What is Zapier?
Zapier (www.zapier.com) is often referred to as being "the glue between web applications". It enables you to automate tasks between CHEQROOM and other online apps.
It can help you:
Send emails when a check out happens (e.g. via Mail by Zapier)
Keep your email lists up to date (e.g. via MailChimp)
Send out text messages (e.g. via Twilio)
Post a chat message (e.g. via Slack)
