Some of Plus Technologies‘ customers may be looking at software solutions designed to eliminate print servers and simplify queue management for simplicity let’s call this “eliminate print server software” or EPSW for short. If you are looking at such software it may be useful to note that there are differences between that kind of solution and OM Plus.
Manage the Print Queue vs Manage the Print Queue and the Print Job EPSW software is focused on managing the print queue. It will not manage the print job itself. To manage the print job they rely on the native operating system print spooler which have major limitations. The elimination of print servers means direct IP print with no print servers to handle failures, statistics, etc. EPSW will usually also require installation on every user workstation.
