3M and CMO COMPLIANCE (CMO) have announced a new partnership in which CMO will provide the software platform for the 3M Firestop Management System. The arrangement will give users of the 3M Firestop Management System the benefits of CMO’s flexible, cloud-based mobile solution, with an intuitive interface and up-to-the-minute configuration. The 3M Firestop Management System is a web-based application that helps facility managers control their operations, improve compliance performance and simplify the inspection process. The easy-to-use software helps provide real-time management of critical information, such as relevant firestop documentation, worksite permits and daily passes. It also helps track the status of firestop installations and generate reports with critical firestop system and contractor status information. With this partnership, the 3M Firestop Management System will become even more versatile by allowing significant user configurations, ultimately creating a faster and easier management tool for facility managers and their teams. 3M has been an industry pioneer in firestopping for more than 30 years, providing customers with cutting-edge, fully integrated product, systems and technical support. The partnership with CMO will enable 3M to focus its expertise on developing new, innovative technologies, while the software driving the 3M Firestop Management System is managed by an industry leader in enterprise governance, risk and compliance software solutions. “This relationship with CMO will give our customers the best possible tools and support, with expertise from 3M – the trusted leader in firestop technology – and CMO, the experts in risk management compliance,” said Bill Kesting, business unit manager for 3M Fire Protection Products. “We are pleased to work with 3M to refine its software platform and better enable facility managers to attend to the critical business of firestopping,” said John Castner, Solutions Manager and Strategic Partnerships, CMO.
