No. 2 SOBR Potential Catalyst - ABW Launches Touch-Based Alcohol Screening Offering With Purchase Of SOBRcheck™
SOBRsafe Expands to New York Metro Market via New Distributor with Ties to Air, Rail and Shipping Industries
ABW Compliance Services Commits to Mutual Success with Multi-Unit Purchase as Reseller
DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / October 10, 2022 / SOBR Safe, Inc. (NASDAQ:SOBR) (SOBRsafe™ or the Company), providers of industry-leading alcohol screening solutions, today announced that leading New York Metro-based substance compliance provider ABW Compliance Services (ABW) has launched its touch-based alcohol screening offering with an initial multi-unit purchase of the SOBRcheck™ solution. ABW's customers include top brands in air and train travel, as well as global shipping.
SOBRsafe has engaged ABW specifically to help eliminate potential catastrophes, as when reported in March 2022 that a commercial pilot was removed from the cockpit and taken into custody after having a blood-alcohol level more than four times the federal limit. Consistent with its current deployment for commercial drivers, SOBRcheck could verify the sobriety of all groundcrew and on-plane personnel as they report for duty - instantaneously and with no invasive, unhygienic tests.
Refocusing the Industry to Prevention and Support
"We believe companies should provide their employees with passive alcohol screening and education without severe permanent consequences affecting their employment because of a single positive result," stated ABW Compliance Services Founder & CEO Adam Winokur. "More inclusive workplaces that break down stigma around alcohol use and invest in the health and wellness of their staff will likely have less attrition. This will also result in a reduced cost to onboarding and more engaged, productive and happy employees. In addition, less revenue will be lost to substance use in the workplace."
Continued Mr. Winokur, "The implementation of SOBRcheck as a biometric time clock with passive testing will provide an exceptional opportunity to normalize conversations about employee mental fitness, the safe use of recreational substances and how to develop healthy coping mechanisms. At ABW Compliance Services, these are our core values - we are working to educate today's employers about tomorrow's substance-responsible workplace programs. We feel the values of SOBRsafe are closely aligned with ours, and we are excited to introduce to companies this ground-breaking and timely technology."

No. 3 SOBR Potential Catalyst - Butterfield (Leading Third-Party Administrator) Makes Initial Purchase Of SOBRcheck™ Tech
SOBR Safe Announces Initial SOBRcheck Purchase by Butterfield Onsite Drug Testing
Prominent Third-Party Administrator Launches SOBRsafe Solutions to Its Established Customer Network
DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 18, 2022 / SOBR Safe, Inc. (NASDAQ:SOBR) (SOBRsafe™ or the Company), providers of industry-leading alcohol detection solutions, today announced that leading Western U.S. third-party administrator (TPA) Butterfield Onsite Drug Testing (Butterfield) has launched its new touch-based detection offering with an initial purchase of the SOBRcheck™ technology. Butterfield has established a large customer network over its 19 years in the industry, one that includes national airlines for testing of pilots, flight attendants and ground crew. Butterfield is expected to have a dedicated sales professional represent SOBRsafe solutions to this network.
Working with organizations dedicated to safety and a drug- and alcohol-free environment, Butterfield provides administrative services, onsite collections, education & training and more. With touch-based alcohol detection, Butterfield is expanding into technology integration, bringing to customers SOBRcheck's passive, non-invasive alcohol screening that requires no onsite technician. 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.
"We believe that SOBRsafe's touch-based alcohol detection can revolutionize the industry, allowing for instant onsite testing with immediate results," said Butterfield Onsite Drug Testing Owner and CEO Tracie Butterfield. "From our market experience, the SOBRcheck solution is potentially ideal for organizations that employ drivers, machine operators or others in safety-sensitive positions. Moreover, SOBRcheck can drive demand for our other services - if we have this system in a client facility and alcohol is detected, they are going to call us with reasonable suspicion, and we'll go onsite to conduct breath alcohol and drug tests. We are thrilled to work with SOBRsafe, and we see this as both a singular business opportunity and a relationship closely aligned with our mission and core values."
"We are incredibly impressed by Tracie and her team - they are a beacon of energy and innovation for the industry. Acting as their own sales agent, they have a clear path to existing customer decision makers - access hard-won over nearly two decades in the business," said SOBRsafe Chief Revenue Officer Michael Watson. "We believe that this relationship could be a growth catalyst for both SOBRsafe and Butterfield - while potentially advancing alcohol safety in the workplace, on our roadways and in the skies."
