Earlier this week I released a list of AviMark Inventory Action codes in an effort to demystify the AviMark inventory module. The Treatment module has even more action codes than the Inventory Module. They offer some extremely helpful features. One of my favorites is the surcharge by item price or surcharge by item cost. Using that code, you can input a base price and then depending on the quantity used, it will increase the price to the client by price or cost of the quantity used.

Below you’ll find a table of all of the treatment action codes and what they accomplish.
