Slack as a quick and easy notification system
Time is money and notifications are key. An easy alternative to building a notification system is integrating Slack and using it to notify employees of certain events on your site.
The Slack API is powerful which means that you can set up your website as a ‘user’ and send notifications to specific channels and mention specific team members with ease. e.g. New user signup? Send the details to Noah. Error in the checkout? Send the log to Zakk
An Application Programming Interface (API) is an interface to a software system designed to allow access from another system.
