Authentication first, then printing
Secure & PickUp Printing (also called Pull Printing or Follow Me Printing) is our name for an output method where the printouts are not output directly with the printing process on the selected printer. Instead, these are held back until the user identifies himself at the printer and authorises the output.
Every company that wants to replace their work station printers with central multifunctional printers. This reduces printing expenses and minimises administrative burdens. These targets can be reached even better with Secure & PickUp Printing.
Users can print to the pick-up queue on the PLOSSYS server from any application. If you want to pick up the printout later, you can go to the printer, identify yourself at the printer and get a list of outstanding printing jobs. After selecting the printing jobs that you want to print now, these are sent from the PLOSSYS server directly to the printer for output. Employees can identify themselves at the printer using their company ID and a card reader or with a mobile phone by scanning an RFID tag or a barcode on the printer.
For the option with the card reader, a client at the printer and another administrative server are also required. For this, SEAL Systems provides GeniusMFP from Genius Bytes in Bochum. It is manufacturer-neutral and supports multifunctional printers from Canon, Konica-Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, Ricoh, Samsung and Xerox. The identification of the job and all other functions takes place via the embedded client at the printer. The PickUp Printing solutions from the printer manufacturers, which work in a similar way to what is described here, are also supported.
For those who do not want to install a card reader for every printer that will be installed and who would rather link any printer they wish to the Secure + Pull Printing solution and would also like to have a more convenient user interface with a higher degree of user acceptance, can achieve this using the PLOSSYS DocPrint app. With PLOSSYS DocPrint, a barcode or an RFID tag is scanned at the printer. The app then displays all jobs currently in the pick-up queue for the user. These can then be simply output or deleted. PLOSSYS DocPrint is available for Android, iOS (Apple) and Windows Phone.
All printer manufacturers offer their own Secure & PickUp Printing solutions and there are also a few other solutions from independent providers. What is the advantage of a Secure & PickUp Printing solution with PLOSSYS after all?
