Overview

There are several ways for hosted customers to connect to Avionté, allowing for different systems and configurations.  Each method requires a Company Code to connect.  Your Company Code is a three-character identifier that uniquely identifies your account. If you do not know your Company Code, contact your Client Manager and they will provide it to you.
