SOBRsafe Signs Five Additional Distributors, Gains Access to 52,000 Potential Users
29 Alcohol Detection Sales Professionals Now Selling SOBRcheck to 525 Established Customers
DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / December 22, 2022 / SOBR Safe, Inc. (NASDAQ:SOBR) (SOBRsafe™ or the Company), providers of industry-leading alcohol screening solutions, today announced that it has signed five additional distributors, bringing its total representation to nine distributors and 29 U.S. sales professionals. These distributors have successfully sold alcohol detection products to a combined 525 established customers, and each distributor has demonstrated their commitment to SOBRsafe through the purchase of multiple SOBRcheck™ devices. All nine distributors are fully trained, certified and are actively selling the technology to a network comprised of approximately 52,000 potential users.
The Benefits of a Distributor Model to SOBRsafe
As SOBRsafe Chairman & CEO Dave Gandini explained, "Distributors have secure, trust-based relationships with their customers - all of whom are sophisticated alcohol detection buyers in pursuit of advanced solutions. Our distributors are selling SOBRcheck to early adopters and innovators, accelerating our market penetration at no fixed cost to SOBRsafe. In addition, the sales cycle for distributors can be significantly shorter, as the SOBRcheck solution is simply replacing antiquated technology in ongoing, budgeted daily functions."
A New Era of Alcohol Safety and Support
SOBRsafe's advanced safety management technology SOBRcheck™ hygienically detects and instantaneously reports the presence of alcohol as emitted through the pores of a fingertip - no breath, blood or urine sample is required, just the touch of a finger. SOBRcheck was recently awarded the Occupational Health & Safety 2022 New Product of the Year - Safety Monitoring Devices, and has received the Child Safety Network Safe Family Seal of Approval.
The annual cost of alcohol abuse in the U.S. is $249 billion. Nearly half of all industrial accidents with injuries are alcohol-related, and 1-in-10 U.S. commercial drivers test positive for alcohol (the highest rate worldwide). In response, SOBRsafe™ has developed a proprietary, touch-based identity verification, alcohol detection and cloud-based reporting system. The technology is transferable across innumerable form factors, including stationary access control, personal wearables and for telematics integration.
A preventative solution in historically reactive industries, it is being deployed for commercial fleets, workplaces, alcohol rehabilitation and probation management; other intended applications include airlines and young drivers. This patent-pending alcohol detection solution helps prevent an intoxicated worker from taking the factory floor or a driver from receiving the keys to a truck, bus or rideshare vehicle. An offender is immediately flagged, and an administrator is empowered to take the appropriate corrective actions. At SOBRsafe, we are creating a culture of prevention and support.
