Installing SPEC2000 is normally a straightforward process but some users may feel more comfortable with Blue Flag Technologies assisting directly.

Should you require detailed assistance, the current preferred method for Installation and Training is by means of remote access software such as PC Anywhere Microsoft Net Meeting or WIN Vnc etc.

Training should ideally take place in groups of about three people. If a large number of users require training, there are two options.

  1. Train a selection of two or three staff to a high level and allow them to train the other users. This way, key people have a detailed knowledge of the system and can help and support other users within your company.
  2. You can opt for a lecture-style training session which imparts the knowledge but has less hands-on experiential learning during the session.

For companies with no SPEC2000 experience, we recommend two days of training. On the first day, we will install the software then spend the rest of the day taking the users through the fundamental use of SPEC2000, how to add customer/supplier details and the basics of message sending and receiving. The second day concentrates on more detailed functionality of the software - the `bells and whistles' which make the use of SPEC2000 quicker and more efficient. The second day will also focus on any issues raised by users.

If the basics of SPEC2000 have already been mastered by your users, you may decide to opt for just one day or more detailed training.
