passing variables in to prepopulate cart

Hi there, I have a possible client who has 8 product colors and as many designs configurations. That resulted in as many as 5,000 configurations that a buyer could choose. The developer originally did the clients site in flash but wanted to avoid creating 5000 SKU’s so they set up Magento for them.

My question is, can they still choose their product configuration through the flash site, then when they click purchase product, export the product and option variables they chose in the flash into Magento, so that it automatically populated the cart with their chosen design, rather than forcing them to complete the process again.

Thanks in advance
