Central is FixSpec's flagship enterprise product, designed to significantly improve real-time business monitoring of trading connections, and accelerate customer onboarding with unique online project management tools. 

Key Features

Central uses cutting-edge search engine technology to monitor, parse and search trading connections in real time, visually displaying message flows as directional arrows on a scrolling timeline.  Designed with non-technical staff in mind, the UI is both simple and functionally rich, allowing users to quickly find messages and navigate to a chain of events.Sitting within your infrastrucutre, Central watches all of your traffic and alerts you to errors such as badly formatted messages, inactive clients, and our patent-pending algorithm to detect software and/or behavioural change by trading counterparties which may pose a technical or compliance risk.Because it sees your traffic and understands your specification, Central can also run on-the-spot certifications based on activity in your environments (even production). The onboarding job of scouring log files to capture evidence of correctly constructed certification messages can now be performed in a single click.
