Merchant commerce omnichannel company, Pine Labs, on Monday, announced that it has acquired a proprietary enterprise platform from Bengaluru-based Saluto Wellness Private Limited. This acquisition is said to boost the capabilities of Pine Labs’ Issuing Business under the Qwikcilver brand, which in turn should enable it to strengthen its offerings across employee rewards and recognition, customer loyalty programmes, and channel partner programmes for medium and large enterprises.
