About Valcori

Valcori embodies the three pillars of all sourcing decisions: value, cost and risk.

Anchored by 92 years of combined sourcing and tendering experience by our product owners, Valcori is uniquely positioned to help businesses from all industries and sizes.

Our mission

Enable sourcing teams to save time in their tendering process and create sustainable relationships with their suppliers.

Our Story

Sourcing and tendering are a game changer in every business and can offer a competitive advantage.

Traditionally, tenders mainly tend to focus on price, require manual work, lack the necessary transparency to internal stakeholders and do overlook the added value of suppliers.

These inefficiencies often consume limited resources that can be utilized more efficiently in value adding sourcing work. All of which impacts the bottom line of companies. 

For that reason, we created Valcori, a digital platform that transforms your tendering journey from a routine task to a competitive business advantage.

A meeting with the Valcori team.

Valcori’s driving forces Stef Brismoutier, Frank Deferm & Kris Smet have a combined professional experience of 100+ years in procurement and supply chain across all industries.

Their experience covers strategic definition, category management, sourcing, tendering, procurement, purchasing and S2C as well as P2P roles.


They earned their credits in procurement, started their careers boots on the ground and evolved from tactical functions to strategic roles. In 2020, they partnered up with the innovative product studio Panenco to turn their expertise into

a state-of-the-art digital platform.

We are devoted to share our tendering learnings to help businesses from all industries and all sizes.
