Plymouth, MN (March 5th, 2015) – OnApproach (, the leading provider of Big Data and Analytics for credit unions, is pleased to announce TopLine Federal Credit Union (TopLine) has made a CUSO investment with OnApproach.  TopLine selected OnApproach as its Big Data/Analytics provider in 2012.

The credit union industry is on the cusp of a significant challenge with the potential to disrupt the financial services landscape as we know it. Big Data/Analytics is driving a new breed of analytic competitors (e.g. - Lending Clubs, Google, Apple Pay, Amazon, Facebook, etc.) into what has been a very traditional marketplace. These new entrants are interested in skimming the profitable transaction side of the business while leaving the less profitable and highly regulated settlement side to the banks and credit unions.

As a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO), OnApproach is fully committed to providing credit unions with the most robust, yet affordable, Big Data/Analytics solution.  Paul Ablack, CEO of OnApproach, Stated “The management team at TopLine brings an analytic perspective to the credit union industry and have been a strategic partner in our product development. We are thrilled to have them as an investor and board member.”

“We were one of the early adopters of OnApproach’s M360 technology because we understand the importance of analytics and believed in their vision. We are excited to have a role in shaping the future of the company while generating a return for our members,” said Tom Smith, TopLine Federal Credit Union President and CEO.
