In a new partnership, Cortex Design has teamed up with CoLab Software to solve the challenges of remote collaboration among their team, customers, and vendors.
Cortex Design is a product design and manufacturing firm in Toronto, Ontario with a mission to develop products that advance the human experience. With their customized ISO-9001 aligned design process, the Cortex team works with clients to launch market-changing and award-winning medical or consumer products. After working from home for more than a year, Cortex reached out to CoLab to address some persistent pain points with remote collaboration.
As a purpose-built solution for collaborative engineering design review, CoLab is a centralized hub for the Cortex team’s design processes that makes it simple to bring customers and vendors into the conversation. CoLab’s intuitive web-based software enables asynchronous review, meaning everyone can work on their own schedule and the need for online meetings is drastically reduced. Issue tracking is now simplified and happens automatically in CoLab, with files and feedback living side-by-side for full design context.
"With the move to remote working this year, we were spending too much time in online meeting design reviews, and we lacked a good process for tracking the issues that came up in those reviews,” says Dylan Horvath, President of Cortex Design. “CoLab solves both. We can meet asynchronously when each team member has time, plus it gives us a simple platform for bringing our clients and vendors into the conversation. It's been a game-changer for how we get our work done.”
