Minneapolis, MN (August 2, 2018) – OnApproach (, the leading provider of data/analytics solutions for credit unions, is excited to announce Financial Partners Credit Union (Downey, CA) is the latest to join the collaborative Credit Union Data Integration and Analytics Ecosystem after signing an agreement to implement OnApproach M360 Enterprise.

“Analytics has been a successful initiative at Financial Partners, but we realized we needed something more expansive than what we had built internally. We are very excited to engage OnApproach to take our capabilities to the next level,” stated Nader Moghaddam, President/CEO, Financial Partners Credit Union. “Our data warehouse helped us realize the potential value derived from member data, but any standalone warehouse solution has critical limitations. The need to effectively utilize predictive analytics made it apparent that the time was right for us to switch to a more scalable, advanced and forward-looking solution. M360 Enterprise and the CU Analytics Ecosystem will put us in the best position to further advance our analytic capabilities and ultimately provide the best possible experience to our growing membership.”

OnApproach Launches the CU App Store to Drive Collaborative Analytics for Credit Unions

Posted by Mark Portz on Jun 7, 2018 1:02:53 PM



Minneapolis, MN (June 7, 2018) – OnApproach (, the only CUSO dedicated to credit union success through a collaborative analytics ecosystem, is excited to announce the launch of the Credit Union App Store (CU App Store). The CU App Store is the online marketplace for credit unions to discover and immediately access applications designed to solve a variety of business problems, and improve data and analytical capabilities for all credit unions.

The CU App Store was developed because it is too often that credit unions must “re-invent the wheel” by building reports and dashboards that are similar across their peer groups. This creates incredible inefficiencies throughout the industry. As a CUSO, OnApproach is determined to help transform the industry and ensure a healthy future for all credit unions. The CU App Store brings together credit unions, CUSOs, and industry vendors to share the time and resource burden required to execute high value reporting and analytics, regardless of technology or core. By utilizing the CU App Store, credit unions have the opportunity to shift their time from report creation to consumption and analysis of useful information.
