Plus Technologies Streamlines Output Management for Major Railroad

December 7, 2012

Plus Technologies has deployed OM Plus DM and Secure Print Release solutions within a large transportation company to increase efficiency and cost savings.

Dayton, OH (PRWEB) December 06, 2012

Plus Technologies´ OM Plus Delivery Manager print spooler software has been selected by a large Florida based railroad company. The OM Plus print spooler will assist with printing in more than 700 company locations.

The railroad was experiencing huge inefficiencies and waste when printing their work-order packets. A work-order packet is a bundle of documents that is required to be carried on board a train at all times. The packet includes several reports such as a tonnage report, haz-mat report, discrepancy reports and others. These packets could include over one hundred pages of reports and are printed at each of the company´s 700+ locations/stations.

The waste was created because each packet had to be printed multiple times due to last minute changes to the train´s load. Each time something changed in the train, a new packet had to be printed and the old version it replaced was thrown out. This process created a great deal of waste and printing cost related to toner, paper, and printer maintenance.

To resolve this issue, Plus Technologies developed and implemented a custom bundling and print release solution based on their OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) print spooler software. OM Plus DM is a market leading print spooling, job delivery software product. The Plus Technologies solution allowed users to send and update work orders the way they always have, without change. However, in the OM Plus solution, when the order is sent, it is held in an OM Plus print queue instead of immediately printing – eliminating the waste. Once an updated work order is received into the system, the previous version is deleted. Once the final version of the work order is complete, the user is able to print it through the embedded print release interface on the printer. OM Plus was also configured to print and staple two versions of the work orders, one of which for the engineer and one for the conductor.

The custom Plus Technologies solution allowed for significant toner, paper, and overall cost savings. Plus Technologies Output Management Software Suite (OM Plus) provides companies in numerous industries with the same economic and productivity benefits. The OM Plus Software Suite will provide improved reliability in output delivery, reduced document handling requirements, end-to-end business process improvements, IT productivity improvements, and on-line output distribution.
