Solution: Cloud-based ingenuity
With Openpath’s cloud-based, mobile access control solution, Robin not only has full visibility into who is accessing the office and when, they also can manage the entire system remotely. With Openpath’s mobile credentials, the onboarding and offboarding process is seamless and instant—no more waiting around for badges. Robin uses automatic alerts to be notified of access events like door ajar and failed authentication to proactively assist employees or address security concerns in real-time. Plus, with the detailed reporting available 24/7 in the Openpath dashboard, Robin can adhere to the IT compliance standards required in their facility.
The cloud-based management also played a critical role in keeping Robin open during the pandemic. They utilize group suspension of credentials, and only reactivate users once they pass a health verification. To further enhance safety in the workplace, Robin cross-references Openpath’s access data with their own reservation tool to identify which workstations need to be cleaned each day, and to confirm who actually came into the office. This helps the Robin team expedite contact tracing efforts, and provides more insight into space usage to optimize the office over time. Plus, the Wave to Unlock feature makes entering the space a completely touchless experience. According to Gregory, “everyone feels safer with Openpath.”
