Output Management Systems: Providing Digital Information for a Socially Distanced Workforce

by Catherine O'Toole

In our dynamic business climate, the software industry is experiencing a massive shift in its strategic development and go-to-market model. The emphasis on traditional feature-functionality enhancement is being rapidly replaced to fulfill the requirements for a remote, socially distanced workforce. Therefore, user- and community-centric models are what many companies are adopting to drive their digital transformation.

As an example, in the article “COVID-19 and the dawn of remote collaboration“, Softweb Solutions points out that the transition to a digital workplace model is needed to stay connected across industries like manufacturing, transportation/logistics, healthcare, energy, the public sector, and others.

With fewer and fewer in-office meetings, collaboration has become a much greater challenge. Businesses must simplify and streamline critical processes across lines-of-business, workgroups, and geographies.

One key requirement for remote workforce collaboration: readily available information. Output management systems (OMS) achieves this and provides users the tools needed for the collection, conversion, and distribution of digital information.

Filling the White Space

Whether you’re a technology provider offering document management solutions, or a corporate IT manager responsible for document-related systems, it’s a good bet that you’ve had challenges with getting digital information to the right people at the right time.

Case in point: users who do their work in an enterprise software solution (e.g., SAP, Oracle, IBM, Siemens) often find it difficult or even tedious to print or digitally distribute information using their platform application.


Output management systems (OMS) typically operate as a background processing application; their primary function is to make it easier for users and managers to assemble or collect documents and distribute them in a readily usable format like PDF or PDF-A. And, since OMS does not store data, it can operate alongside other document-centric software solutions without conflict.

Companies that proactively innovate and execute successfully realize that distributing digital information quickly and efficiently to their remote workforce is a business imperative. And for large manufacturing corporations, professional services companies, and government contractors alike, the need to streamline the gathering, converting, and distributing of digital documents has never been more crucial.

Solution providers can help their customers get more out of their ERP, PLM, and document management systems by integrating an output management system into the user’s key work processes.
