A global benchmark

The story behind the launch of El Canut was captured perfectly in a film, that premiered in Barcelona, entitled ‘In a few days. Attempts at sabotage, infiltrators and constant pressure aimed at derailing the birth of 11Onze as a Catalan community fintech.

11Onze-El-Canut-Banking-App

The project, however, dodged the problems, moved forward and now users have in their hands an application that has been recognised across the globe as an award-winning benchmark by the Vega Digital Awards (global), the Webbys (USA), UX Design Awards (Germany), The ADG Laus (Spain) and IDI Awards (Ireland).

About the Vega Digital Awards

The Vega Digital Awards are organised by the International Awards Associate (IAA) and they aim to celebrate digital excellence worldwide, recognising the very best in Websites, Video, Mobile, Social, Animation, Marketing, and Podcasts.

This year the judging panel was comprised of 22 experts from 10 countries. The theme for the 2022 Vega Awards is ‘Transcending Boundaries’ – to go beyond the common and to set ourselves apart.

11Onze is a Barcelona-based fintech that has done nothing but transcend boundaries since its launch, their mission is to empower the financial health and decisions of the Catalan community in Spain and abroad by creating an expansive resource, ‘El Canut‘.

The vision for the app was to offer customers the ability to manage all their bank accounts in one place, no matter what country they reside in. In addition, customers would be able to manage all their payments, transfers, savings and loans from one source – a one-stop-shop banking app.

‘El Canut’ is an old Catalan phrase that means purse. Unlike the old phrase, the product and service of 11Onze and El Canut was radically new for the Spanish and European markets. This was the key design challenge for our team; to design a disruptive banking app to coincide with the launch of a new way of delivering community banking and ‘transcending boundaries’.

WONDR està orgullós d’anunciar el llançament de La Plaça de 11Onze, la primera xarxa social privada dissenyada per atendre les necessitats financeres del poble català.

Treballant en estreta col·laboració amb 11Onze, l’equip internacional de WONDR amb seu a Dublín i Barcelona, ha desenvolupat una plataforma social per assolir l’objectiu central: la creació d’un servei fintech fundat i construït pel benefici de la comunitat catalana.
Mentre que les institucions financeres tradicionals creen plataformes digitals per vendre productes, 11Onze ha innovat per crear una xarxa social que serveixi activament el poble català i les seves necessitats. Aquesta diferenciació és el que defineix 11Onze.

El Netflix de les Fiances

“La Plaça” permet als clients tenir el control de les seves finances. A través de la plataforma, les barreres institucionals tradicionals s’han substituït aportant transparència i simplicitat en l’experiència. Els usuaris poden contactar directament amb els agents i poden veure el procés de selecció que es va realitzar a 11Onze.
“La Plaça” també és una extensa font de recursos, on els clients reben consells i visualitzen contingut útil a través de lliçons i vídeos. Es proporciona informació detallada sobre finances, inversions, estalvis, economia i sostenibilitat per tal que els usuaris puguin iniciar el seu camí cap a la sobirania financera personal.
Com s’espera d’una xarxa social, els usuaris poden comentar, marcar el contingut que els agrada, compartir articles i opinions. Respecte a la configuració de la plataforma, l’accessibilitat a la informació i el disseny impulsat per la intel·ligència artificial han ajudat a crear una experiència que s’adapta a cada individu i a les seves necessitats.

11Onze vol anar més enllà del que ofereixen les institucions financeres tradicionals per oferir allò que els clients esperen.

Com Cap Altre

11Onze vol anar més enllà del que ofereixen les institucions financeres tradicionals per oferir allò que els clients esperen, proporcionant-los una comprensió única i profunda de les seves finances, la nova economia, la sostenibilitat i l’ètica.
El resultat és una experiència digital totalment innovadora que uneix les necessitats dels usuaris, els requisits empresarials i la tecnologia d’una forma en què les institucions financeres i els clients no havien vist mai.

WONDR are proud to announce the launch of  La Plaça from 11Onze, the first private social network designed to serve the financial needs of the Catalan people.

 

Working in close collaboration with 11Onze, WONDR’s international team based out of Dublin and Barcelona have developed a social platform to realise 11Onze’s central purpose; the creation of a fintech service that is founded, built around and for the benefit of the Catalan community.

 

Where traditional financial institutions create websites to sell products, 11Onze has innovated to create a social network that actively serves the Catalan people and their needs. This ethos is what sets 11Onze.

The Netflix of Finance

“La Plaça” enables customers to take control of their financial destiny. Through the platform, institutional barriers have been replaced with transparency and clarity. Users can engage directly with brand ambassadors and are able to see the selection process of 11Onze agents.

 

“La Plaça” is also an expansive resource, where customers receive advice and view useful content through short online lessons and videos. By providing insightful information about finance, investment, savings, the economy and sustainability, the users can start their journey towards personal financial sovereignty.

 

As would be expected on a social network, users can comment, like and share articles and opinions. Behind the screen, informational accessibility and AI powered design has helped create an experience that shapes around the individual and their needs.

11Onze believes in going beyond what traditional financial institutions offer to deliver what customers expect.

Like No Other

11Onze believes in going beyond what traditional financial institutions offer to deliver what customers expect, by providing them with a unique and deep understanding of their finance, the new economy, sustainability, and ethics.

 

The result is a fully realised and innovative digital experience that places user needs, business requirements, and technology in tandem step with each other in a way that banking and customers have never seen before.

WONDR is proud to have been commissioned by the 11ONZE leadership team to set the digital vision, design and delivery for a new Catalan bank that will launch in 2021.

We believe this is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to be part of something truly meaningful; the creation of a digital-first bank that enables culture and empowers communities.

11ONZE will be an independent bank that directly supports Catalan society by providing the latest banking technology for private citizens, the self-employed, and small-to-medium-sized companies.

Creiem que és una oportunitat única, d’aquelles que sorgeix cada deu anys, la de poder formar part d’alguna cosa tant significativa; la creació d’un primer Banc Digital que permeti la cultura i doni la força al poble.

11ONZE serà un banc independent que donarà suport directament a la societat catalana proporcionant l’última tecnologia bancària per als ciutadans privats, autònoms i petites i mitjanes empreses.

The Catalan and Irish people understand each other and there is much respect between us. We share similar histories and a common ethos of community and cultural pride. Our talented creative team is led by a Catalan and we look forward to bringing our spirit together to create something unique that will deliver the future of banking for all.

Diarmuid Ó Sé Founder - WONDR

When WONDR first spoke to the leadership team in 11ONZE, we instantly knew this was a unique chance to create more than just a bank, but a cultural brand which places community and people at its centre.

11ONZE will play a significant and positive role in society by creating banking products that provide genuine innovation and financial sovereignty for its customers.

//

Quan WONDR va parlar per primera vegada amb l’equip que lidera 11ONZE, vam saber immediatament que era una oportunitat única per crear més que un banc, una veritable marca cultural que situa la comunitat i la gent al centre.

11ONZE tindrà un paper significatiu i positiu en la societat mitjançant la creació de productes bancaris que proporcionin innovació genuïna i sobirania financera per als seus clients.

Els catalans i els irlandesos ens entenem, tenim un vincle i respecte especial entre nosaltres. Compartim històries similars i un ethos comú d’orgull comunitari i cultural. El nostre equip creatiu està liderat per un català i esperem unir el nostre esperit per crear quelcom únic que oferirà el futur de la banca per a tothom.
