Ready for AFP/Archive (AFP/A) ISO standard

Enterprise Print Manager is prepared to support the new AFP/Archive (AFP/A) standard. ISO 18565:2015 specifies the AFP document architecture by defining a subset appropriate for long-term preservation and retrieval of documents and resources.

Integrate Mainframe output into your secure printing solution

The MPI Tech solution spools the print jobs from the host server through the MPI Tech Print Sub System (PSS). Print jobs include information about job header and user name that is recognised and associated with the user account in the secure print management system.

Our DocOut application converts the print stream into PCL or PostScript format that can be printed on standard office printers and MFPs.

The print stream can be directed to practically any pull printing solution on the market.

The host server print jobs are stored on the secure print server alongside standard office application output until the document owner logs in at printer or MFP and selects the document to be printed.
