A Look at How Cloud-Based Systems Help Land Management Teams Thrive 

Did you know that between 2005 and 2017, there was a 159% increase in remote work? (Global Workplace Analytics & FlexJobs) Today, nearly every industry employs people who work offsite, away from HQ, or at home, and it’s crucial these individuals and teams possess the technology that enables their work and contributions. Furthermore, in these uncharted waters we find ourselves navigating together, reliable technology and systems that allow us to work anywhere, at any time, have become critical.

The Evolved Need for 24/7 Access

In upstream oil and gas, land departments struggle when they don’t have the ability to interact with their land system on a daily basis. Moreover, lacking immediate access from the palm of one’s hand is frustrating and even feels antiquated given today’s fast-paced environment. Many years ago, we envisioned a “mobile land society” so that people could run titles; create leases; and manage lease and contract obligations, divisions of interest, interest decks, and GIS mapping from anywhere they had an internet connection. Today, that concept is a reality with P2 iLandMan. By being cloud based, anyone with the right permissions can enter, approve, or upload data directly into projects. This gives every stakeholder better data for better decision making.

Remote Work

Why do we need to work remote? In many instances, companies have employees spread across the globe and a headquarters location is simply the main mailing address. Other times, we find ourselves in unprecedented situations where livelihoods are at stake and we must set up home offices. In either scenario, technology and systems that perform the same across any location, any server, or any IP address are needed. For land professionals, entering data, running reports, or creating and viewing maps are essential tasks that, ideally, can be completed from anywhere in the world. When you employ a flexible, adaptable, cloud-based land system, remote work is really just work.

Tract & Formation-Based Land Systems

Whether you’re in the field, in the office, or at home, as a land management professional, you need to see what is coming up whether that’s an account of expiring acreage or a map-based view of the wells that are closing in on your acreage. The only way to calculate truly accurate net acreage values is with a tract and formation-based lease management system. Tract and formation-based systems have “unique identifiers,” while contract-based systems aggregate ownership, creating inequities and inaccuracies in the value of acreage.

Security in the Cloud: An Oxymoron?

Not at all. P2 iLandMan’s data is protected by industry-leading authentication security that allows for scalability and provides enterprise, single sign-on capability. We also have redundancy meaning your data is more secure with our cloud environment as compared to most other data centers.

In Times of Uncertainty, Count on Each Other

In times of uncertainty, may we all count on our neighbors and friends, family and loved ones, and the community at large for strength and guidance. May we also count on the needed technology and applications that keep companies and people at work. Today, let us be grateful for our networks, both software and social.
