What's Your Business Challenge?

  • Challenge

    Tracking Improvement Projects

    Solution

    Combine Custom Workflows with GIS Maps “We’re an electric cooperative serving customers in nine U.S. states and we’re using Pandell software to manage our acquisition, survey, and other land-related projects. We create custom workflows and attach them to each land record and parcel. For example, if a temporary workspace is required for a repair project, we create a work order, attach tasks to the project, and track hours for billing. As each record progresses through its workflow, the GIS map updates automatically to show current parcel status in real-time so we can better monitor progress.”

  • Challenge

    Managing Your Diverse Land Assets

    Solution

    Administer All Agreements in a Single Database “With our large variety of assets comes an equally large variety of obligations and challenges. With Pandell software, we can manage our regulated and non-regulated business within the same database, as well as both deeds and leases. The system integrates with our accounting software for one-time, annual, and escalating payments.”

  • Challenge

    Analyzing Your Operations in Real-time

    Solution

    View Rolled-up Dashboard Analytics “As an Investor-owned utility with four subsidiaries, we rely heavily on Pandell’s dashboards and custom reports to drive strategic land management decisions. We drill down to the data view we want and get immediate answers to critical questions like: Am I in compliance with all obligations and special considerations? Am I paying rent or taxes on properties I don’t need anymore? And, can I validate all transactions against their current agreements and bills?”

  • Challenge

    Accelerating Fieldwork

    Solution

    Mobile Field Apps and Maps “We’re an electric power and natural gas utility company operating 15 interconnected generating stations. We use Pandell land and GIS software so that our field staff can instantly check land rights and record landowner contacts directly into the system. Our vegetation management group can create a map based on a specific line and show restrictions in red to aid the field crew in planning.”

  • Challenge

    Streamlining Landowner Communications

    Solution

    Automate Tasks & Update Data in Real-time “We cut down our manual data entry significantly by using Pandell’s land system to auto-fill Microsoft Office forms, such as easement, planned maintenance operations, and compliance letters. Plus, our field reps use the Contact Management mobile app to record landowner communications which helps keep our database continually up to date.”
