CWT is planning to invest $100 million into its travel management platform following its recently announced recapitalization plan.
The $100 million is part of the $350 million in equity capital that will go toward repaying debt as well as investing in the business.
The funds will go into the company's myCWT platform including further investment in its sustainability offering as well as the enhancement of the booking experience.
According to a statement, investments will build on CWT's plans put in place during the pandemic, which include algorithm-driven search applications, follow-the-sun servicing capabilities and an improved digital hotel booking experience.
