BI Incorporated, SOBERLINK Enter Distribution Agreement for SL2 Alcohol
BOULDER, Colo. -- July 8, 2013
BI Incorporated and SOBERLINK announced today that BI will be the exclusive
master distributor of the SOBERLINK SL2 for the criminal justice market. The
SL2 is an innovative handheld device, both cellular and GPS enabled, that
allows community corrections agencies to monitor offender sobriety in the
community. BI is a national provider of electronic monitoring technology and
monitoring services for community corrections and immigration agencies.
SOBERLINK was founded in 2010 and began selling SOBERLINK devices in 2011.
Today, SOBERLINK transmits more than 10,000 remote breath tests daily.
Under terms of the agreement, BI becomes the exclusive master distributor of
the SOBERLINK’s 2^nd generation SL2, taking over all existing reseller
relationships in the United States with the exception of Texas and Oklahoma.
“Community corrections agencies throughout the U.S. are often required to
monitor offenders for sobriety as a condition of release or supervision.
SOBERLINK is the leading provider of handheld remote breath technology, and
the SL2 is a simple, elegant solution for truly mobile alcohol monitoring,”
said Jock Waldo, Vice President, Marketing and EM Operations.
"It is our continued goal at SOBERLINK to build the most user-friendly,
discreet, and reliable alcohol monitoring product in the world. Partnering
with BI will enable us to support the tremendous growth that has come with the
achievement of our second-generation product, SL2. We have been on a yearlong
search for a synergistic partnership in offender monitoring that can take our
technology to the next level. We are confident that by partnering with BI, our
customers will continue to receive the best SOBERLINK has to offer,” said Brad
Keays, CEO, SOBERLINK.
Consumed alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream. Through a calculated
conversion, the SL2 measures alcohol in the body by its concentration in
breath, also known as breath alcohol concentration (BrAC).
The SOBERLINK SL2 is a sleek, one-piece monitoring device incorporating
cellular and GPS technology to transmit BrAC results in real-time. By
incorporating location-monitoring technology, a record of where the test was
submitted is logged. Also, the SL2 includes a high-resolution infrared camera
for color photos that identify the individual submitting the test. Other
