Guardian Credit Union partners with OnApproach for data analytics and digital transformation

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (December 5, 2018) — OnApproach (, the leading provider of data/analytics solutions for credit unions, is excited to announce Guardian Credit Union (Montgomery, AL) is the latest to join the collaborative credit union data integration and analytics ecosystem after signing an agreement to implement OnApproach M360 Enterprise.

“Data analytics represents a major strategic priority for our credit union in 2019,” stated Heath Harrell, CEO, Guardian Credit Union. “Data siloes across various systems used by our organization have created constraints on our analytic capabilities, and ultimately, our member service. We are looking forward to finally having a single source of truth to access all our data. Integrated and reliable data accounts for a key piece of enabling our data strategy, and M360 Enterprise will help to accomplish this goal.”

Guardian Credit Union (asset size $487 Million, core processor: Symitar – Episys), will now have access to the collaborative analytics platform that provides standardized data, a single source of truth, and access to the collaborative CU Analytics Ecosystem. Data integration has been a daunting task for credit unions, but by implementing OnApproach M360 Enterprise, Guardian Credit Union can fully access core and ancillary system data seamlessly in the same system.

“As has been proven time and again across the industry, tackling advanced analytics is a tremendous challenge for an individual credit union,” said Paul Ablack, CEO, OnApproach. “We are happy to welcome Guardian Credit Union to the collaborative CU Analytics Ecosystem. By leveraging the standardized M360 data platform, Guardian Credit Union will be able to not only access their cleansed data, but they can also collaborate with a growing number of other credit unions on the platform for reporting and advanced analytics initiatives. From data warehousing to actionable analytic outputs, credit unions are no longer alone on their data journeys. The CU Analytics Ecosystem empowers credit unions of any size to access the resources required to compete with the best in analytics.”
