Our client is planning to create a PDF generation system externally. They would like to send Shopify order information to that system and create PDF data externally. Can Shopify flow be used to send Rest API to an external system when an order is placed?

Depending on your integration requirements it's likely that might be perfect for you. If not there will be other options from listening to webhooks or building a some middleware to connect the systems together.
