Switchboard (note the lowercase "b") functions as an internal App Store for Apple employees only. The icon looks similar to the App Store's but has an "S" instead of an "A" and is green instead of blue. Inside there are a variety of applications, some for retail store use, some for service centers, some for corporate employees. Those one gets access to vary depending upon one's AppleConnect permissions.
