LRS Output Management for SAP
In conjunction with SAP, LRS has developed a fully integrated, web-based software solution that replaces nearly all of a customer’s incumbent print server infrastructure and specialized hardware. This results in significant cost savings for hardware and infrastructure plus a reduction in administration and helpdesk resources needed to manage and support document output.
Our SAP-certified solution replaces nearly all of the native print server infrastructure and specialized hardware
The VPSX/OutputManager® solution is platform- and device-independent, so it won’t matter if you want to change printer providers, upgrade your Windows® version, or start using cloud or virtualized desktops. Combined with other LRS® products, the solution can be extended to include your entire output landscape from mainframe through all open systems applications to create a single standard middleware platform for output.
Administration of SAP Output
VPSX/OutputManager software provides a single point of control and administration for managing documents from SAP® applications. This centralized control simplifies and reduces the time for installation, moves, adds and changes (IMAC) when rolling out SAP changes or consolidating instances. The solution provides automated error detection and correction to ensure operational continuity. Any issues that do occur can be quickly and easily resolved through the centralized web interface.
Integration with SAP
The solution transforms native SAP GOF / OTF formats into printer-ready data streams with required inline font characters (e.g., Unicode) and barcodes, thus eliminating the need for costly printer add-on hardware modules. SAP developed its External Output Management (BC-XOM) interface to offer a scalable alternative to problematic native OS-based document facilities. VPSX/OutputManager software leverages the BC-XOM interface to provide reliable end-to-end document delivery and status feedback from the SAP user interface to the printed page.
LRS software integrates with SAP document composition tools SAPscript and/or SAP SmartForms as well as other 3rd party tools such as OpenText™ StreamServe® to ensure we effectively manage your entire output landscape.
