Deloitte and CMO COMPLIANCE Announce Strategic Alliance
NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2012 — Deloitte and CMO COMPLIANCE™ (CMO), a leader in enterprise governance, risk and compliance (eGRC) software solutions, today announced an alliance to provide solutions to consumer product, food service, retail and distribution companies by combining the strategic risk advisory experience of Deloitte with the software platform provided by CMO COMPLIANCE.
Deloitte’s alliance with CMO focuses on the CMO eGRC platform that contains a full suite of modules based on leading global practices to facilitate risk management. CMO’s flexible, cloud-based mobile solutions can be configured without the need for time-consuming software development. CMO’s success can be attributed to its use of intuitive interfaces and the latest technologies. Addressing the increasingly complex risks in critical areas of food safety & quality, vendor governance, regulatory compliance and the overall integration of these areas with business performance requires deep consulting knowledge and a powerful software platform, which is the goal of the alliance.
“This strategic alliance helps accelerate Deloitte’s speed to execution and allows us to efficiently conduct food safety and quality assessments around the globe while providing real-time monitoring and reporting of results. CMO, through this alliance, significantly enhances its ability to help clients strategically transform operations to facilitate food & product safety improvements throughout the value chain,”, said James Cascone, principal at Deloitte & Touche LLP and national leader of Deloitte’s food & product safety practice.
Deloitte and CMO have already worked together on a number of implementations, with very positive results. Both organizations are recognized as global leaders in their field.
CMO, with global headquarters in London, was recognized by Gartner as being a visionary provider of eGRC platform in their October 2012 report: 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Software Platforms. CMO’s solid global support and sales organization complements Deloitte’s global presence, and includes a mobile platform.
