How do I set up an HTTPS Post to send data to another CRM

I already have everything set up to send a post request to another CRM. It was done for me by a devolper, I need to create another one for a new company. Where do I get started?? Thanks for any help!

Are you trying to do this from salesforce i.e in apex, or from outside salesforce? What CRM is it? Some larger CRM's will have toolkits, or getting started guides for interacting with there api's which could help.

I'm doing it from within Salesforce with APEX. I'm not sure the type of CRM it's going to but it's a huge company. They gave me posting instructions with an https URL to post the data to.

From apex you are going to use the HTTP, and HTTPRequest class, also the HTTPResponse class if you are expecting a response. I would go over that doc, it has an overview to get started making HTTP requests in apex. Once you have a method to make your callout, you will need to create a trigger and a future method which will allow you to make the request on dml, or a visualforce page that can execute your request.
