Enjoy SAPSprint benefits without the downside risk

SAPSprint has long been a popular solution for printing formatted SAP documents, as it affords all the font and device freedom of Windows printing and is a simple service to install. It lets organizations leverage Windows print composition and remains one of the only ways to print languages with special requirements like ARABIC and THAI FONT Shaping. It also enables printing of PDF files on non-PDF capable devices. But there is a downside: SAPSprint relies on the problematic Windows spooler.

If a SAPSprint print job fails to print, there is no feedback to the SAP user or application. For critical SAP output like shipping forms, barcode labels, etc. this puts business processes at risk.

Working with experts at SAP, LRS integrated the SAP Supplied OMSPRINT interface that enables SAP applications to send SAPSprint output to LRS’ own external output management system. Doing so combines the advantages of device type-independent printing and font flexibility of SAPSprint with the performance and reliability advantages of the LRS solution (such as print job monitoring and status confirmation via a Remote Function Call).

LRS OMSPRINT for SAPSprint Legacy Output

LRS Software Enables You To:

  • Provide print status feedback messages to the SAP application by means of the BC-XOM interface
  • Leverage the print status monitoring and automated retry capabilities of the LRS output management solution
  • Extend SAPSprint printing to non PCL, PostScript, and ZPL printers by proving flexibility in print driver usage
  • Take advantage of PJL controlled delivery and ZPL controlled delivery to ensure output jobs are delivered and printed to completion

Printing in SAP Environments

Why does SAP output disappear sometimes when using SAPSprint? It likely that SAPSprint is probably not the cause of the problem. However, as SAPSprint uses the Windows spooler to create and deliver the output, this solution may not be reliable enough under certain circumstances for SAP output that involves unattended, automatic, or workstation print.

A few years back, SAP development LRS worked together on a comprehensive solution for the reliable printing of SAPSprint-produced output. The solution works very well and certainly does solve the problem.

USE CASE: Barcode & Asian fonts in SAP

End to end control of any print device

Precision Measurement-450x500.png

A global provider of precision measuring instruments was expanding their SAP footprint to more than 2500 new users in their Chinese subsidiaries. These facilities used impact printers as well as Zebra barcode devices, and were using SAPSprint to facilitate the use of special fonts. The inability of SAPSprint to provide real-time print status updates to the SAP applications in Zurich caused problems.

LRS helped them implement the OMSPRINT solution that brought end-to-end control of these non-standard print devices. This gives the SAP admin group a clear view of their global print landscape and helped them:

  • Save money by eliminating the need Windows Print Servers
  • Centralize the process of provisioning, configuring, and supporting print devices for all SAP printing in their global network
  • Implement an SAP-certified output solution able to evolve as the organization moves toward a cloud-based SAP environment
