OnApproach and Best Innovation Group partner to provide educational analytics-based podcast series

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (May 4, 2017) — OnApproach (, the leading provider of Big Data and Analytics solutions for credit unions, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Best Innovation Group (BIG) to provide a podcast series focused on credit union analytics, titled the Data Analytics BIGcast Series.

The Data Analytics Series is comprised of five parts and highlights various perspectives of analytics, including input from industry experts of Thrive Strategic Services, Deep Future Analytics, The Knowlton Group, BankBI, OnApproach and a bonus session with Banker/Consultant, Seven Simpson.  Ranging from data normalization to CECL, data pooling, and member experience, this podcast series explores all sides of analytics relevant to credit unions.

“It is vital for credit unions to understand the role of data and analytics in financial services today. In order to continue to compete in this industry, Credit Union executives must understand the significance of analytics. However, similar to shared branching or ATM networks, advanced and actionable analytics is a big challenge for credit unions and we intend for this podcast series to help credit unions better understand the topic,” stated Paul Ablack, CEO, OnApproach.

“We all have to be data-driven in terms of our results and… for so long it’s been using a shotgun approach when really we need to be spearfishing”, said John Best, CEO, Best Innovation Group.

OnApproach is developing a collaborative ecosystem centered on the OnApproach M360 Enterprise (M360) platform. M360 Enterprise is an industry standard data integration platform that can be configured to work with any credit union (on or off premise) regardless of asset size or system configuration. A key feature of M360 is the open development platform that is available to developers that have an interest in creating applications (reporting, analytic or member facing) that can be easily acquired and installed on M360 via an Application Market. OnApproach is constantly expanding its network of credit unions, CUSOs and vendors that make up the core of its developer network with the goal of providing an ever increasing volume of analytics and innovation for the credit union industry.
