On the journey there, another problem solving opportunity emerged. With a core philosophy anchored in innovation, it didn’t take long before the SRTX team took notice of the inefficiencies inherent in traditional manufacturing. With its establishment of in-house manufacturing, streamlining the production process was critical.
This led the SRTX team to develop our own in-house software that changed how production connects back to the business. As we reduced our dependence on manual tracking, our ability to make operational decisions using real data increased. Over the last year, we have decreased our cost to produce 50%. We quickly realized our solution would benefit not only Sheertex but other manufacturers interested in progressive processes. Enter Cortex.
Today the Sheertex factory is the only connected hosiery factory in the world, with every part of the production process tracked in real-time using Cortex, the proprietary SRTX operating system developed in-house.
