Delivering Printed Documents Still Matters

Delivering Printed Documents Still Matters

document management, Delivering Printed Documents Still Matters, OM Plus, Delivery Manager, Plus Technologies

Experts have been predicting the demise of printed documents for decades. We were supposed to be “paperless” by now.

While some printing processes lend themselves to electronic alternatives there are still many important business/organization processes that depend on the paper document.

Consider the documents needed for transporting goods such as bills of lading, manifests, labels, etc. Without these, products cannot be shipped from manufacturers, warehouses, rail, etc.

In addition, consider the healthcare environment where printed documents are needed to provide quality patient care. Consider documents required for compliance and safety.

Plus Technologies Customization

Plus Technologies Customizationplus tech, Plus Technologies Customization, OM Plus

Many organizations that need output management software (OMS) have unique requirements or unique technical infrastructures. As a result, many of them need a “customized’ version of our OMS product, OM Plus.

While the standard version of OM Plus might provide 90+% of the function or interconnectivity the customer needs, in some cases the customer needs something a little extra or different. Plus Technologies shines when this situation occurs.

We have created a development process and a product architecture that allows us to respond to custom requests quickly. Customers do not need to wait until the next ‘planned/scheduled” release to see their features added to the product. We have the resources, experience and product design to add custom features immediately – sometimes in days.

This ability to respond quickly to the special needs of our customers sets us apart from competition.

OM Plus Customer adds Feature to Existing License

OM Plus Customer adds Feature to Existing License, Plus Technologies, CDP

OM Plus Customer adds Context Delivery Feature to Existing License

A large manufacturing customer currently using OM Plus advanced print software is adding “Context Delivery Plus (CDP)” to its existing licenses.

Context Delivery Plus (CDP) adds capabilities to the OM Plus print spooling system based on triggers found inside the print job itself. CDP can find triggers such as user, device, title, application, keywords and others.

Once the triggers are found a unique set of rules can be applied to the print jobs such as adding copies, changing destinations, managing color, tray options and more.

In this case CDP is being used to print to multiple printers automatically using the OM Plus raw TCP/IP (port 9100) ingestion method from their output source without the need to define new ports or processes with their system. This provides the customer more capacity, including the ability to add production/shipping lines as needed.

Many more people are working from home now. This trend may continue for the foreseeable future.

Printing documents created on corporate systems on home printers can have access, formatting, security, and other technical issues. Some of these issues include:

  •  Corporate applications or networks do not know about or connect to print devices at home.
  • Many documents contain controlled, private, confidential, or protected information (PI) that should not be viewed or shared outside the enterprise.
    • However, they may now need to be used by workers from home.
  • There is no remote access to the protected enterprise documents (and maybe all enterprise documents).
  • Printing docs created at the home office on printers back at the corporate facilities can present challenges also.

Plus Technologies has technical solutions that can help with this.
