New Versions of OM Plus Delivery Manager and My-Print-Delivery

New Versions of OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) and My-Print-Delivery (MPD), OM Plus, Plus Technologies, Output Management, MPD, DM

New Versions of OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) and My-Print-Delivery (MPD)

New versions of OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) and My-Print-Delivery (MPD) print software are in development and are coming soon. Plus Technologies’ software engineers are nearly finished significant enhancements to Delivery Manager (DM) and My-Print-Delivery (MPD).

Delivery Manager is a market leading output management software solution that routes print jobs from the source system all the way to the printer tray and adds numerous value add features along the way. Features such as load balancing, automated failover, intelligent/context based routing, print confirmation, error notification, statistics and more.

My-Print-Delivery is Plus Technologies’ pull-print (sometimes called print release) solution. MPD allows end user print jobs to be held by the MPD system. MPD then routes the jobs to the printer once the user is identified and authenticated. A major benefit of MPD is the integration with back-end systems like EMR’s (eg Epic, Cerner), ERP’s (SAP, Oracle),  WMS, and Single Sign-on (eg Improvata)  systems for the delivery of print jobs created by those systems.

These new releases are expected to be completed  in the next month and will provide significant enhancements in the following areas.

  • DM installation improvements
  • MPD configuration simplification
  • Improved card reader integration
  • Enhanced security with support for TLS 1.2
  • Adding more print statistics
  • MPD application for Ricoh
  • Changes to support Lexmark esf application changes

Pull-Print – Server vs Workstation Based Architecture

Pull-Print - Server vs Workstation Based Architecture, OM Plus, My-Print-Delivery, MPD, Output Management, Plus TechnologiesPull-Print – Server vs Workstation Based Architecture

There are many pull-print solutions (also called print release) in the marketplace. The vendors of these solutions claim very similar capabilities but upon closer inspection there are critical differences. As a prospective buyer of pull-print one significant difference to explore is the architecture of the solution. Does the solution require a software install on every end user workstation – or is the solution server based.

Significant Advantages to MPD

We think there are significant advantages to having a server based pull-print solution like OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD). Server based solutions like MPD typically have better integrations with key ERP’s (like SAP), EMR’s (like Epic), Single Sign-on Apps (like Imprivata). Without the integrations to back end systems like these it can be difficult for workstation based pull print systems to get the end user name or ID’s needed to release documents at the printer.

Pull-Print with My-Print-Delivery (MPD)

Pull-Print with OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD), OM Plus, My-Print-Delivery, MPD, Output Management, Plus TechnologiesPull-Print with OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD)

OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) pull-print software is Plus Technologies solution for pull printing. This pull-print solution is also known 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.

My-Print-Delivery (MPD) is a superior solution because of its integrations. These integrations allow the user name data to be passed through seamlessly from EMR’s such Epic, ERP’s such as SAP, Oracle and others and Single Sign-n Solutions such as Imprivata.

In addition, MPD does not require any installation on end user workstations like other systems. This makes MPD simpler and easier to install and maintain.

Plus Technologies and Lexmark Awarded Large Rx Printing Contract

OMPlus TRP, Plus Technologies and Lexmark Awarded Large Rx Printing Contract, TRP, Tamper, Resistant, Print, Output Management, Plus Technologies, OM Plus, RxPlus Technologies and Lexmark Awarded Large Rx Printing Contract

Plus Technologies’ partner Lexmark has won a Managed Print Services (MPS) contract at a large South Carolina healthcare organization. A key requirement of the contract is the provisioning of tamper resistant print software for prescription (Rx) printing on 1,250 plain paper printers. By using plain paper instead of pre-printed forms the customer is able to save a significant amount of cost while retaining the security features required for Rx.

Plus Technologies will be providing the tamper resistant software required for this project with its OM Plus TRP system. The Plus Technologies’ software beat out a competitive solution from Troy as the print quality of the Plus Technologies’ software on the Lexmark devices was superior.

In this environment, the OM Plus software ingests output from the customer’s Epic EMR system, parses it, applies the tamper resistant pantograph and micro-print features and delivers the finished print job to the appropriate printers. OM Plus also converses bi-directionally with the printers to confirm the print occurred properly and the documents are in the output tray.

By teaming up in this project, Lexmark and Plus Technologies were able to differentiate the solution from competition. Thus securing the bid.

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Thanksgiving, Thanks, Giving Thanks, Plus Technologies

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was this past week and as the Nation takes the day off we acknowledge what we are thankful for. As a company Plus Technologies is thankful for all our hard working employees. In addition, Plus Technologies is very thankful for our customers and partners. A special thank you goes out to our service members who could not make it home for the holiday.

In 1789 George Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving a public holiday in the United States. For the next 74 years, Thanksgiving was celebrated by individual colonies and states. In 1863 Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving into a federal holiday. During the Civil War Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”
Since 1863 Thanksgiving has been celebrated on the last Thursday in November. In 1621, the “First Thanksgiving” took place when the Plymouth Colonists and the Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest.
