Get Money Where It Needs to Go

Margin Makers is a newsletter for anyone responsible for spending at work. We curate practical guides and original ideas for finance and procurement teams to help them do their jobs better. A big part of that is gaining buy-in from other people — whether in legal or marketing or engineering — to get them what they need to do their work. So we talk a lot about how to make purchasing better for them, too.

Here's what you can expect from us:

Original thoughts on managing spend

More than just getting a seat at the table. Expect insightful takes on how modern finance and procurement teams run. Learn how people, process and technology intersect to deliver value for everyone who touches spend.

Securing margins requires planning ahead. Build alignment to deliver the value you know your team can bring.  

How-to guides for finance and procurement

Oversee 100% of external spend. Build and scale an accessible purchasing process. Get the ROI you expect from your technology.

These aren't fantasies. But they do take time. We'll help you get there.

Collaborate with people like you

Join and learn from a community of professionals who make sure revenue hits the bottom line. Expect first-hand accounts of wins (and missteps) from peers.

From intake to pay — and everything in between

Margin Makers is a publication from Zip, the world's leading intake-to-procure platform. We do a lot of other stuff, too. But this is the last time you'll hear about that.

This newsletter is about you and the people you collaborate with to buy things. Not about Zip.

When you sign up, you will never get sales, product or news announcements from Zip. Just interesting, useful content. Although if you want to hear more about those topics, we're happy to keep you in the loop.
