A tech company has received royal recognition with a national award for enterprise.

Epos Now was founded five years ago, providing till equipment and cloud-based software mainly to the SME market. It has since ballooned into a £25m-turnover company with 250 staff – including 50 in America – and more than 40,000 customers in 106 countries.

In recognition of its phenomenal growth the firm was awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category in 2016.

Recognising excellence among British businesses, the awards are announced annually on the monarch's birthday, April 21.

Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk Richard Jewson visited Epos Now's headquarters in Norwich on Wednesday to present the award to the company's founder and chief executive, Jacyn Heavens.
