Kroger Extends Licensing of OM Plus Print Software
Kroger has recently increased licensing of its OM Plus print spooling software. Kroger uses OM Plus in its cold food warehouses to manage a custom label printing application. Plus Technologies has developed this custom printing application that makes ‘wrap-around’ labels for Kroger so that fork-lift drivers can see the labels on two sides of the palettes. This is very helpful when multiple palettes are stacked side-by-side and labels are obscured.
OM Plus also provides an enhanced workflow for the documents created in Kroger’s core business system. Based on user defined criteria, OM Plus identifies the documents that require the special wrap-around label solution. OM Plus then separates them from the other documents, and submits them to the wrap-around label workflow process. This special workflow includes creation of the “special” label, delivery to the printers, print confirmation, load balancing, and automated fail-over. This is done to maximize productivity.
