How Requana works
On the website, users can either sign up of a professional or client. When requests are made, clients fill in necessary details and are matched to preferred professionals. Unlike several competitors, the platform isn’t restricted to smartphone users or those with internet access. Requests can also be made via a short code service. By texting Req to 33811 from any phone type, Requana is notified that someone has a project that needs attention.
This, according to the founder, results in a wider user base and more extensive reach. It also facilitates their vision which is “to ensure that people are connected to the best professionals who will offer excellent services and bring more clients to professionals easier and faster through technology,” Emmanuel explains.
