The Tools for Success
Wizdom Makes you More Valuable in an Evolving Industry
A smoother title process helps you deliver higher-quality results and makes you indispensable to your clients. What could you do with more business and more time?
TIMES ARE CHANGING
In an industry known for stagnation and antiquated practices, it is refreshing to see that we are finally moving the needle when it comes to adopting better technology and processes. Better tools help landmen spend more time using their expertise for skilled work and less time on repetitive data entry and monotonous tasks. Your highest and best use is in your brainpower, leave the rest to us.
ONWARD & UPWARD
Learning and utilizing emerging technologies puts you at the top of your game and widens your professional path. The demand for landmen who understand how software tools will impact the future of the Oil & Gas industry is growing exponentially. Wizdom Land is digital proof of your experience, skill set, and knowledge, which you can carry with you throughout your career.
Set yourself apart. Many landmen and independent contractors worry technology that makes their work more efficient and streamlines processes will reduce their billable hours and even demand. We believe that the opposite is true; when your clients can see more effective results and transparency, you build trust and long-term relationships. Better work today means more work tomorrow.
WIZDOM- A ROADMAP OF YOUR CAREER
When you’re looking for work they say, “Email a resume,” and it’s filed away with 20 others. When it comes to hiring landmen, managers have no way of verifying how much of the information on a resume is legitimate and how much is fabricated.
IF you get an interview for a new project, they ask about your experience; which basins, how many counties you’ve worked, how many acres you’ve run, etc. You can rattle off the recent stuff, but that may just scratch the surface of your work history. Without a way to really showcase your value, they lump you in with the rest and begin to haggle over day rates.
Have you ever wondered how many instruments you’ve reviewed in your career? Could you take your experience and put it on a map to show your exposure to different basins and title challenges? Are you a crew chief, and if so, how many people have you managed in your career? By using Wizdom you are building a reputation of verified work experience that will become priceless as it grows; especially during the downturns where only vetted, proven professionals will prevail.
This is YOUR account. Control YOUR future. Stop haggling over day rates and take ownership.

DOCUMENT & DATA MANAGEMENT
The ability to take pictures of the instruments while in the courthouse is handy, but also tedious when transferring, combining, or renaming images. Keeping Surface, Minerals, Mortgages and Leasehold chains correct, means a lot of back and forth to ensure you’ve covered all your tasks. Complicated tracts, old HBP, Subdivisions, etc. can mean 1000’s of instruments you need to review.
Wizdom can fix that.
Use our Excel index import template to copy data from county and title company indexes and import them into your examination projects. Export your run sheets into Excel for title breakouts and proofing before delivery.
Bulk Capture & Auto-Recognition
Upload hundreds or even thousands of documents and Wizdom will auto-associate them to your title chain indexing and digital courthouse. Wizdom will tell you what you already have the moment you do the index, so you aren’t capturing the same document more than once.

Wizdom reports come to me as a standardized, polished product that saves me a lot of time in preparing a title opinion. I can easily search every document to flag and resolve issues. Everything is in one place and uniform every time so I can quickly deliver my opinion which is something my clients really appreciate.
~ Oil & Gas Attorney
I’ve been a landman since 1968, and as land gets passed down through generations, minerals get split which makes gathering and reviewing land records much more complicated than it used to be. Compared to the old title process, Wizdom makes our title process 3-4X faster and significantly reduces our costs. I have seen a lot of title tools come and go over the years and nothing has made anywhere close to the impact we have seen with Wizdom.
~Jimmy Cain, Landman
Wizdom has really given me the ability to expand my responsibilities as a landman which makes me more valuable. This tool allows me to create title assignments, generate runsheets, and find documents so much faster because everything is organized in one place. I am ahead of the curve when it comes to landmen, and that means better job security going forward. This is where the industry is going and landmen need to get on board if they want to stay at the top of their game.
~Drew Schutts, Landman
I do a lot of abstracting on a daily basis, and since I began been using Wizdom, I’ve saved so much time by not having to repeatedly pull the same documents. Since everything is electronic, I am able to make changes or fix mistakes and regenerate reports in minutes rather than starting all over again. Wizdom has made my process so much more efficient.
