Minneapolis, 1 June, 2021: CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USTPO), in order to better refine and align accommodation options to business trip parameters.

The patent is the second accommodation-related patent award in the past three years, and follows the 2017 launch of RoomIt, its industry-first hotels proposition.

“The development of patented technologies reflects our aim of delivering a consumer-grade experience in the business travel space,” said John Pelant, CWT’s Chief Technology Officer. “Our approach has been driven forward by consistent, significant investments in both technology and people skills.

CWT has successfully been issued nine patents in as many years (2013-2021), covering a range of technological innovation from messaging to boarding-pass retrieval, and site navigation to user interface developments.


CWT is a Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform. Companies and governments rely on us to keep their people connected – anywhere, anytime, anyhow – and across six continents, we provide their employees with innovative technology and an efficient, safe and secure travel experience.
