A common question posed to Cm3 is whether it is a software or a service.

At the core of Cm3 is an online ecosystem of supply chain compliance solutions, however a partnership with Cm3 involves more than simply software and support. Cm3’s key strength is its people. The teams within Cm3 are designed to understand, anticipate, and meet the needs of clients when it comes to their use of contractors or supply chain risks.

Whilst some businesses feel that they either need to adopt a software solution or engage consultants, Cm3 occupies a powerful position as a solutions provider that is an adaptive and capable hybrid of the two.

Cm3 as a Software

The Cm3 ecosystem modernises and standardises compliance practices through a robust and intuitive digital experience. The Cm3 interface offers an approachable system to share documentation and detail existing risk management practices to ensure vendors, such as contractors and suppliers, meet their clients’ requirements around WHS, ethical sourcing, and other areas of compliance.

Accessing essential information about vendors is imperative in reducing bottlenecks in the processes of risk management. Cm3 offers software to collect and track licences, insurances, and other contractor information, ensuring the management of WHS obligations are standardised throughout businesses.
