SOBRsafe Inc. (NASDAQ: SOBR) Releases Case Studies Demonstrating SOBRcheck(TM)’s Performance; CEO Provides Comprehensive Update

  • SOBRsafe recently published three case studies that empirically demonstrate the performance of its alcohol screening technology, SOBRcheck(TM), based on customer data, experiences, and results
  • SOBRcheck can be used as a safe, convenient, and fast replacement for cumbersome and unhygienic breathalyzers 
  • One case study shows that SOBRcheck enabled TerraTech to achieve a 100% pass rate per week against an estimated industry average weekly violator rate of between 60% and 70%
  • By deploying SOBRcheck, Big Horn County has been able to provide cost-effective alcohol monitoring services for more than 100 community members, while Alternatives Inc. has achieved 4x faster throughput at check-in/check-out
  • SOBRsafe CEO recently provided a comprehensive update on the company in a fireside chat video

A disruptive company leveraging advanced alcohol detection approaches and technologies, SOBRsafe (NASDAQ: SOBR) is a provider of next-generation touch-based alcohol screening, detection, and monitoring solutions, as well as real-time reporting software. Among these revolutionary solutions is SOBRcheck(TM).

A stationary identification and alcohol screening/monitoring technology launched in 2021, SOBRcheck detects and instantaneously reports the presence of alcohol emitted through the pores of a fingertip. It is equipped with a biometric identifier that automatically confirms the user’s identity and hardcodes this identification information, as well as the date and time of the screening, into the automatically generated reports, thus boosting reliability.

SOBRcheck can be used at the entry points of job sites, as TerraTech Services, a national leader in oilfield services and logistics, has done since November 2022, following a successful pilot program. In this pilot program, TerraTech worked with SOBRsafe to deploy the SOBRcheck platform at the points of entry of two of its 16 sites.

“The procedure was straightforward: TerraTech employees simply placed their hand on SOBRcheck, confirming their identity and conducting alcohol screening in under 10 seconds. The results were transmitted in real-time to an administrative portal with alerts to mobile devices,” described SOBRsafe in a recent case study (https://nnw.fm/pV3gW), the first of three case studies that SOBRsafe has published. These case studies empirically demonstrate SOBRcheck’s performance based on customer data and experiences, according to a February 7 press release announcing their publication (https://nnw.fm/hwkH8). 

The results were remarkable, with TerraTech experiencing “tremendous success,” as a Health, Safety, and Environment Manager at the company put it. TerraTech achieved 100% compliance from employees at both pilot sites within a short period, so much so that after a month of daily testing, the company was confident of SOBRcheck’s effectiveness and subsequently worked with SOBRsafe to install the SOBRcheck devices at the remaining 14 sites.

This larger-scale deployment result was as impactful as the first, with one location witnessing a remarkable 100% decrease in alcohol-positive results within a two-week period. Overall, TerraTech, which screens employees for alcohol three times a day, had logged over 80,000 scans into the SOBRsafe portal as of December 31, 2023, achieving an effective 100% pass rate per week. In contrast, TerraTech estimates that the industry average weekly violator rate stands at 60-70%.

SOBRcheck can also be deployed to replace traditional breathalyzer tests, which require dedicated staff – because they have to be manually administered – and are expensive, cumbersome, time-consuming, and unhygienic. For instance, Big Horn, Montana’s 6th largest county in landmass, which previously used traditional breathalyzer tests for its 24/7 Sobriety Program, turned to SOBRsafe in July 2023, initially deploying the SOBRcheck technology in two locations within the County building.

Since deployment, the screening has followed – and still follows – an unstaffed testing procedure in which each participant simply completes their alcohol screen in about 10 seconds. This marks an improvement from the past when it could take hours for County staff to process a group of individuals. In conjunction with SOBRsafe, Big Horn County has created an efficient, cost-effective program for court-mandated, passive alcohol screening outside of major metro areas. The program is not only hygienic and convenient, but it also improves safety, reduces costs, and enhances accountability and accessibility. As of December 2023, for example, it had achieved a 92% total pass rate, up from 67% in July (https://nnw.fm/EEqAY). 

“In providing cost-effective monitoring services for more than 100 community members, SOBRcheck has been a big win for our county staff, taxpayers, and participants,” the second case study quotes Big Horn County Misdemeanor Probation and Pre-Trial Services Officer as saying. “Both participants and our staff are given back hours in their days to be more productive. I believe this will also lead to more successful results for all those in court-mandated programs, as it is no longer cost-prohibitive to participate.”

On its part, Alternatives Inc., a leader in community corrections and re-entry strategies, installed SOBRcheck devices at the Alpha House, a men’s pre-release center, and Passages, a residential program for women comprising of a pre-release center, an assessment center, and a drug and alcohol treatment program. SOBRcheck delivers in 10 seconds what the observed screening procedure using a traditional breathalyzer would deliver in 45 seconds, with the high number of screens compounding the time savings.

“Across 2,073 scans, it would have taken the Alternatives team approximately 25 hours via their observed breathalyzer process versus less than six hours with SOBRcheck – up to 4x faster throughput [at check-in/check-out],” explains the third case study (https://nnw.fm/EgjWC). Thus, SOBRsafe’s revolutionary device is much faster than the traditional test.

SOBRsafe has also recently provided a comprehensive video update on the company from Chairman and CEO Dave Gandini (https://nnw.fm/hLFM3). In the video, Gandini discussed the company’s suite of solutions, target markets (including justice and behavioral health), out-licensing prospects, integration opportunities, supply chain, product fulfillment, customer service, a digital and social media initiative to drive online SOBRsure sales at www.SOBRstore.com, and more.
