The OnApproach Story

OnApproach began in 2005, and has been growing rapidly ever since. From our beginnings as a data consulting company to launching our own M360 Enterprise software solution, we’ve made it our goal to provide credit unions with the means to transform their data into actionable goals.


OnApproach has 47 clients and renames its conference to the Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference (AXFI), co-sponsored with Best Innovation. Group. AXFI is held in Minneapolis in June.


OnApproach transitions from a data warehouse consulting company to a software company specializing in credit unions by becoming a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO). The initial investors in the CUSO are Denali Alaskan FCU, Anchorage, AK and Ideal Credit Union, St. Paul, MN. OnApproach starts the Big Data/Analytics Conference for credit unions, in Minneapolis, MN.


OnApproach begins as a data consulting company. In six years, OnApproach completes over 50 major projects for Fortune 500 companies, like Toro and
Land O’ Lakes.


OnApproach announces the CU Analytics Platform, a collaborative ecosystem of credit unions, data scientists, and application developers. The
AXFI Conference, co-sponsored by OnApproach, has great growth and success with 250+ attendees & 70+ credit unions represented.


OnApproach acquires Technology Navigator, a CUSO, from First Flight CU, Cary, NC. OnApproach hosts the second Big Data/Analytics Conference. OnApproach is awarded a patent for OnApproach M360.


OnApproach completes a major reporting and analytics project
for a credit union client and realizes many other credit
unions could benefit from a standard enterprise data integration solution.
