Notes to answerer
Asker: I was actually hoping for an alternative to interface, as it works fine in relation to IT, but it seems a bit off as a word describing interaction between divisions of a company. I have used interface in the past, however, and will do so again if I can't find a better alternative.

contact / contact point / link


Explanation:
What about simply using a word like "contact" or "link" instead? As I read it, that is what the word "grænseflade" basically refers to in this context.

Example sentence(s):
  • To assure closer contact between line and staff and between divisions themselves, he settled on the interdivisional committee. ...
  • to improve links between the Divisions/Branches and the centrally-placed TLG

Explanation:
I virkeligheden burde der nok have stået 'berøringsflade(r)', men IT-påvirkningen er åbenbart smittet af på ophavsmanden.
