What is secure print release service?

The term is sometimes called “pull printing.”  With secure print release, print jobs will be held until the user is ready to print. The user can authenticate themselves either at the printer, using embedded software on the printer or through an external device (e.g. a smartcard). After authentication, the user will be presented with a list of available print jobs. The user can pick and choose which jobs they wish to print at any given time.

OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD) software is a solution from Plus Technologies for “pull printing.” There are many benefits for implementing OM Plus MPD.

  • Confidentiality and Compliance: The risk of printed documents left in the output bin is minimized as the users will be directly at the device.
  • Mobility: Users can move from one location to another and still print without having the need to log onto a computer.
  • Cost:  MPD can reduce print volumes by 15%-20% lower usage of expensive toner.
  • Green: Less paper and less toner is consumed.
  • Security:  Users are authenticated and only see their jobs.

With OM Plus MPD, users print the way they always have and there is no change to the user print experience. OM Plus MPD offers many ways to release print jobs.

  • Smartphone: Users can select the OM Plus MPD App on their cell phone.
  • Printer/MFD: Users can select the OM Plus MPD App embedded on selected printers/MFD’s.
  • Card Swipe: By swiping their card on specific badge readers for direct MPD printing.
  • Release Workstation: Users can use OM Plus MPD feature on dedicated release workstations.
