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.

A large auto supply company chooses OM Plus Delivery Manager for SAP printing

A large auto supply company that services customers in over 150 countries has selected OM Plus DM for SAP printing. The company uses a combination of QAD and SAP over multiple server system serving over 500 printers for its ERP solution. Since QAD and SAP R3 rely on the limited native Operating System for printing, they began looking for a solution with greater reliabilty and functionality.

The customer needed a solution that could perform page level restarts, load balancing, pick/pack/ship, intelligent routing, bundling, E-Forms, and tranformations. In addition, the customer wanted to save on administation costs.
