OM Plus print delivery software, communicates bi-directionally with printers and multifunction devices to confirm that printing took place and that documents are available in the tray. If a print failure occurs OM Plus can notify the help desk, provide elegant recovery tools and can automatically failover to backup device to avoid interruption to the document printing and related business processes.

Medical Transcription Service Orders OM Plus

Medical Transcription Service Orders OM Plus

Medical Transcription Service Orders OM Plus, Plus Technologies, Output ManagementPlus Technologies has received an order for OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) (print spooler) from a large medical transcription service organization. This customer is a development organization and is writing a custom cloud based (SaaS) application for one of their customers. The host based cloud application uses the Windows spooler to deliver print output to printers however, there are some limitations in Windows that this customer would like to overcome. However, the Windows spooling system does not scale well and system failures can occur. In addition, when print jobs are lost by Windows they do not have visibility onto the cause of the problem. In Windows there is no tracking capability, a lack of user interface to manage jobs for administrators, and there is no print confirmation to the printer tray or auto failover and notification.

OM Plus API will be used as the primary interface between the products and the OM Plus solution will also transform documents to printer ready PostScript format. OM Plus will manage the routing of the jobs to over 200 printers and verify print occurred successfully and put into the output tray. If print is not successful, OM Plus provides the ability to check on printer for errors. All of this can be reported back to the user via the custom build application.

US Court System Licenses Print Software from Plus Technologies

The Administrative Office for US Court System has recently acquired Plus Technologies OM Plus print software. The Administrative Office is responsible for providing the technology and services required by the US Justice Department. The Justice Department had a need for an automated solution for fax delivery, and they were experiencing Windows print spooling crashes, and having print reliability issues.

This customer found OM Plus via a web search and contacted Plus Technologies to see if we could meet their stringent requirements. These requirements included the need for some customization of the base OM Plus product. A major point of differentiation for Plus Technologies is our willingness to take on custom requests and our ability to develop solutions quickly. We worked with US Courts to meet their requirements and develop a solution that works for them. US Courts was able to thoroughly test the solution on house before committing to purchase.
