What is a REST API?
Representational state transfer (REST) or RESTful web services are one way of providing interoperability between computer systems. REST-compliant web services allow requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of web resources using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations. Other forms of web service exist, which expose their own arbitrary sets of operations such as WSDL and SOAP.

ClickPoint Software has officially released a REST API to extend developer tools that enable easy integration and customization with their lead management solutions. ClickPoint clients rely on real-time updates of lead data and the need for a new REST API was critical for our entire community of users. ClickPoint developed the API to allow developers to gain access to their lead data, user data, and integrations, that enable best of breed software solutions to talk to one another.
