SEPTEMBER 2015 Technology in the Workplace Technologies both at home and in the workplace have drastically changed in the last decade. June’s ISPA Snapshot Survey asked members to share how technology is shaping their business, what is working for them (and what isn’t) as well as how they regulate the use of technology by staff and guests in a spa environment. What tech-related options are offered by spas? The chart below offers a glimpse of some of the technological solutions used by spas. It’s clear that, with all of the available technologies, there’s a fine line between usage of technologies that can help advance a business and those that can disrupt a spa environment. The full report contains insightful information that helps keep ISPA members up-to-date with what’s trending in the spa industry.
