OVERVIEW

Printed documents are essential drivers for key business processes, from the production line right through to invoicing. Disruptions to printing can bring those processes to a standstill, resulting in unnecessary costs and loss of revenue. Columbus OM is a high performance output management system that increases the reliability of your printing and safeguards your business against costly printing failures.

Designed to run on open systems, Columbus OM assures delivery of documents and data from any application, regardless of technology platform, to any networked printer. All print jobs and printers throughout your organization are managed centrally, from a single point of control, allowing you to detect and correct problems quickly - before they start affecting your customers and business users.

Columbus OM integrates with third party applications such as SAP® Business Suite to strengthen their output management capabilities, freeing you from the costs and risks of adapting your core systems.

KEY FEATURES

  • Columbus OM Administrator
    An intuitive browser-based administrator interface displays the health of your entire corporate printing infrastructure and helps you diagnose and fix output problems quickly
  • Automated print recovery
    In the event of a device or network failure print jobs are recovered automatically; documents can be rerouted to another printer, while users are notified and any missing pages are reprinted
  • Automated splitting and bundling
    Output can be combined or split to create new documents without the effort of modifying the original documents or source applications; paper waste is also reduced by only printing the pages users really need
  • Content Analysis and Transformation (CAT)
    A powerful transformation engine converts documents into alternative output formats as required, enabling you to print on a wider range of production and distributed printers
  • Enterprise Control
    Bulk system changes, such as adding new printers, can be made in one central location, and are then instantly applied throughout your global printer network, across all Columbus OM instances
  • SAP Device Configuration
    Two-way SAP integration reduces duplication of effort by allowing you to define printers just once, in either your SAP or Columbus OM system and then replicate any changes automatically across both systems
  • Device Fleet Monitor (DFM)
    An option for the office printing environment, DFM monitors consumables usage, incidents, downtime and print volumes by device to help you identify any inefficiencies and rationalize your printer fleet
  • OnCall secure printing
    Office workers can print documents at any networked printer of their choice following verification of their identity using a PIN, security card, network ID and password or biometric methods
  • Integrated business intelligence
    Columbus Accounting provides detailed statistics on every aspect of your printing environment, to support service level reporting, billing, forecasting and infrastructure optimization
