Interface Management Software
for Engineering & Construction
Formalize Contractor Collaboration Alignment with Interface Connect
Interface Connect is the latest evolution of Coreworx interface management software for major projects. Interface Connect includes the interface management processes trusted by projects around the world for more than 15 years and combines that power with power with new user-centric experiences aimed at optimizing efficiencies, adoption, and ease of use for all parties.
Interface Connect provides project teams with automated tools that facilitate formal collaboration alignment between contracting parties at interfaces on large capital projects. Interface Connect manages the communication and activities required to define and control scope delineation, track all interface requests to completion, and ensure key stakeholders are kept informed.
Project owners / sponsors, EPCs, and other project stakeholders can monitor interface progress, identify trends, and mitigate schedule interface-related risk through interactive dashboards and reports.
Supporting best practices in interface management, Interface Connect replaces spreadsheets or paper-based interface management systems that limit the efficiency of contractor interactions, deliverable timelines, and oversight of interface issues.
