The inventory on the Magento site will be held in a warehouse for a third party who will ship the order. Is there a way to configure Magento CE make the orders automated so when one is placed the third-party receives this order by email or by sending data to their web service?

Right now when an order is placed by a user, you have to look into the admin site and get the order details and forward to the fulfillment warehouse manually.

If email meets your requirement, you can simply add the vendors email to the list of people that should receive order emails.

Configuration>sales>sales emails>Order>Send Order Email Copy To

For their web service, you could hook into the Magento API if you have a developer on hand.
