"Openpath is one of the few solutions that I've ever rolled out where people have actually told me how much they love it."

Challenge: Security without sacrificing convenience

Based in Santa Monica, California, Leaf Group has a young workforce of Millennials and Gen-X employees who work with clients to use technology to connect with their respective audiences. Sean Moriarty, CEO of Leaf Group, wants their office space to reflect their culture: the strategic intersection of technology and design. They also want a security system that allows employees to come and go when they please, as working hours for Leaf Group are 24/7.

Solution: Sleek, scalable access control

First and foremost, Openpath provided Leaf Group with a solution that fits their brand aesthetic. The Openpath solution marries art and design with technology in a way that Leaf Group strives to execute in their work for their clients. From a security standpoint, the Openpath cloud-based solution allows admins to configure access remotely so that anyone can have access to the office whenever they need it. With Openpath, employees at Leaf Group feel a positive difference in the way they interact with their office space. Scott Haynes, facilities director at Leaf Group, says that Openpath is “one of the few solutions that I’ve ever rolled out where people have actually told me how much they love it.” Lastly, Openpath technology helps Leaf Group meet the compliance standards they need to meet as a publicly-traded company.
