Atlanta, GA – (December 12, 2016) – Price Digests, the leading asset data provider to the Commercial Insurance and Equipment Finance markets, has relaunched its internet presence at PriceDigests.com, the online home for its historic brands, which include Truck Blue Book, Auto Red Book, ABOS Marine Blue Book, as well as other notable brands. Additionally, a wave of new, innovative API solutions will be launching through the first quarter of 2017.

about their next generation needs, we’re excited to be launching new data capabilities to support data integration directly into their internal workflow.”
