Customer Fun Fact:

Reaching across the pond to help French families and the government

Based in Paris, the Caisse Nationale d’Allocations Familiales (CNAF) is a large, public sector agency with 102 locations that serves as France’s Social Security Department and is charged with distributing family allowance funds to more than 10 million beneficiaries each year. In order to calculate the benefit allocations, CNAF considers a number of factors including child welfare, housing and education. Using Altair Monarch, CNAF runs more than 195 automated processes on up to 8,000 files and sends close to four gigabytes of data to a secure, centralized Document Management System nightly. CNAF’s accountants have saved thousands of hours related to data processing, increasing the agency’s efficiency as well as security of the data through the use of a centralized hub.
