The use of webhooks enables you to be notified in real time in your favourite applications when a modification is made on orders in your AntsRoute account. In concrete terms, a webhook let you send an HTTP request to a specified URL in response to an event.
The automated sending of this information makes it possible to trigger workflows in the incoming application. For example, the creation of an invoice in your Quickbooks account as soon as a delivery is completed with AntsRoute.
