Approval workflows

Generate approval chains based on request details. Zip automatically loops in the right approvers and gives requesters full visibility of the process, leading to faster approvals and lower coordination costs.

Vendor management

Streamline your vendor relationships with an all-in-one solution. Create a single source of truth for vendor data, so cross-functional teams can collaborate on risk reviews and contracts.
