Top 5 Reasons to Attend the 2017 Analytics and Financial Innovation (AXFI) Conference

Industry disruption should be on the forefront of a credit union CEO’s mind. As we have seen in the last couple of years, the abundance of data and mobile technology is dramatically accelerating the pace at which new competitors can enter a market and acquire significant market share within two to three years.

To help credit unions prepare and respond to industry disruption, the AXFI conference organizers have assembled many experts, thought leaders, and innovators to provide deep insights and perspectives for the ALL levels of credit union management that cannot be found in any other credit union conference.

Here are 5 reasons why you should attend AXFI 2017:

  1. Pick Your Track and Learn from the Best – The AXFI Conference has something for everyone. Title Sponsor, OnApproach, has partnered with Best Innovation Group to provide you the option of participating in either the Analytics track or the Financial Innovation track.

  2. Analytics App Contest – The finalists of the contest for the best analytics app will be announced and have a chance to present their work. The contest will be launched soon to award the individual or organization that creates the best app for credit unions. The finalists will present apps that are easily downloaded and utilizable at other credit unions and provide measurable value in one or more of the following areas: creating value for the member, better measurement of credit union performance, enabling the creation of new products or discovering new marketing opportunities. This is an incredible experiential opportunity to discover innovation in the credit industry and how developers are helping credit unions make deeper connections with their members while also improving the financial health of the credit union.
