By automating existing reporting and business processes, credit unions can save thousands of hours each year while improving data analytics efforts. Using the entire Microsoft Business Intelligence stack (SQL, SSRS, SSIS, SSAS, and SharePoint), our business intelligence solutions can benefit credit unions of all sizes.
“Credit unions have a tremendous amount of data at their disposal. Partnering with the right outside consultants, CUSOs, and vendors can open up tremendous data-driven opportunities. OnApproach delivers a fantastic data warehouse to their customers that instantly drew me to them and their product. By combining their skills to deliver a high-quality data warehouse with The Knowlton Group’s ability to develop business intelligence solutions, we enable credit unions to do so much more with their data than they may have ever thought possible.” – Brewster Knowlton, Founder at The Knowlton Group
