Scott Schaedle

Founder, Quore

Scott Schaedle founded Quore in 2012 after identifying the need for a solution to revolutionize and streamline hotel operations. Raised in a family rooted in the hospitality industry, Mr. Schaedle's background - combined with his advertising and graphic design expertise - inspired him to create Quore. Mr. Schaedle is the driving force behind the vision of the company and designed Quore through a collaboration between hoteliers, designers and software developers. In just a few short years, Quore grew from a few employees to 32, and is now located in an office that will allow for a 50 percent growth in staff. Under Mr. Schaedle's leadership, Quore surpassed its three-to-five-year plan in the first three months of business and now has more than 60,000 users at more than 2,100 hotels, including properties in leading management companies like: Chartwell Hospitality, InterMountain Management Company, McKibbon Hotel Management, InnVentures, Dimension Development, Newport Hospitality Group, and Vision Hospitality Group & NewcrestImage. In 2016 Quore was selected as a preferred software vendor for two of the world's largest lodging companies, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Choice Hotels International, Inc. In November 2016, Mr. Schaedle was named one of the top innovators in hotel operations by Lodging Magazine. Mr. Schaedle plans to continue the momentum of Quore's success by expanding Quore's suite of features and continue to invest in top-tier talent to strengthen its product offering to new and existing customers. Prior to founding Quore, Mr. Schaedle developed Central Equine, an equestrian marketing and advertising company at the age of 23. Holdings included an internationally distributed publication along with one of the largest equine website at the time, changing the way high-end horses are bought and sold to this day.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
