When a struggling shop in the Channel 4 series Mary Portas: Secret Shopper required a more modern way of monitoring stock and sales, Epos Now provided the solution. The Norwich firm’s cloud-based point-of-sale systems are used by more than 30,000 businesses ranging from shops to hotels and bars. Former bar owner Jacyn Heavens, 34, started the company in 2011 after becoming frustrated with existing technologies for monitoring stock and sales. Last year’s opening of an American office in Florida helped it to boost sales to £13.9m this year. The business is investing £10.5m in an expansion plan under which it will create 150 jobs.
