Output management software (OMS), also known as enterprise output management, refers to a collection of computer applications that centralizes and automates document management. This software utilizes a point-and-click designer interface through which standard output is automatically converted into more attractive, functional, and efficient electronic documents. These documents can then be intelligently distributed over a variety of delivery channels, including print, email, fax, web or document management archive. According to IMARC Group, the global output management software market size reached US$ 53.6 Billion in 2019.

The numerous advantages offered by OMS represent one of the major growth-inducing factors. OMS aids in enhancing the efficiency of administrative tasks by integrating workflow management systems and assisting in improving regulatory compliance. Along with this, the growing information technology (IT) industry and rising need for business process automation have encouraged various business organizations to rapidly adopt OMS. This enables them to efficiently and cost-effectively manage high-volume business document distribution from virtually any source to any destination across the distributed enterprise, thereby eliminating the requirement for additional printing devices across multiple organizational departments.
