Minneapolis, MN (January 14, 2019) – OnApproach (, the leading provider of data/analytics solutions for credit unions, is excited to announce Empower Federal Credit Union (Syracuse, NY) is the latest to join the collaborative credit union data integration and analytics ecosystem after signing an agreement to implement OnApproach M360 Enterprise.

“The collaborative nature of OnApproach’s ecosystem provides highly unique opportunities that we intend to leverage to bring our data capabilities to the next level,” stated Jason Tedford, CIO, Empower Federal Credit Union. “We have been limited analytically by the number of data siloes across our organization. With the data integration provided by M360 Enterprise, we have big plans to enhance our organization’s decision-making as well as the lives of our members. It is exciting to engage with OnApproach and to be on the right track for successful enterprise analytics.”

Empower Federal Credit Union (asset size $1.7 Billion, core processor: Fiserv – DNA), 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, Empower Federal Credit Union can fully access core and ancillary system data seamlessly in the same system.

“We are thrilled to add Empower Federal Credit Union to our collaborative analytics ecosystem," said Paul Ablack, CEO, OnApproach. “Collaboration is the solution to the credit union industry’s data challenges. Traditional data warehousing is dead, but integrated data is more important than ever before. Empower FCU will now have access to the standardized data platform, which enables collaboration across credit unions for enhanced analytics, efficiencies, and decision-making. With M360 and the CU Analytics Ecosystem, Empower FCU is in a better position to succeed in 2019, and we are excited to be a part of their journey.”
