Ursa Operating Company’s VP of Land and Business Development, Kelly Muldoon J.D., CPL, spent many years with a super major where high tech solutions are abundant, but the efficiency to implement these tools could be challenging. When Kelly started with Ursa he wanted to operate with the sophisticated tools of a large organization and the efficiency and agility of a small company. With this end in mind, he helped to champion technology that did just that.
Ursa identified the need to create a “Post-Acquisition Plus Strategy” for their land documents and Kelly was instrumental in finding ThoughtTrace to help meet this goal. The search that ended with ThoughtTrace arose from two areas of concern:
- Ursa gained all of their properties through acquisition and they needed to know as much detail as possible about what they owned – and what they didn’t own!
- Ursa had also recently moved offices, and document organization was challenging with a mix of documents on servers and in physical file cabinets. They needed to establish a system of files and documents to allow for easy management, categorization, and simple searching.
“We uploaded one of the worst documents ever and it was like a miracle happened.”
Taye Van Merlin, Land Administration Advisor
