Gray Hawk Land Solutions, a leading provider of land acquisition and data extraction services to the US energy sector, recommends Pandell’s land project management software to its clients for the best project management benefits possible.

When energy companies acquire new land assets, the sheer volume of data requiring conversion from paper to digital files – or from one digital system to another – can be overwhelming. Most companies are simply not staffed to handle the tidal wave of ROW and admin work that’s landed in their laps. So, they’ll contract Gray Hawk Land Solutions to extract, review, complete and digitize the data with the fastest and most accurate results. But finding the best human resources to complete acquisition projects is only half the solution; the other half is finding the best software platform on which to manage the project, host the data, query the data and deliver the results. This is where Pandell comes in.

“We recommend Pandell’s land software to all our clients,” says Cash Diel, President of Gray Hawk Land Solutions. “The project management software tools they’ve created for the energy industry are far superior to anything else we’ve used in the market,” he explained.

Prior to naming Pandell as its preferred technology partner in 2021, Gray Hawk worked with another land solution provider but found key gaps in its digital services made their jobs very challenging. “We were frustrated with slow development and restricted functionality of the previous product we were using,” said Gray Hawk’s VP of Business Development & Operations, Eli Lyons. “We learned Pandell had an impressive track record in land management technology, so we decided to take a deep dive into its solutions and discovered all kinds of value-add benefits we didn’t even know existed,” reported Lyons.

From the outset Pandell provided Gray Hawk with a secure web portal to manage land acquisition projects and communicate with stakeholders. Multi-level security, transparency into real-time project status, and the ability to see project details plotted on GIS maps, brought immediate tangible value to the team. Furthermore, project data could be securely segmented off without exposing their client’s entire corporate database to external service personnel, thus reducing client risk, and giving decision-makers greater confidence to outsource their projects.

“Pandell gave us a way to streamline our project communication and package results more effectively for our clients,” Lyons shared. “We’ve now converted hundreds of thousands of files and delivered complex projects that were readily consumed by our clients’ own land systems. Positioning Pandell’s project management software together with our land acquisition services has been a game changer for our business.”

Pandell Projects is a web-based land acquisition project management software used for managing surface acquisitions, third party agreements, and real-time communication between energy companies & land services providers. As a central project hub, it provides stakeholders a live, working environment and single source of truth to record, manage, map, and view project information.
