated or being planned as enhancements. In today’s zoological institutions, with multiple species being managed as groups, it would be impossible to document the data the way we can in ZIMS.”
Rachél Watkins Rogers, Zoo Registrar and Records Coordinator, Zoo Miami

“It’s so intuitive!”
Signe Andersen, Odense Zoo

“I must thank you for your assistance, guidance and professionalism. We have only started to realize the potential of ZIMS as a management tool, even in our small institution, it’s remarkable!”
Meyer de Kock, Manager, Al Bustan Zoological Centre

“This class not only synthesizes the zoo science curriculum, but it also includes a job task. [Students’] hands-on skill at entering data into ZIMS is really important for their resumes.”
Maggie Liguori, Instructor, teaching with LearnZIMS, Delaware Valley University

“I just wanted to pass on a complement on the Species Holding program in ZIMS – AMAZING! I absolutely love the feature and it’s incredibly easy to use. The ease of information cuts my time in half!”
Brigid Randall, The Living Desert

“ZIMS is really great!!! It’s a pleasure to work with it!!”
Carsten Zehrer, Kurator / Curator Registrar, Münchener Tierpark Hellabrunn AG

“I love the batch weight entries. I love that you can see the text of all the notes. I love the weight graphs. I think I am going to like the Alerts for my fecal check due dates. I’m sure as I get further along, there will be more things I like.”
Jan Johnson, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

“Species360 staff was available and prompt with ‘stupid, new user’ questions. I’m still adjusting to the look of the new reports, but I’ve never looked back to ARKS.
Tracy Frampton, Conservation Coordinator-Terrestrial, Animal Registrar, Brevard Zoo
