Consolidate printing and maximize equipment utilization with QManager Pro for PRISMAsync. QManager Pro for PRISMAsync accepts jobs from any source, including the network, mainframes, hot folders, and other RSA applications such as WebCRD and M.I.S. Print. Centrally manage and route print jobs to a wide range of destinations, including production printers, the fleet, archival systems, email, or submit into an external prepress and workflow application.

QManager Pro for PRISMAsync supports numerous file formats including PostScript, PDF, PCL, LCDS, EBCDIC, ASCII, IPDS and VIPP™.

Boost productivity, control and automate production, while reducing costs and maximizing printer utilization. Simplify workflows to improve flexibility and turnaround time.


The QManager Pro for PRISMAsync workflow

When it receives a job, QManager Pro for PRISMAsync analyzes and extracts key attributes that determine how, when, and where jobs should be printed or processed. Jobs are held in a spool where operators can manually schedule and route the jobs, or QManager Pro for PRISMAsync can print automatically based on preset business rules. QManager Pro for PRISMAsync automatically determines printer availability, balances the load, and directs each job to the appropriate queue.


QManager Pro for PRISMAsync is ideal for:

  • Companies with multiple input sources or printers
  • Print centers operating in mixed printer or high volume environments
  • Companies who require job or color-splitting and job batching
  • Corporate print centers running mainframe, network and publishing jobs
  • In-plants who would like to reduce manual steps in their workflow

Options

QManager Pro for PRISMAsync is available in two configurations and has a number of additional modules for added functionality.

QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Configurations

QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Print Server Designed for entry level output management, QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Print Service is a pre-configured package of server and software. QManager Pro for PRISMAsync add-on modules and customizations are not available with QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Print Server.
QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Output Manager Provides the full capabilities of QManager Pro for PRISMAsync, its add-on modules and robust customization of workflows. QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Output Manager runs on an RSA-provided server or VM image.

Additional RSA modules

QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Make Ready Module By converting print jobs from popular make ready programs and formats such as Xerox FreeFlow Makeready, XPIF, XRX, Kodak SmartBoard, and JDF, the QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Make Ready Module enables QManager Pro for PRISMAsync to print to a diverse set of devices while leveraging QManager Pro for PRISMAsync's powerful accounting and job management capabilities. Select your preferred workflow software and print to any production printer.
QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Accounting Module This web-based interface streamlines and simplifies the account, chargeback, and account fund verification processes, providing accounting, tracking, and reporting on print job costs.
QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Dynamics Dynamics is RSA's Variable Data offering, available for WebCRD and QManager Pro for PRISMAsync, Dynamics provides the functionality variable data print and trans promotional jobs. The QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Dynamics module allows print shops to offer sophisticated yet easy-to-design variable data templates and apply business rules to control how they are populated. Common applications include ID cards, insurance policies, business cards, postcards, mailers, and newsletters. Because QManager Pro for PRISMAsync can work with RSA's datacenter solutions to transform legacy data streams, QManager Pro for PRISMAsync Dynamics can be added to easily create personalized and transpromo documents.
