iLandMan gives UL students a taste of the industry
Students of UL Lafayette’s Professional Land and Resource Management program last month got a taste of the software offerings of iLandMan, a lease acquisition and land management software company based in Lafayette.
In February, iLandMan co-founder and Vice President Richard Hines, a 30-year veteran of the industry, led two classes for the students of UL’s PLRM program, according to a press release issued by the company.
According to the release, Hines was approached by course administrator Buster LeBlanc to share his experiences in land work, how the industry began and has evolved, where it is today, and changes he sees for the future of the industry. Students were also given the opportunity to view and train on iLandMan’s tract-based online land management system by entering data and reviewing mapping images and rules.
