Ideal Credit Union Partners with Data Analytics CUSO, CU Rise, and OnApproach for Reporting Suite Optimization and Analytics
Vienna, Va. (August, 2018 )- CU Rise Analytics, a Virginia-based, global CUSO providing data science and technology enablement solutions to credit unions, is excited to announce that Ideal Credit Union has signed on for a robust reporting suite as well as data analytics to create exceptional member experiences. CU Rise will build a reporting and analytics solution for Ideal CU in collaboration with OnApproach, a data/analytics solutions CUSO.

“We look forward to working with CU Rise on the creation and implementation of a holistic approach to reporting,” said Dennis Bauer, Ideal CU CFO. “Efficiently built and distributed, interactive and customizable reports are the foundation for sharing accurate information across Ideal Credit Union. We see this as critical to the long term success for our credit union and members.”

Like most credit unions, Ideal CU ($700 MM in assets) has an abundance of data from a variety of sources making it difficult to access and understand. A robust reporting system will also end the credit union’s need to re-create reports if there is a change in their core technology platform or any of the integrated channel solutions. Ideal CU is relying on CU Rise to build a superior reporting system that will adapt to any changes to their multiple systems.

“We welcome Ideal Credit Union onboard as they work toward closing the reporting gap many credit unions face. Now more than ever, credit unions have the opportunity to hone their data through reporting to provide more accurate analytics,” said Karan Bhalla, CU Rise CEO.
