Interface Management Software
 for Engineering & Construction 


Formalize Contractor Collaboration

Coreworx Interface Management Software provides project teams with automated tools that facilitate formal collaboration between contracting parties at interfaces on large capital projects.

Coreworx 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, Coreworx replaces spreadsheets or paper-based interface management systems that limit the efficiency of contractor interactions, deliverable timelines, and oversight of interface issues.
