We sat down with Jaime Barriga Amin, VP of Finance at OpenZeppelin, to learn more about how he and the team use LiveFlow.
OpenZeppelin is the premier crypto cybersecurity technology and services company, trusted by the most used DeFi and NFT projects. Founded in 2015 with the mission to protect the open economy, OpenZeppelin safeguards tens of billions of dollars in funds for leading crypto organisations including Coinbase, Ethereum Foundation, Compound, Aave, TheGraph, and many others.
Currently, the Finance Team is made up of three people. A Vice President who oversees the department, an FP&A Lead and a Finance Operations Analyst. We’re currently in the process of adding a Senior Manager Controller to transition all accounting in-house.
We use a multitude of software to run our organisation. I’ll highlight the ones more relevant to Finance.
Our main priorities were to reduce the time it takes to generate consolidated financials and to generate automatic reports that the management team can use to generate insights. LiveFlow has been very successful in solving both.
LiveFlow came up as a solid solution to connect directly with Quickbooks and draw insights live. The templates are flexible enough to generate custom reports that meet the company’s requirements. Additionally, customer support was impressive from day 1, with the LiveFlow team supporting onboarding and set up very proactively.

LiveFlow has upgraded our Financial Reporting processes considerably, from 10 to 3 days. Having a live view of performance across entities not only simplifies reporting processes but provides ongoing strategic insights to management. I very much recommend it.
The flexibility that the team has provided so far, incorporating feedback from us as customers is a very valuable quality. We see how they are prioritising customer feedback to make decisions on upcoming features, which makes us customers feel we are heard and included in the build process.
