💰 Romanian flex platform makes menu and payment acquisition

Pluria, founded by Andrei Cretu and Gabriela Draghia, the platform that focusses on connecting distributed teams with nearby workspaces (predominantly in Latin America and Europe) announced that they’ve acquired Bili a solution for menu ordering and payments used by cafés.

This acquisition helps the platform provide better experiences to the F&B focussed locations within their networks, which sometimes include traditional cafés which are now "part of the new work infrastructure".

🚀 LATAM flex space app sees bookings soar 4x

Andrei Cretu shares that Pluria have seen a 4x increase in bookings for flex spaces across Latin America (600+ spaces in 15 countries) via their app.

I confirmed with Andrei, that this is a 4x increase in bookings, and not a 4x increase in spaces listed. Good to see utilization growing across the region!

🥳 A great example of a booking app exploring more viral-loops.

Andrei Cretu shares how Pluria have added functionality to quickly invite guests (via links or email) to join them for bookings they’ve made within the app.

I’ve been watching closely to see which booking apps nail the viral-loop of bringing more and more teammates, colleagues, coworkers, friends and consultants into their apps. Having a strong viral loop (think how dropbox spread by giving away free storage space, or paypal gave away $5 for each invite) not only brings in more app users, but could drive business to the spaces who are listed on those platforms. Expect to see A LOT more of this.

😍 Another glowing review for app-based flex space access

Andrei Cretu reshared a comment by Maria José Piñeros noting how they (Genially) closed one of their 2 offices and switched to giving their team worldwide coworking access via Pluria.

Always great to see people involved with talent acquisition share that their teams love remote, but also seeing their colleagues when they feel like it. Well said.
