Client Spotlight: Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society

Palm Beach Zoo

Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society was formed in 1969. In the beginning, the zoo only had a few ducks, chickens, and a goat. The zoo now houses over 700 animals from Florida, North, South and Central America, Australia, and Madagascar. More than 314,000 people visit each year, and over 5,900 households maintain annual memberships.

As the zoo grew, so did their need for a reliable CMMS. Since joining the MAPCON family in 2014, the zoo has become dependent upon their CMMS for a multitude of things. They use MAPCON Mobile, which is an app that allows them to take their CMMS with them wherever they go. Zookeepers find the portability especially useful. When the zookeepers are out caring for the animals, they can create work requests on the fly when needed. When they are feeding the animals, they can submit work requests right away if they notice any part of the exhibit that needs repairing. This can help prevent animals from escaping, and improve overall safety!
