Wade Brawley founded the company in 2009 with business process and management consulting as the foundation. While identifying process improvement and data quality opportunities, he discovered his clients needed both software solutions and staff augmentation to overcome existing challenges. Today, Land Information Services is the premier Land back-office provider, offering outsourcing services alongside our LandVantage software platform to help companies turn their data into meaningful information. LandVantage is not only used by our ever growing client base, but it is also the platform used daily by our 50+ Analysts. This helps us identify ways to deliver an ever improving product and widen the gap between LandVantage and other software platforms.

we think differently.
Our practice provides multiple custom options to help your company continue on a path of growth and success. We tailor services to provide premier back office Land functions including Lease Records, Division Orders, and Document tracking. We provide management consulting and software solutions to help Land departments operate on a more efficient level.
WE ENCOURAGe CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION.
We organize our staff into teams that collaborate and support one another. We strive to create an open, honest, creative, flexible, and fun work environment that enhances the lives of each of our valued employees. We believe creativity and innovation form the impetus for excellence.
WE BELIEVE RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE KEY TO SUCCESS.
We listen to you. We pride ourselves in taking the time to listen to our clients and adapting our solutions to the client’s work environment. Client challenges may be similar, but no two are ever the same. There are no cookie cutter solutions. LIS recommends routine status meetings with those we represent – daily, weekly, or bi-weekly. This not only ensures we are accountable, but it keeps our clients engaged and in full ownership of their data.
