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: Corporate Social Responsibility

The hotel industry has undertaken a long-term effort to build more responsible and socially conscious businesses. What began with small efforts to reduce waste - such as paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers - has evolved into an international movement toward implementing sustainable development practices. In addition to establishing themselves as good corporate citizens, adopting eco-friendly practices is sound business for hotels. According to a recent report from Deloitte, 95% of business travelers believe the hotel industry should be undertaking “green” initiatives, and Millennials are twice as likely to support brands with strong management of environmental and social issues. Given these conclusions, hotels are continuing to innovate in the areas of environmental sustainability. For example, one leading hotel chain has designed special elevators that collect kinetic energy from the moving lift and in the process, they have reduced their energy consumption by 50%  over conventional elevators. Also, they installed an advanced air conditioning system which employs a magnetic mechanical system that makes them more energy efficient. Other hotels are installing Intelligent Building Systems which monitor and control temperatures in rooms, common areas and swimming pools, as well as ventilation and cold water systems. Some hotels are installing Electric Vehicle charging stations, planting rooftop gardens, implementing stringent recycling programs, and insisting on the use of biodegradable materials. Another trend is the creation of Green Teams within a hotel's operation that are tasked to implement earth-friendly practices and manage budgets for green projects. Some hotels have even gone so far as to curtail or eliminate room service, believing that keeping the kitchen open 24/7 isn't terribly sustainable. 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.
