Some of the P&P team spent time down at the P2 Energy Solutions offices on Lamar St. in Houston, TX to learn more about how BOLO and iLandman are integrating together. Last year (2018), P2 acquired iLandman; a web-based land management system designed for land professionals by land professionals.
As a dedicated services company, P&P believes in always improving and expanding our knowledge of industry software. Nearly the entire analyst and data staff at P&P is already certified for iLandman data entry and reporting. We also have BOLO specialists on staff that work with both land and accounting records in that system. Since we work with any oil & gas accounting software and every land management system, staying abreast of advancements in these products is a key differentiator of P&P from other energy consulting teams.
The P2 staff was friendly and informative. Richard, Sarah, and Aaron did a great job of walking us through the integration process. There are a lot of differences between iLandman and BOLO. While BOLO does have a land module, at its heart, it is an accounting software package. Using these two programs together gives P2 customers the “best of both worlds”. With this first phase of integration , payments, AP invoices, and owner contact records can be created in BOLO via iLandman exports. It is great to see that these two programs are talking to each other without requiring duplicate data entry!
In our experience, tract-based systems like iLandman are best from a reporting perspective, but do require more detailed setup than lease-based programs. GIS specialists like those at P&P also appreciate iLandman’s intuitive mapping functions.
Some companies like to use systems like these from P2 themselves, some want third-parties like us to do it all for them, and some in-house departments just need help with the initial setup or from time to time when a large leasing project, acquisition, or divestiture occurs.
If you have any BOLO and/or iLandman needs (including data conversions), give us a call and see how we can be of service!
