Raiffeisen Landesbank Oberösterreich has a very extensive (analogue) network from which Raiffeisen customers in particular benefit. Raiffeisen had the idea to make this network available digitally to a larger target group and to develop a business model from it.

V_labs supported Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich in validating and sharpening the problem and idea. In the course of several design sprints, prototypes were developed and validated with potential customers. Based on very positive feedback, it was decided to implement the concept.Consequently, V_labs implemented findea together with RLB Oberösterreich, outside the group structures, as an own start-up. Within 6 months, a first version of the digital platform was developed. In cooperation with the RLB project team, we were able to bring all our competences into the project: From the development of CI/CD and brand to UX/UI design, IT development, conception of the digital service and business model to extensive online and offline marketing. The launch of the platform took place in stages: First in-house within the RLB, then it was opened to all the Raiffeisen banks in Upper Austria. In this phase, already more than 2,000 users were on-boarded. Since December 2021, we have been addressing the third-party market and are pleased about the very rapid user growth!
