Happy Fourth of July from Plus Technologies

Happy Fourth of July from Plus Technologies

With the Fourth of July this upcoming Saturday we take time to reflect. This year has been tough for many individuals, families, businesses, and the country. Covid-19 has greatly impacted our country, and here at Plus Technologies we hope all of us continue to be safe practice social distancing.

When the Declaration of Independence was signed 240 years ago, 56 patriots pledged their lives and their honor to defend our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Their legacy lives on today through generations of Americans who have made that same pledge to boldly stand up against tyranny, oppression, and persecution.
Those who serve in our armed forces, and their families, have given so much to defend the freedom we often take for granted. Today, as we celebrate our nation’s birth, let us honor their service and strive to be worthy of their tremendous sacrifices.

In addition, we would like to wish all our customers, employees, partners, and friends a happy Fourth of July. We appreciate all that you do to help us succeed in the output management sw, managed print, tamper resistant print, pull printing, and statistics markets.

OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) Software

OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) Software, MPD, pull-print, OM Plus, Delivery Manager, DM, Output Management, Plus TechnologiesOM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) Software

OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) pull-print software is Plus Technologies solution for pull printing. This pull-print solution is also know by other names. Names such as: print release, pull-print, follow-me, or find-me printing. The idea behind the concept is to improve printing efficiencies by holding user documents in the print system until the user releases the document while physically at the printer or multifunction device itself. There are many benefits for implementing OM Plus MPD such as: saving pages printed, reducing toner consumption and cost, and increasing document security.

Pull-print works by allowing the user to print documents through their usual print experience. Thus there is no change to the user. The document is routed to OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) where the job is held in OM Plus. When the user is ready to print they go to the device of their choice, swipe their card, pass authentication, and then MPD routes the job to the printer. This process ensures no print jobs/documents are left unattended.

SAP Print Spooling Software

Many organizations print business critical documents such as invoices, labels, pick tickets, bills of lading, compliance documents, etc from their SAP ERP system. Problems with the printing of these documents will affect important business processes. Specifically, a missed label, pick ticket, or bill of lading can delay a shipment and cause a missed deadline.

OM Plus Delivery Manager is an SAP BC-XOM certified print spooler with advanced, intelligent, print spooling software designed to seamlessly complement SAP ERP output. For SAP print spooling, OM Plus ingests and manages the delivery of output requests from one or more SAP and non-SAP systems.

OM Plus increases reliability and scalability; it manages delivery of output to printers and bi-directionally communicates with the device to confirm print occurs properly. In the case of print failure automated actions can occur such as fail-over and notification. OM Plus can report the printer status of each job back to the SAP system so SAP users can view the status from their SAP UI.

OM Plus Printer Load Balancing

OM Plus Printer Load Balancing

Printer load balancing, or printing across multiple printers can significantly improve overall document output velocity. Another name for printer load balancing is printer pooling. In busy printing environments several jobs may be sent to the printer in a short period of time. However, when this happens the documents become stacked up and have to wait their turn before printing. With Printer Load Balancing, documents do not wait for prior jobs to print. Documents are routed to available printers and print right away.

OM Plus printer load balancing allows a user to define a group of printers called a “printer class”. Printer load balancing is accomplished by OM Plus Print Spooling distributing the documents to all the devices within the class. Using bi-directional communications OM Plus can detect the status of printers. If the printer is busy OM will direct waiting jobs to the next available print device.

National Passenger Rail Service Rolls Out OM Plus Software, Plus Technologies, OM Plus, DM, Delivery Manager, railroad

National Passenger Rail Service Rolls Out OM Plus Software

Plus Technologies has licensed OM Plus Output Management Software to a national rail transport service (Amtrak). This company has ordered OM Plus Output Management software to help streamline its print operations.

Specifically OM Plus is being used in the AWS cloud to route, transform, and print ‘train bulletin” documents that are created on a remote system and emailed via a popular email SaaS vendor’s cloud to ensure the documents are reliably delivered to printers and printed in the correct print format. Due to OM Plus’ extensive print functionality changes were not needed to the mainframe software saving time and money.

Included with this OM Plus print management solution is the optional Context Delivery Plus (CDP) module that is able to examine document metadata such as title, source, content, destination, etc and based on customer defined parameters invoke specific value-added functions such as format transformations as needed.

The OM Plus solution is also integrated with PrinterLogic’s Printer Installer product to help reduce system administration and overhead.
