The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. has acquired Linga, a point of sale (POS) and payments solutions firm providing a cloud-based restaurant operating system. The acquisition of Linga and its technology will further expand PNC's digital resources and enhance the bank's capabilities.

"This acquisition reflects our continued commitment to expanding our corporate payments capabilities, as well as investing in the solutions and tools our clients need to run their businesses more effectively," says Emma Loftus, executive vice president and head of PNC Treasury Management.

Founded in 2004, Linga developed its restaurant operating system, Linga rOSĀ®, which was the first all-in-one, cloud-based operating system introduced to the marketplace. Over the years, Linga has added new functionalities to its operating system to support the needs of today's business owner, including online ordering, payments, QR code-based menus, and virtual kiosks, among others. The company currently serves clients in 48 countries and will be integrated into PNC's existing digital solutions ecosystem.

"We believe this is an exciting opportunity to continue to grow our business and support our existing channel partners and clients, and to do so with a company that shares our vision of delivering innovative and high-quality solutions," says Onur Haytac, founder and CEO of Linga.
