Default Template Switching RT Basic Q

What exactly happens at the end of template switching RT, and why is it advantageous? Lets assume we are using a MMLV reverse transcriptase to add the ccc at the end of the fragment. What happens next? I could not find a clear explanation online.

An DNA oligo with a rGrGrG 3'-end ((the template switching oligo) will anneal to the CCC overhang and the RT will continue to work on this newly added template. This allows you to add a defined (PCR-amplify-able) sequence to the 5'-end of your cDNA.
