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.
