Transcontinental Inc.: Automating the Process
Thus, Switch's ability to work with Group Logic MassTransit is a major benefit. Transcontinental uses MassTransit to enable customers to securely upload files into its system, and then uses PowerSwitch to route the files to the appropriate flow according to the supplied metadata. "We can point files from a browser or via internal IP directly to specific flows with specific task sets, and use sophisticated file routing to pull files out of Prinergy and put them back in," he points out.
Not surprisingly, Transcontinental has pushed Switch—and its partner applications—to the breaking point. But, by working with the Enfocus technical support team, the ISC has been able to troubleshoot workflows, identify problems and solutions, and get the flows to perform according to expectation.
Switch, now in version 08, is also benefiting from maturity and improved stability. By carefully testing the flows to determine how much volume a particular task can handle, Transcontinental has been able to safely deploy selected PowerSwitch flows into live production. "Now that we have invested the time to prove the concept and conduct tests, it's time to expand its use strategically." PI
