What is a royal warrant?

Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales. Warrants have always been regarded as demonstrating excellence and quality, and are highly prized.

There are around 800 Royal Warrant Holders representing a huge cross-section of trade and industry. They range from traditional craftspeople to global and multinational firms operating at the cutting edge of technology.

Warrants are granted to named individuals – Grantees – who must personally ensure the Warrant is used correctly. Warrant Holders may display the relevant Royal Arms and the legend ‘By Appointment’ on their products, premises, stationery, vehicles and advertising.

Whatever their size or specialisation Warrant Holders are united by their commitment to the highest standards of service and excellence.

First Option Software Ltd is proud to be a member of The Royal Warrant Holders Association, who represents individuals and firms with Royal Warrants of Appointment.

Matt Clarke, Managing Director, said

I am extremely proud of the effort and commitment shown by the whole team over the last six years.  We see the Royal Warrant as a landmark event in our company history and recognition of our commitment to delivering successful projects.
