Default files to open with new iWork

We have both iWork '09 as well as the latest iWork suite. What is the best way to change the default .pages, .numbers, .keynote file extensions to open in the new iWork programs (Pages 5.2, Numbers 3.2, Keynote 6.2)? We have seen the recommendations of using duti, but the bundle identifiers are the same.

For instance:
Pages '09 bundle identifier: com.apple.iWork.Pages
Pages 5.2 bundle identifier: com.apple.iWork.Pages

We obviously would like to push this out for our users rather than then going to Get Info and changing it themselves.

Give DUTI a look.

The issue is that DUTI works by bundle identifier. With the bundle identifier for both the old versions of the programs and the new ones being the same, I have heard this won't work. Have you tried it with success?
