"It’s allowed us to have that emotional feel of an open space that’s for all of us."

How Openpath meets the access demands of a 24/7 workplace


The sleek, modern look of the Openpath reader fits in effortlessly with the office space to give a positive first impression to visitors.

Mobile credentials

A mobile-enabled access control system lets Hawke spend their time welcoming employees, instead of the technicalities of opening doors and distributing visitors passes.

Ease of use

As Workplace Operations Coordinator Lauren Makielski puts it: Openpath allows Hawke to maintain a high level of security, "without me having to perform a bunch of extra steps."


Hawke Media uses Openpath's integration with Envoy for visitor management and likes that they can use Slack to control doors and access from Slack chat through different commands.

Cool and innovative

Minimal administrative overheard for a multi-site company

With Openpath, Hawke Media can easily administer access to new employees across their Los Angeles and New York offices.

Challenge: Flexible access

Hawke Media finds gaps in their clients’ marketing strategies and comes up with full-service solutions to deliver better results. Given Hawke's mission is to improve their clients’ branding, they need to set an example with their own office: they want a security system that is welcoming and innovative. They require flexibility from their access control solution to meet their employees’ irregular work schedule and easily manage their frequent office visitors. While their headquarters are in Los Angeles, they’ve opened a New York office, and hope to expand to more areas soon, so finding a scalable system was essential.

Solution: Remote management

When Erik Huberman, Founder and CEO of Hawke Media, first experienced Openpath’s Triple Unlock technology, he was shocked to find something that was so "cool and innovative." With Openpath, he gets both security and flexibility. Employees can come early and work late, coming and going as they please due to our easy-to-manage cloud software. In addition, LA employees can be granted access to the NY office with the touch of a button. Our integration with Envoy ensures that visitors have a frictionless entry experience. Visitors can be sent cloud keys before their arrival to unlock doors within their web browser (without needing to have the Openpath app on their device).
