Plus Technologies Selected by Discovery Channel for “Pull Printing” Solution3 Jan, 2013
Plus Technologies OM Plus “Delivery Manager” (DM) print spooling software was selected for their standardize print software by Discovery Channel. OM Plus was selected to replace an incumbent ‘pull printing’ solution as it had more features, is easy to use and is very cost effective. “Pull Printing” is based on the idea of a print spooler holding users’ print jobs until the user physically “releases’ the jobs at the printer itself.
In this environment users would release their held print jobs by using a swipe card to identify themselves at the printer. OM Plus authorizes the user based on their Active Directory credentials. In this environment OM Plus had to support a fleet with devices from several printer manufacturers.
The business case for this implementation is based on reducing the number of devices in the printer fleet, eliminating the use of personal printers, and reducing print waste. In addition, workers are able to retrieve their printing jobs from any authorized printer providing enhanced worker mobility.
