LINGA, the all-in-one cloud-based restaurant operating system(rOS) provider has entered into a partnership with Evertec, one of the Caribbean and Latin America’s largest payment processing providers, to focus on improving payment acceptance speed, technology, and revenues for the Puerto Rican and Latin American Markets.
