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.
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. Specifically, this new video is available on Plus Technologies’ website, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stxinHvxkaA . Additionally, this video and others are available on Plus Technologies’ YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/PlusTechnologies.

The United States Joint Commission on Taxation (JCT) has recently purchased OM Plus Fleet Manager (FM). OM Plus Fleet Manager (OM Plus FM) is a comprehensive printer fleet management software tool. FM helps organizations or Managed Print Services providers manage print and multi-function/copy fleets. Plus Technologies‘ printer fleet management software gathers near real time data such as page counts, color and mono pages, copies, scans, faxes, errors, device health, toner levels, and more. FM parses the data, analyzes it, notifies users, and generates reports. OM Plus FM can highlight device usage, device up-time, automate consumables ordering/replenishment, and alert users on technical issues. Data can be used to optimize printer fleets. OM Plus FM can be deployed as a hosted solution or as an on-site solution.
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.
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.
Plus Technologies OM Plus output management software is currently being featured in multiple booths at the HIMSS Conference in Vegas.
OM Plus Delivery Manager print software has been integrated with Epic software for over ten years. Plus Technologies has a significant user base of OM Plus customers that run the integrated OM Plus – Epic solution. Now Epic is moving to a new release of their software called Epic 2018 .
Epic 2018 changes the way it interacts with third party Output Management Software (OMS) products like OM Plus. The rules regarding the location of OMS components within Epic 2018 has changed requiring an architectural changes within OM Plus. In addition, Epic has introduced a new API. As a result, Plus Technologies has had to write a new OM Plus interface to work with the Epic API. Plus Technologies is currently working together to test and certify this new API interface.
Two large healthcare organizations who are using OM Plus for their output management needs have increased their licensing sizes for OM Plus. These healthcare organizations includes a 733-bed and a 300-bed critical access hospital, a multi-specialty physician practice, rehabilitation services and home-based services.
Both these healthcare systems are Epic users and they use OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) which is optimized for Epic environments. OM Plus DM greatly reduces complexity of Epic output, increases print reliability and scalability. Additionally, in the My-Print-Delivery (MPD) environment Plus Technologies uses a certified Imprivata authentication solution. OM Plus continues to have success in the healthcare market and is a leading Output Management Solution solution there.

An American regional chain of fast food restaurants with revenue of $600m and locations primarily in the American Southwest and Pacific coast has increased the number of printers/destinations under their OM Plus license. This company uses OM Plus in their corporate offices to improve printing fidelity of key business documents, increase scalability of their Windows spooling system, and provide error recovery tools to reduce workload on their helpdesk. This long time OM Plus customer was founded in Baldwin Park, California and is currently headquartered in Irvine, California. They have had success and are expanding outside Southern California into the rest of California, as well as into Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and Oregon. This success in their business and the expansion has lead to a need for an upgrade to their OM Plus license.
