Lobbytrack Expands Its Cloud Footprint by Integrating with Openpath Access Control
Openpath integration enables Lobbytrack users to migrate their access control system to the cloud.

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Mar 15, 2021 – Lobbytrack, a widely used desktop- and cloud-based visitor-management software application, today announces an integration with Openpath, a mobile and cloud-based access control system provider. The integration provides automatic touchless guest access to controlled workspaces and helps workplace owners and managers ensure safety and wellness during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

"After COVID-19 pushed approximately two-third of the US workforce to work from home, integrating with cloud-based ACS became a top priority," said Sandeep Jolly, CEO and Founder of Lobbytrack developer Jolly Technologies. "Our users have started moving from Lobbytrack Desktop to Lobbytrack Online and many are interested in cloud-based access control solutions (ACS) they can manage from outside the facility."

With over 30,000 customers using Jolly's on-premise solutions, Lobbytrack was on the forefront of the shockwave of lockdowns and social distancing restrictions unleashed by COVID-19. Suddenly, going to the office was not safe anymore. As more and more clients shifted to Lobbytrack Online, the need for cloud-based ACS became apparent. "Openpath was an easy pick because it is a touchless, cloud-based solution and has gained rapid market adoption," recalls Sandeep Jolly.

Just like Lobbytrack Online, Openpath access control can be managed fully via a browser interface on any web-enabled device. Authorized users can unlock the door with Openpath's digital Guest Pass feature by clicking a link sent via email or SMS, through a mobile app, or by simply waving their hand in front of the Openpath reader. Openpath hardware installs on standard wiring and works with legacy credentials like keycards and fobs.

The integration of the two systems will allow users to pre-register guests, screen visitors, conduct symptom waivers, and grant or restrict access remotely using one unified platform. Pre-approved visitors can enter the facility using a digital Guest Pass sent to their mobile phone, which supports custom permissions for temporary access. Unexpected guests can be admitted at any time by an authorized user unlocking the door remotely from anywhere in the Openpath app. Administrators and facility managers can also schedule programmable automatic touchless access for visitors, cleaning services, and deliveries.

Being a widely used VMS with nearly 15 years in the market, Lobbytrack integrates with almost every popular access control systems including AMAG, Brivo, DSX, Johnson Controls, Kantech, Lenel OnGuard, Primion, S2, and Software House C-Cure. With the cloud being the future of access control, Jolly Technologies is working on a solution that will enable on-premise ACS to be accessed via Lobbytrack Online.
