Print Management Solution for Retail Shipping

Print Management Solution for Retail Shipping

A supplier to retail stores across the US was experiencing print issues when trying to perform batch printing of labels. As shipment volume grew the print function required for labels and other shipping-related documents was falling behind causing shipments to be held up. Printers would occasionally fail, stopping the process entirely also causing missed deadlines and requiring manual intervention/labor to fix the problems.

As a result, the retailer searched for a print management solution to help improve the situation. The customer acquired OM Plus print management software to provide Load Balancing across multiple printers. This print management software solution from Plus Technologies increases volume and detects print failure. Then automatically invokes failover to a backup device to keep the line moving and manages the delivery of certain documents to specific trays to minimize manual intervention.

OMS in the SAP Print Environment

OMS in the SAP Print Environment

We are frequently contacted by customers facing print/output workflow limitations with their SAP system. So we thought we would write a high level summary of the SAP print situation. While the base SAP spooling process can provide basic delivery to print devices it has severe limitations if the need is for load balancing, automated fail-over, format transformations, label print management, confirmed delivery, error notification, pull print, print statistics and other advanced functions.

The SAP spool system is responsible for the output of all forms and documents. SAP print jobs data are first temporarily stored (“spooled”), and usually when de-spooled into an output request, transferred to a “host spool system” or the printer itself. Host systems could be remote or local, Windows, Unix, Linux, or other operating systems. Users would not need to arrange further processing in the host spool system usually, and can see the status of print jobs in their SAP UI, but in this case status means jobs sent to the native host spool system – not the actual printed status as from the printer itself. This process works for basic print functions and users can see the status of print jobs in their SAP UI. In this case status means jobs sent to the native Windows or Linux system – not the actual printed status as from the printer itself.

Why Organizations Want an Enterprise Print Management Solution

Managing Enterprise printing is a big problem for large organizations. Analysts say that 20-60 percent of helpdesk calls are printer related and 30 percent of business process failures are related to print issues. The reason for these staggering statistics is that managing Enterprise printing is a complex process. It involves multiple data streams, workflows, servers, operating systems, data transformations and complex networks supporting many printers and workstations at multiple locations. With the disparate native utilities that “out-of- the-box” applications rely upon, this type of environment provides many challenges for organizations.
