About iWORCS

iWORCS is a collaboration tool that enables councils, utilities, and government agencies to cooperate in the scheduling of infrastructure works. 

Community anger, traffic congestion, safety issues, and loss of revenue for local businesses are often the by-products of traditional scheduling practices.

iWORCS offers a simple, best practice approach to capital works management. It puts the community first, while delivering significant time and cost savings. The system has been initiated by the Streets Opening Coordination Council (SOCC).

After 7 years utilising the initial Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, SOCC has identified system improvements and a new approach being brought to life. Many lessons have been learnt and countless opportunities achieved between utilities and road authorities over the past seven years. 2024 brings together an improved approach with our platform partner PelicanCorp which is recognized internationally for its suite of products and high-quality customer service.

How does it work?

Built on a scalable cloud platform with intelligent mapping at the centre, iWORCS presents layer upon layer of capital works data as a common operating picture. 
Project managers access this information via an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface; observing the location, extent and proposed date of capital works projects – across an unlimited timeline.
Opportunities to collaborate, along with scheduling conflicts, are instantly identified and alerts are sent to the nominated project contacts.
Project owners are then able to connect directly, via the application’s messenger function, allowing for more efficient communications and ultimately more effective collaboration on the scheduling of roadworks. 

iWORCS is delivered through a SaaS platform, with an annual subscription fee payable to SOCC.
