CIC Hospitality is a fast-growing hotel operator focusing on best-in-class cost management and innovative solutions that operates 20+ properties in Scandiavia with another 7 properties in the pipeline. In their portfolio, they operate multiple properties within well-known brands such as Thon Hotels and Best Western. CIC was started by four colleagues/friends with a hotel background who wanted to challenge the hotel industry with an innovative/technological hotel concept focused on the environment and, not least, to create workplaces where employees thrive and have fun. The owners of CIC decided early on to focus on a win/win approach in negotiations and cooperation with others.
Why it matters: One of their main success factors is enabling higher automation and customer centricity to drive improved satisfaction. The company’s vision is to care, inspire and create experiences.
  • Atomize is a lean revenue management system that enables hoteliers to spend less time on manually setting prices for rooms and instead focus more on the strategic revenue management. With real-time price optimization it is possible to take advantage of even the slightest changes in the market or your internal (PMS) data to maximize your property’s revenue. By automatically retrieving and analyzing internal and external data, Atomize’s RMS updates a hotel’s room rates in real-time.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Their main objectives were to decrease manual labour, remove human preferences and get a better multi-property overview to measure performance and KPIs.
  • Decrease manual tasks: Back in time, price setting ate up most of the time since it was a manual, daily process to collect, analyze and adjust prices. As their portfolio grew, the need for a more sophisticated and automated way of setting prices increased.

  • Implement a multi-property overview: It was difficult to get a good overview of the pricing as there was no easy way to summarise the performance and KPI:s for all of their properties.

  • Remove human preferences: Atomize is not steered by feelings, it’s completely data-driven, and because of that it can optimize prices to its full potential without human assumptions or preferences around historic pricing which usually limits revenue managers.


Atomize is a lean Revenue Management Software built for hoteliers that want to generate revenue and do more with less.
