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.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
