Various companies sell full color transfers, some advertise them as 4 color process and some advertise them as digital prints. The 4 color process is self explanatory but what are the digital prints? Are they some kind of commercial ink jet transfer? I'm concerned about durability and quality.

F&M - Freedom (4 color process)
Universal - digital prints
Transfer Express - digital prints
Dowling - 4 color process
Versatranz - 4 color process

I used to work in a screenprinting shop and have made normal spot color transfers but I have no idea how full color transfers are made if anyone cares to enlighten me. Thanks.

Not sure what Universal uses.
I found samples that Universal had sent me and I had forgotten about. Their digital prints are what they sound like, some type of inkjet transfer. No idea what equipment they use.

Some of the commercial inkjets inks are pretty durable though. I used to print full color vinyl banners with HP inkjets that used UV resistant, waterproof inks. We hung one of those banners outside for over a year and it didn't fade. Don't know if the Versacamm style inks are just as tough but they could be.
