Pull-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.
