Variable output management for the ASB regional association Bonn / Rhein-Sieg / Eifel

With over 270 full-time employees at four locations, the Regional Association Bonn / Rhine-Sieg / Eifel of the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund is a modern, medium-sized service company. Social services range from outpatient care services to counseling services and assisted living. Coordination between departments requires continuous collaboration and cross-site information sharing among employees. In order to optimize the office workflow and the associated document output, the ASB regional association has renewed the printer landscape at each location and networked the devices for location-independent document output. The print, fax, copy, e-mail and scan processes are controlled by the Q PILOT® print and output management system. Each department has a Q PILOT® server that monitors the local systems and charges the services cost-centered. Via the Interchange module, the Q PILOT® servers are networked together and enable secure document output at all locations. “The system is a great help. Within the departments, the print tracking runs smoothly. I am very glad to have switched to Q PILOT®. “, Summarizes Mr. Daugs, IT-Project Leader of the regional association, a lot of output applications at the ASB The ASB regional association has formulated some use cases for cross-location document output For example, assigning multiple logins to individual users ensures that a user can send their print jobs to different user groups, or even print them out for themselves, and all members of the user group, regardless of location, can then access the documents The various logins allow the user to easily and securely control the access rights to his documents Another use case for the ASB regional association is the sharing of an employee card between several employeesindividual logins the list of his print jobs for the document output. User authentication on the Q PILOT® card reader is done via the employee card. In card validation, the Q PILOT® server accesses the map data assigned to users in the LDAP. Thanks to the native LDAP interface, the maintenance of user accounts via the local Q PILOT® server is no longer necessary. The administrative effort is noticeably reduced.
