Quote: 
"Switch pulls everything together. Although we have multiple publishing and consumption methods, there is now a defined, centralized workflow for managing, processing and distributing files, as well as updating and interacting with several databases. We needed a solution that was as 'open source' as possible to allow full XML automation as well as integration of third party applications and configurators. Switch was the ideal solution to meet those requirements."
