Minneapolis, MN (July 28, 2016) - OnApproach (, a leading provider of Big Data and Analytics for credit unions, is pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference (AXFI) Best Practices Competition.

The Best Practices Competition introduces a forum that allows credit unions to share these ideas with each other so that they too can benefit from this knowledge. At the 2016 Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference, there were three finalists selected to showcase their hottest reporting, dashboarding, and/or analytics work product in the Best Practices Competition. The goal of the competition is to help the credit union industry become more analytically driven by collaborating and sharing best practices.

The three finalists that presented their work at the 2016 Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference were: Empower Federal Credit Union, Oregon Community Credit Union, and Sunshine Coast Credit Union.

Of the three finalists that presented, Empower Federal Credit Union’s Sales and Service Program was selected by the panel of judges, comprised of industry experts, as the winner of the competition.   Todd Wolfe, Director of Application Development and Business Intelligence at Empower Federal Credit Union presented their Sales and Service Program at the 2016 AXFI Analytics Competition. This program provides members with a data-driven personalized experience when interacting with members via various channels. Integrated into the CORE banking system, it provides the front line staff the most important and relevant data to converse with the member they are interacting with.

Todd Wolfe, Director of Application Development and Business Intelligence at Empower stated, “The Sales and Service Program has made a significant improvement to our front line. It has proven incredibly valuable to be able to interact with members on a more personal level.
