Welcome to i_CONSIGNMENT, our inventory management system. Created to ensure you deliver the best customer experience – every time – on time. Speed to market is critical, we know your reputation depends on it. i_CONSIGNMENT ensures that you can react fast, with genuine flexibility. In the ever increasingly competitive print service industry – growing and retaining your customers, is crucial. Always have the right stock, in the right place, at the right time.
i_CONSIGNMENT has a range of sturdy, effective shelving solutions to suit all your production requirements. We’re also able to work with your existing shelving systems.
Consuming your stock as you go - is critical to keeping your i_CONSIGNMENT optimised and running smoothly. This ensures a straightforward invoicing and restocking process with no delays.
At first I was a bit reluctant to swap over to i_CONSIGNMENT but now using it for the last 8 months, it has been fantastic. Especially throughout Covid, it allowed us to control cash flow while not missing out on any urgent work as all our stocks were sitting on the shelves ready to go . Our Production Manager has also embraced it, as i_CONSIGNMENT now means the end of stock takes.

As a typical offset printer, we had been cutting stock down to use on our digital presses rather than using paper already trimmed through Ball & Doggett to save a little money due to different pricing from larger sheets to trim down. We decided to give i_CONSIGNMENT a go and the savings we have been able to make within the business is enormous. No more down time on staff cutting down sheets, cut errors and ordering paper have been major advantages from my point of view.
All sheets supplied are wrapped in reams clearly labelled and cut perfectly to ensure no down time on the presses and ease of our finishing department to complete jobs without any movement. The online portal for i_CONSIGNMENT is extremely easy to use - allocate and consume stock that you have onsite and the automatic replenishment when you have reached the minimum amount (which is set by you and can be adjusted at any stage.) Overall, this move to i_CONSIGNMENT has been an extremely easy process and looking back we should have implemented this into our business years ago. I highly recommend other companies to incorporate i_CONSIGNMENT into their business.

As the owner operator of Edgeprint in Mooroopna, I have been ordering paper using i_CONSIGNMENT for awhile now and I find it quite an efficient way to place all of our Ball & Doggett orders. It is simple and easy to use and can confidently recommend it.
I would be very happy to recommend Ball & Doggett’s i_CONSIGNMENT as a great way to buy paper. There are plenty of benefits to using i_CONSIGNMENT with the main ones being you always have the paper you need on hand ready to use. If you need to adjust the variety of paper or minimum and maximum levels for each type of paper stocked, you can do so easily. You are not invoiced for the paper until you actually use it and record its use on the system and you only get invoiced once a month which cuts down on data entry. Orders are always delivered the next day with no delivery fee and in good condition by a friendly Ball & Doggett driver. Finally, I’ve saved time and money by using i_CONSIGNMENT as I don’t have lots of different varieties of paper sitting on the shelves that I’ve only used for one job nor do I have extra delivery charges for last minute orders.
