Specialized has a BG Fit product line and also a BG Fit service that will fit you to your bike (or vice versa), regardless of whether the bike/parts are made by Specialized. IMO, there's nothing magic about either the BG Fit parts or the fitting service. In fact, I'd have to say that BG Fit saddles are universally the worst saddles I've ever ridden! I've tried a number of them and they were all terrible for me.
Remember: the Specialized ass-o-meter only works for Specialized saddles. There's no universal way to measure saddle width or sit bone width, so the numbers you get from Specialized won't necessarily apply to any other saddle brand.
The fit service probably has a much to do with the person doing the fitting as anything else. I haven't had a BG Fit, but I have watched the process. Didn't seem to be much different than any professional fit I've had done... unless you get to the Supremo-level fit that uses lasers, video cameras... and $300 from your wallet.
