Whirlpool uses OM Plus Print Spooler to Improve Efficiency on Production Line16 Jan, 2013
Whirlpool, a leading manufacturer of appliances, is utilizing Plus Technologies’ OM Plus print spooling software to automate the printing on the production lines in several cities across the U.S. Whirlpool uses OM Plus to confirm that printing of pack lists, shipping documents,a nd related documents print properly. Using OM Plus’ bi-directional communications feature, Whirlpool can confirm that printing actually occurred and that the documents are in the tray. In the case of a printer failure an error notification email is sent to the support staff and print jobs are automatically re-routed to a back-up printer.
The OM Plus project has proven to be a great success at Whirlpool. We recently received a call from Whirlpool where they provided the following quote.
“Our lines need to keep running.
Print failures cause interruptions
and missed objectives. We rely on
OM Plus’ reliability and automated
fail-over to ensure the line keeps moving.
It has been great for us.” -Whirlpool
