The Customer Type Code field on the Customer Information screen and the Cust Code (Customer Code) field on the Start Repair Order screen are normally used by Ford dealerships for their Customer Loyalty ID numbers. However, these fields can be used by non-Ford dealerships to group their customers for customer management purposes.
