  3. 3. Printing Challenges in Logistics In many cases documents have to be combined or re-ordered for inclusion in a shipment.  Documents should not be printed twice or missed. The ability to restart print jobs at a specific page is very important as well. Maximizing throughput load by balancing jobs across multiple devices is an important capability. Automated fail-over upon print failure also helps maintain uptime on the line.

  5. 5. The Main Concerns in Logistics Printing Logistics services are often managed by automated and integrated order processing and inventory control systems. Orders are processed upon receipt, and they ship within 24 hours.  In other words, logistic systems need to be reliable to fulfill the promise of fast, accurate shipping of your products to anywhere in the world. When fulfilling customer orders, warehouse documents such as labels, pick tickets, invoices, etc need to be printed on a printer at the end of the logistic process, in real time. As print volume increases, the single printer model can no longer keep up with the volume of printing, which impacts customer satisfaction, revenue, and profit.

  6. 6. The OM Plus Solution Utilizing OM Plus, you can automatically split the print jobs and load balance them across multiple printers without requiring any changes to the underlying application  You can also ensure that all documents related to a specific customer order stay together in a "bundle" so related documents are not split across multiple printers. Print fail-over can ensure no orders are missed due to down printers, and help desk personnel are immediately notified of problems to increase the velocity of problem remediation.
