OnApproach and Big Announce 2017 Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference


Minneapolis, MN (October 13th, 2016) – OnApproach (www.onapproach.com), the leading provider of Big Data and Analytics for credit unions, is pleased to announce it will be hosting, in collaboration with Best Innovation Group, the 4th annual Analytics & Financial Innovation (AXFI) Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, June 11th-14th, 2017.

The retail financial services industry is under immense pressure to change and credit unions will have to find a way to re-invent themselves in the next few years in order to remain relevant and competitive. At the heart of this re-invention will be harnessing the value of their vast troves of data to develop closer relationships with their members. There are many new start-ups and technologies that create a broad base of options for credit union leadership to map their future. “AXFI is a forum that brings a new breed of thinking about how technology can not only help us in the next 6 months but also in the next 3 to 5 years”, said Paul Ablack, CEO, OnApproach. 

“As a veteran of this industry and an avid technologist, I have never seen a time like this where traditional areas like payments and loan origination have been under this level of disruptive pressure. At some point they will figure it out and then it will be too late. I believe that Credit Unions have the skills to disrupt in this space but we need to move now”, said John Best, CEO, Best Innovation Group.

The 2017 Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference will focus on providing education and insight into Big Data, Analytics and innovative technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain. The goal of conference will be to bring credit unions together to explore ways to network and collaborate on ideas and experiences to figure out how to best leverage these trends for the benefits of the credit union model.

The Analytics and Innovation conference started four years ago with a small group of technology enthusiasts. It has since grown to over 250 credit unions professional ranging from analysts to CEOs and has become the premier event for analytics and innovation in the Credit Unions industry.  “We are excited to host yet another great conference that is guaranteed to be exciting, educational, and immediately valuable to the credit union industry and its members”, said Austin Wentzlaff, Director of Business Development at OnApproach.
