My Print Delivery User Experience
As described by VMware at the HIMSS Convention:
Print Release for VDI Environments
OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) software is Plus Technologies solution for "pull printing". This type of solution is also called by other names such as print release, pull printing, follow-me, or find-me printing. The idea behind the concept is to improve printing efficiencies by holding user documents in the print system until the user releases the document while physically at the printer or multi-function device itself. There are many benefits for implementing OM Plus MPD:
With OM Plus MPD, users print the way they always have and there is no change to the user print experience. However, rather than the documents going directly to the printer they are held in the OM Plus MPD system. When users want to print their jobs they do it from the printer or multi-function device of their choice. There are multiple ways for the user to release their print jobs:
User credentials are verified by OM Plus MPD (Active Directory, LDAP) making the retrieval process safe and secure. Jobs can be delivered to any device defined to the OM Plus system providing a significant mobility factor. In addition, users can redirect print jobs to other devices should there be a problem with the initial target device. Jobs are held in the OM Plus MPD system for a user defined period of time so they can be retrieved later on at a different device (eg. in case of printer failure).
There are several advantages of OM Plus MPD over competitive offers:
