The SPEC2000 Suite of Software

Blue Flag Technologies offers a range of SPEC2000 software to ensure that your organisation gets the most from SPEC2000.

The SPEC2000 installation can be a standalone implementation to allow automatic receipt and acknowledgement of SPEC2000 messages and also manual entry of messages. The SPEC2000 messages will be automatically formatted and verified to ensure that your communications with your trading partners is quick and easy.

If you wish, SPEC2000 messaging can be integrated into your host system using Blue Flag Technologies' SPECCOMM Plus. This additional product is a versatile, flexible application allowing SPEC2000 messaging to be integrated with the minimum fuss to any format that your host system already uses. This can be a flat-ASCII file of fixed or variable length, or even direct into your host system’s database.

Blue Flag Technologies' SPEC2000 utilises a communications layer to send and receive messages across many transport Value Added Networks like ARINC, SITA, Aeroxchange (via ARINC or SITA), FTP, SFTP etc.

Blue Flag Technologies’ XML Processor can increase system value by allowing real time XML communications with your trading partners in real-time. The traffic does not have to comply with the A4A's SPEC2000 Standard as separate business logic can be used. Optionally, the traffic can also be audited to your existing SPEC2000 application's message summaries, where it can be viewed like a standard message.

The Blue Flag Technologies’ SPEC2000 Message Portal allows your non SPEC2000 customers to enquire on your stock levels, or to place orders directly into your SPEC2000 system without the need for a conventional VAN (Value added Network).

The Blue Flag Technologies SPEC2000 suite of software is designed to meet your needs now and into the future.

From a single user SPEC2000 system processing a limited number of messages, to a multi-user SPEC2000 SPECCOMM Plus direct database host integration system processing many thousands of messages, Blue Flag Technologies has the solution for you.


Blue Flag Technologies is an approved, independent, SPEC2000 software vendor, providing flexible and upgradeable SPEC2000 messaging and database solutions for your immediate and long-term requirements.

Whether you are starting out with just one Trading Partner or requiring an automated integrated SPEC2000 solution, Blue Flag Technologies can help you maximise your SPEC2000 potential, supporting you all the way.

The SPECCOMM Plus application automates your chosen SPEC2000 messages, thus enabling direct file transfer to a selection of databases e.g. MS-SQL, Oracle, Informix, Sybase, Ingres, DB2, MS Access, ODBC etc., otherwise creating an ASCII file for transfer into your application.
