This powerful Bundle includes Switch 11 Core Engine, the Configurator Module, the Metadata Module, the SwitchClient Module and the Database Module plus 1-Year maintenance and support coverage on all products. Using Switch in tandem with the Metadata and Database Modules allows you to: use metadata within your job files; access information in external job ticket formats from virtually any MIS system and generate queries to any SQL-compatible database to intelligently route and process your production files.
Switch Core Engine:
Switch Core Engine enables powerful file management including receiving, sorting, routing and tracking of files. Every company is confronted with these kinds of tasks on a daily basis. Automation gives your customers the ability to reduce errors, standardise procedures and reduce costs. The Switch Core Engine also includes powerful split and merge functionality for PDF files. Switch enables users to utilise information already available within their files to make complex routing decisions based on file naming, the number of pages or colours used in the file, page orientation and dimensions, etc.
This module enables integration, control and automation of many popular third party applications in the creative, prepress and production sectors. The Configurator Module automates Adobe Acrobat Distiller, Adobe Creative Suite, Enfocus PitStop Server, and many other popular applications and allows users to easily build solutions for preflight, imposition, colour management and many more.
The Database module for Switch automates the communication between a database application and Switch. The Database Module makes it possible for Switch to instantly access existing ODBC data sources to expedite automated processing and prevent labour-intensive re-keying of job information into multiple systems. The Database Module connects using system DSN resources and honors all database rights and privileges.
Much like the Database Module, this module enhances workflow intelligence by using existing information stored in XML or JDF job tickets or embedded within files as XMP data. The Metadata Module also includes tools to export metadata and convert XML information, preflight logs and reports into other XML formats, HTML or human-readable information. By repurposing embedded or job ticket information, Switch enables users to more effectively utilise previous investments and personalise their service to customers.
The SwitchClient module enables the use of SwitchClient, a separate desktop application that enables a company's workgroup as well as external clients to interface with their workflows. SwitchClient works in the background and notifies a user only if a job needs their attention. SwitchClient displays thumbnails of the job to make it easy for the user to identify a job, and provides additional information (such as the number of pages in a PDF file) for each job displayed
