  • 6. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2013 Capabilities As a result of our extensive experience in healthcare, Plus Technologies has created print management software to suit the specific needs of this industry and offers numerous solutions including:  EMR Print Queue Management - Plus Technologies provides queue management and print spooling solutions that have been optimized for Cerner. Our OM Plus Delivery Manager is also used to streamline ERP/Accounting Application software printing that is often used in healthcare thereby providing a single, unified print sub-system for the entire organization. This streamlines operations and saves cost.  Tamper Resistant Rx Printing - Printing prescriptions today often involves using a specialized printer and expensive custom, pre-printed forms. Plus Technologies, in conjunction with a major printer vendor, offers a solution to replace this expensive implementation with software that uses pantograph and micro-print technologies to print tamper resistant prescriptions on standard cut-sheet printers. The cost-savings from this solution are significant.

Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2013 Capabilities  My Print Delivery – My Print Delivery (MPD) is a pull-printing solution that provides print mobility, reduces pages printed, and increases confidentiality compliance. Users’ documents are held in the OM Plus MPD system until the user is at the printer itself. The user then identifies themselves while at the printer (numerous ways to identify are supported), the user is authenticated, and documents are directed to the device.  iPad and Phone Print - iPads and smartphones are commonly used in healthcare. The ability to print from these devices can be important. Plus Technologies offers print solutions for these devices utilizing the MPD product described above. In this way, the printers can move with the healthcare worker.

OM Plus iSat provides for a safe, low cost, internet based method of print. OM Plus iSat is a “pull based” system that requires no set up or maintenance at the remote location. Just plug it in and go. OM Plus iSat is self installing at the remote locations and will initiate contact with an OM Plus Delivery Manager at the central location to pull documents down to the remote location for printing.  Print Spooling - OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) is market-leading print spooler software designed to increase print system reliability, provide troubleshooting tools, and add important print features such as print confirmation (to the tray), system load balancing, automated fail-over, error notification, unified view of all jobs, document archiving, and much more.

OM Plus SM is able to capture device-based metrics such as print counts, copy counts, color pages, mono pages. In addition, OM Plus SM is able to capture user print metrics including user print totals, name of jobs printed, when printed, and so on. OM Plus SM is a very useful tool for the organization that wants to promote print efficiency.  Centralized Toner Management - Managing toner is often a decentralized and un-managed event. This leads to inefficiencies and high cost. OM Plus Fleet Manager (FM) monitors networked print devices and can determine the ideal time for toner re-order and swap.
