Integrate ClickSend with Your Enterprise Resource Planning Software
Integrate ClickSend through our API or check out our no-code options. Using an online automations tool like Zapier, you can setup integrations without needing to engage your tech developers. Simply choose which two applications you want to integrate and choose your trigger and the resulting action. This is called a zap.
Send inventory updates by text message
Simply set up a zap that fires when inventory changes, triggering an SMS to be sent. This can be used to alert contractors or suppliers of stock levels, remind staff of new product lines being launched or for marketing to notify customers when the items they want have been restocked.

Through integrating the ClickSend Online Post, once an invoice, order or quote is raised, you can trigger a letter to be mailed straight to the recipient. From there, our print centre will automatically print, fold, envelope and dispatch your letter, saving you hours in printing and mailing.
