By offering the EquipmentWatch API, the potential to streamline existing workflows and build innovative new solutions for the heavy equipment industry is limitless.

Bringing data into the user's workflow

Thousands of construction, finance, dealer and insurance customers currently use the EquipmentWatch web application to make critical business decisions regarding the acquisition, management and disposition of heavy equipment. By offering the new API - the exact technology that powers the EquipmentWatch web application - industry professionals now have the opportunity to fully integrate EquipmentWatch data into the systems they use every day. "We've had discussions with forward-thinking companies who want to leverage our endpoints in their CRMs, accounting applications, underwriting software and more," explains Garrett Schemmel, vice president of EquipmentWatch. "The efficiency that can be gained through streamlined workflows and perpetually up-to-date data will create an enormous competitive advantage for these businesses."

Endless potential for innovation

The EquipmentWatch API includes the traditional data benchmarks the brand is known for such as ownership & operating costs, retail rental rates, specifications, serial number verification and equipment values (FMV, OLV, FLV). Additionally, new data attributes have been made available for the first time including asset utilization, market popularity, value trending and raw market transactions. "Along with our traditional benchmarks, we're excited to see how entrepreneurs will leverage these new data attributes to build solutions for the heavy equipment industry," added Garrett.
