A British financial tech company has bought nearly half of the 20th floor of the Plaza South Tower in downtown Orlando.

Epos Now, which builds point-of-sale systems and software for retail and hospitality businesses, plans to more than double its Central Florida staff of 46 to more than 100 by the end of next year.

The company, which closed on the sale last week, bought 9,000 square feet at 189 S. Orange Ave. for $2.1 million.

Epos Now has more than 5,000 U.S. customers, company officials said.

“Our USA expansion has been a great success," Founder Jacyn Heavens said in a news release. “We are now firmly setting roots and fully investing in Orlando.”

Stirling International Real Estate, which manages more than 120,000 square feet of office space in The Plaza, negotiated the deal on behalf of RSC Plaza Office Condos, which is part of Denver-based Real Capital Solutions. Financing was received through BBVA.

“Smart companies are taking advantage of today’s low mortgage rates and the significant business advantage of owning their own office space,” John Kurtz of Stirling said.
