“Our investment in ACCESS HRA allowed us to pivot very quickly during the pandemic to make more services available. We turned on cash assistance in two weeks, and we went from 10% to 90% of benefits applications completed online. Because of the Merative tool we’re better able to serve New Yorkers in their time of need."

“We were able to stand up a new system in 15 weeks in order to process 3.7 million unemployment insurance benefit applications. That would have taken us 12-24 months in our legacy systems.”
