ZIMS Educational License
Teach the World Standard
The ISIS global network includes more than 20,000 employees of zoos, aquariums and other conservation organization from over 800 institutions in more than 80 countries; creating the largest global network of zoological interests in the world. This global community has for 40 years invested in collaboration through data sharing with ISIS and the result of this international commitment is the ZIMS application.
Now you can integrate the World Standard animal records management solution into your College, University, Technical School or Professional Training Institution's curriculum with a LearnZIMS Educational License.
ISIS also offers premium training services for the ZIMS application.
ZIMS PREMIUM SERVICES
For When One-Size Doesn't Fit All
Because the ZIMS application represents many new business rules, and contains many features previously unavailable to our members, we are offering ISIS Premium Services. We understand that you may want services in addition to those provided as part of standard membership.
ISIS has teamed with Dell® to offer the ZIMS application as a Locally-Hosted Solution. This will allow you to run the ZIMS application directly inside your own network.
This allows you to:
- Develop your own custom reports based on a local view of ZIMS data
- Integrate other applications with ZIMS data (e.g., accounting, insurance, etc.)
- Access to the ZIMS application based primarily on your network connection and not entirely on your Internet connection
Through feature sponsorship any ISIS member(s) may suggest a timeline for a specific functionality to be developed. The member(s) would pay a premium -- or sponsor that feature.
Typically, ISIS receives input and feedback from users and members; we then use this advice to determine the functionality developed and offered in upcoming releases of the ZIMS application. ISIS determines the overall priority and timing based on the needs of its overall membership.
However, if there is a feature that is of general use to a majority of users, a member(s) may choose to sponsor that feature to ensure its completion for a specific ZIMS release. This provides members a vehicle to have a feature included in the ZIMS application earlier than might otherwise be the case.
Data entry and migration project planning
ISIS will work with you to plan how to move your important information from disparate sources – Excel spreadsheets, Access databases, paper copies – into the ZIMS application. Through this service, we will help you create a project plan to get the work done.
Offsite data entry
ISIS will collect documents from your institution and input your important data into your ZIMS database by hand. (Based on volume.)
ISIS will work with you to move your important information from electronic sources – such as Excel spreadsheets or Access databases – into the ZIMS application.
