Plymouth, MN (September 8, 2014) – OnApproach, a leading provider of reporting and analytics solutions for credit unions, has formed a partnership with Deep Future Analytics to add loan risk modeling and analytics apps to its ever-expanding application store.


OnApproach Founder and President Paul Ablack commented that “we are committed to building a Big Data/Analytics Ecosystem for credit unions that will allow them to gain efficiencies, leverage the full potential of their data, and collectively share reports, dashboards, and applications with other credit unions.” A crucial part of this ecosystem is the OnApproach Applications Store. This store offers applications enabling credit unions to streamline and optimize all facets of their business.

In partnering with Deep Future Analytics, OnApproach is pleased to offer two new apps: Loan Analytic and Portfolio Analytics. These applications provide enhanced credit risk forecasting based on product level lifecycle effects, score at origination, environment and vintage. The model also supports portfolio stress testing based on a wide range of economic scenarios for all outputs.

Furthermore, these applications are based on pooled data confidentially and collectively shared among numerous credit unions. These applications utilize the magnitude of data shared by credit unions to identify patterns and behaviors, gain valuable insights, and apply predictive analytics to tailor products and services. A single credit union would never have access to this volume of data on its own.

Joe Breeden, Prescient Models President/CEO and member of Deep Futures Analytics, said “We want to enable credit unions to jump ahead in loan origination and account management while still being cautious through the downturns. These are the best models I’ve seen – loan-level, forward-looking, scenario-driven, and technically precise.”
