“La Plaça is what makes us unique. It’s an innovative fincom – a fusion of a social network and a fintech to deliver community driven financial services.

La Plaça started as a digital experience that combined social networking with a learning management system (LMS) and has since evolved into a community place for our members to buy products and services.

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.

Fundador

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.

Dermot O'Shea WONDR
Founder

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.

We are thrilled to be part of this fast-moving bank’s plans to further deliver on its digital first strategy.

We will be mobilising our team to become immersed in the KBC customer journey, the why’s and how’s of their financial needs, in order to create a new experience that makes it easier for them to bank with KBC.

We have been working with KBC for a number of years on CSR initiatives such as KBC Bright Ideas, where we delivered a platform to help them support communities across Ireland with funding for local initiatives.

For the KBC.ie project, we’ll be working on discovery, UX, UI and development phases to launch a new experience in 2020.
