Dayton, OH (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Plus Technologies is pleased to announce several updates to their Secure Print Release (SPR) software solution. The Plus Technologies SPR software is intended to be used by corporate and institutional customers for enhancing user print mobility, print security, and reducing overall print volume and cost. The Plus Technologies SPR solution is based on its market-leading OM Plus Delivery Manager print software and now offers numerous ways to release print jobs.
In a typical print environment, users print to a printer that is predefined to their system. This printer is usually located in or near their office. However, when users are mobile they may not be close a “predefined” printer. In this situation, printing can be very difficult. Secure Print Release software resolves this problem as print jobs are held centrally, then delivered it to any printer based on where the user is. This increases print mobility.
Business environments have ever increasing regulations for privacy and security. One print related issue in this regard is the notion of leaving sensitive materials in a printer tray where non-authorized users may see it. This applies to medical records, financial documents, personal data, and corporate confidential documents. With Plus Technologies SPR, the print job is only released when the user is at the device. This minimizes the opportunity for unauthorized viewing of printed documents.
With Plus Technologies’ Secure Print Release solution, users can continue to print the way they always have. No changes are required at the user workstation. Plus Technologies works completely in the background, seamlessly, with no impact on the end user. Plus Technologies’ Secure Print Release offers a variety of methods for users to release their print jobs:
-- Smartphone - Tablet - Kindle: Users can select the OM Plus SPR App.
-- Printer/MFD: Users can select the OM Plus SPR App embedded on selected printers/MFD’s.
-- Card Swipe: By swiping their card on specific badge readers for direct SPR printing.
-- Release Workstation: Users can use OM Plus SPR feature on dedicated release workstations.
-- CAC: Print release option that meets the strict requirements of the Department of Defense.
-- Barcode: Users can scan a barcode associated with the printer to enable the release of print jobs.
Through the use of Smartphone, Printer Embedded, Kindle, or Release Workstation methods, OM Plus authenticates the user’s credentials (Active Directory, LDAP), retrieves the user’s print jobs and shows them to the user. Users are then able to view and select a list of their print jobs and release them to the printer. SPR is easy, fast and secure.
Documents can be sent and delivered to any device defined to the OM Plus system, providing a significant mobility factor. Additionally, print jobs can be redirected to other devices in case there is a problem with the initial target device. Jobs are held in the SPR System for a user defined period of time so they can be presented at other devices as well.
