Within the course of a Europe-wide tender, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin decided to use the docuFORM Mercury complete solution. The Charité is one of the most important university hospitals in the world. With a total of 17 Charité centers and 128 clinics and institutes, the company generates total revenues of 1.6 billion euros per year, with a workforce of 17,000 employees.
Once again, the all-important solution for using docuFORM Mercury was the integrated solution as a global Document & Output Management System. In addition to the integrated host connection, the decision was based on secure printing and the Mercury Global Printer Driver (GPD). This is the reason the entire solution package Mercury from docuFORM is used throughout the Charité.
First of all, docuFORM Fleet & Service Management (MPS) ensures optimal availability of all printing systems. At the same time, the MPS data controls the docuFORM Global Printer Driver (GPD) in a self-learning and maintenance-free operation. The SAP interface, which is also supported by the Mercury Follow“2“Print solution, completes the workflow within the Charité. In addition, document management "Atlas" generates and formats documents from the host environments, which can then be securely output as part of the Mercury workflow.
Special attention is paid to the secure printing. As an alternative to printing with traditional printer drivers from the manufacturer, the docuFORM Global Printer Driver (GPD) also incorporates end „2“ end encryption of all print data. In addition to all other manufacturers, an embedded app for Canon MFPs is now also available for Follow“2“Print. Cloud and AirPrint complete the print workflow at the Charité. This guarantees correct and secure printing of all medical documents at all times.

The introduction of the Mercury Suite, including the Global Printer Driver, greatly enhances the flexibility of medical services in the variable printing of patient data. To ensure a seamless transition to the Mercury environment, a process has been developed in collaboration with the Charité, which significantly simplifies the rollout of the GPD. During the automated installation process, the GPD recognizes every previous configuration of the traditional printer drivers of the respective workstation and configures itself identically so that smooth further operation can be guaranteed for each and every employee.
Martin Denk, CEO docuFORM: „We are delighted that we have received this strategic mission from such a historic company. Especially in medical environments such as the Charité, where human lives are paramount, Mercury ensures optimal and secure printing at all times, whether from office en-vironments or via host printing. Even label printers can now be integrated into the GPD workflow.“
