SEQUESTO is a Belgian tech startup (incorporated mid 2020), offering a platform that automates and optimises the process of participating in RFPs, RFIs, tenders… which is a time-consuming, repetitive and complex business challenge many small, mid-sized and large companies face.

As a technology provider for sales productivity, we

  • simplify this complex process and automate most of the repetitive tasks ;

By equipping tender professionals with advanced technology, they can focus on adding value for the customer, while the SEQUESTO platform handles all time consuming, repetitive and low value tasks throughout the whole tender process.
