Large Healthcare Organization Purchases Plus Technologies’ Rx Solution

A large healthcare organization, located in the upper midwest, has recently purchased OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) print spooling software. Additionally they purchased Tamper Resistant Print (TRP) for prescription printing on plain paper. This $4B healthcare organization has approximately 26,000 employees, 13 hospitals, and 3,100 beds. This customer will be using the Plus Technologies print software system to seamlessly ingest print jobs from its Cerner EMR host. Furthermore, it will automatically separate the Rx print jobs from the document stream and route them to the designated Rx printers. Then the jobs are re-formatted and merged with the Rx overlays to prevent unauthorized copying before being printed. This way expensive pre-printed Rx forms can be replaced with inexpensive plain paper saving the customer significant cost. In addition to saving on forms costs the customer will streamline operations and improve printing security. The sale to this customer was achieved in conjunction with Plus Technologies’ long time partner Lexmark International. Plus Technologies is a major OMS vendor in the healthcare market with several dozen healthcare customers. Additionally, OM Plus is currently managing “many hundreds-of-thousands” of devices in this vertical.

New Version of Delivery Manager Speeds Up Performance

A recent new version of Delivery Manager (DM) will speed up performance for classes.  Classes are a DM concept where multiple printers can be put into groups (Classes). Users then print to the class instead of the printer. DM can load balance printing across all printers in a class to increase overall print speed. The new version of DM increases class size to allow 40 devices from the previous 20. In addition, other performance-enhancing changes have been made to increase throughput.

Also, new versions of Web Client and Thick Client have been released. These new versions improve usability.

Plus Technologies’ SAP Print Management: Improve Print Reliability & Intelligent Job Routing Video

Recently, Plus Technologies has posted a case study video that describes our SAP Print Management solution recently implemented in a large retail environment. This retailer runs SAP as their ERP system and has over 1,000 locations/stores. The OM Plus print software solution helped solve print fidelity issues when printing from the data center to remote store locations. The solution reduced print errors, increased scalability, provided much needed trouble shooting tools, provides enhanced print failover, confirms print, and reported print status back to SAP so SAP users could view actual status from their SAP UI.

My-Print-Delivery (MPD) Update

My-Print-Delivery (MPD) Update

There have been several upgrades to OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) – Plus Technologies’ pull-print product (sometimes called print release). The current release is Version 4.0x and new functions have been added.

Secure Queue Release (SQR)

A new means of releasing print jobs from devices called Secure Queue Release (SQR) has been added to MPD. This is a useful way to release jobs in healthcare where documents are routed to exam rooms and can be released by any authenticated person there.
This new SQR capability is available as part of our MPD moodule of our OM Plus product suite. It enables users to securely tap and release print jobs associated with different virtual print queues, at an enabled printer. The user releasing a job does NOT have to be the one that originally submitted the job. SQR is an embedded application which allows an authenticated MPD user to release print jobs assigned to “virtual queues” for printing on an associated physical printer.
