Best Western Borås is a four-star hotel and has 52 rooms across five different room types. They have been a beta client to Atomize since the summer of 2017. From December 2017 they have applied 100% of Atomize price recommendations. Borås is a city in Sweden with about 100 000 inhabitants. The town has five hotels and a total capacity of over 600 rooms per night.
Why it matters: Best Western Borås (BW Borås) started using Atomize at the end of 2017 and in Q1 2018 their RevPAR increased with 16.9%.
  • The increase in RevPAR is adjusted for seasonality and considers the market trend of the city and the number of rooms that were out of order. Hence, it is a true increase that can directly be attributed to the effect of using Atomize.

Top 3 Core Objectives: To be able to automatically optimize rates and by doing so with Atomize increase RevPAR and their market share.
  • Increase RevPAR: By implementing dynamic room price settings and adjusting rates faster than the competition and in line with market demand, increase RevPAR.

  • Increase market growth: To determine the effect that Atomize has on RevPAR, it is crucial to take the development of the local market into consideration. If the RevPAR of the local market grows by 10% and the RevPAR of BW Borås also grows by 10%, then the effects of using Atomize would be zero, even though the RevPAR increased. The overall objective is to show that Atomize generates a growth above index in the local market.
