Advanced Print Job Routing

  1. 1. Advanced Print Job Routing Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  2. 2. Why Upgrade your Print Spooler? The main advantage of using a third-party print spooling software is the control users gain over the entire printing system. Without spooling software, there is no:  print failover  load balancing  audit trail  queue management of devices  etc. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  3. 3. The Advantages of Print Routing A print spooler overcomes all these issues and more by using print routing. By using different protocols, the print spooling software can provide real time print job routing to streamline and enhance print-related business processes.

  5. 5. How Does Print Routing Work? OM Plus provides dynamic delivery actions to be invoked based on triggers found in the document prior to the spooling process. Based on trigger matches, user defined delivery options are executed such as:  Dynamically adding text to the document  Invoking a form  Changing destinations or number of copies  Scheduling the job  Notifying a user  Re-routing the job  etc. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  6. 6. Print Routing and Print Devices This means OM Plus can be set up to route documents based on the characteristics of the print job or of the status of the print device. Common characteristics include:  Printer Health  Large Jobs  Color  Failover  And more!

  7. 7. Routing for Printer Health Prior to delivering the print job to the printer OM Plus can perform a device “health check.” If the device/printer is not ready to print, the job can be re-directed to a backup device notifying the user and help desk with device error information.

  8. 8. Routing for Large Jobs Some jobs are too large to be printed on standard laser printers. Based on a user defined parameter OM Plus can determine if jobs exceed the specified jobs size, then re-route them to a higher speed device and notify the user.

  9. 9. Routing for Color Users can set parameters within OM Plus to find print jobs that need not be printed in color. These jobs can be re-routed to mono devices. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  10. 10. Routing for Failover OM Plus carries out bi-directional communications with printers to determine on a page by page basis the status of print job and automatically failover. Should a job fail, OM Plus knows which page it failed on and can:  re-route the remaining pages (or the whole job) to a backup device  notify the user  send an alert to the help desk with printer SNMP status Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
