Company Statement

cloudBuy provides comprehensive eBusiness solutions to organisations of all sizes from newly formed companies to major corporations and public sector bodies.

The company's flagship suites Company Formations, eBusiness Solutions and Spend Analysis Solutions offer customers compelling value propositions.


Company Formations

cloudBuy provides their company formation division, @UK PLC Company Registration, with cloudBuy's SiteGenerator eCommerce engine for their startup clients. Having formed over 275,000 companies to date puts the division as one of the leading UK online company formation agents. This has enabled cloudBuy to continue upgrading and innovating the eCommerce features and functionalities.


E-Business Solutions

An integrated suite of applications for any organisation that can be used in all business stages from setting up a website and selling online through to an entire online ordering process that includes payment, invoicing, delivery and support. cloudBuy's central aim is to make online purchasing as simple and cost effective as possible by using cloudBuy proven SiteGenerator software to provide a central database of customers, suppliers, catalogues and websites.


e-Business solutions are leading edge products in the following areas:

  • eCommerce (B2B and B2C)
  • eProcurement
  • eMarketplace


These solutions can also be fully integrated into the major Financial Management Systems such as SAP and Oracle.


cloudBuy can take a startup company on the full journey from incorporation to becoming a full online site with efficient sales and procurement processes, and robust systems to cope with high growth. For established organisations cloudBuy provides the opportunity to sell online to all market sectors from consumers and small businesses to large corporations and public sector organisations. They can also buy from established suppliers on the cloudBuy eMarketplace with the flexibility to have all their own suppliers to join.


Using eCommerce, eProcurement and eMarketplace as a total eBusiness solution is a significant advantage over competitive niche systems that focus on one of those three elements. Currently no other supplier has a product that covers these three areas.


Spend Analysis

A comprehensive set of products and services which can code, classify and enrich purchasing data for large organisations. The streamlined process highlights seven key areas of potential efficiencies and data can be viewed and sorted through an online web based application. The spend analysis solution can include coding via the subsidiary company Coding International and is delivered through the product name SpendInsightTM.


cloudBuy developed, sells and delivers the SiteGenerator software application directly in the UK. SiteGenerator powers the eCommerce, eProcurement, eMarketplace and spend analysis systems.



The cloudBuy Group will focus on collaboration with a range of Strategic Partners across the UK and around the world to deliver eBusiness and Spend Analysis solutions to different markets and to deliver successful customer projects.


cloudBuy has the commercial, technical and consulting expertise to help select and implement eBusiness solutions and software. Channel sales partners will specialise in taking the solutions to market.


Company Values

Team Values

A commitment to innovation, teamwork and professionalism, cloudBuy team members are focused on exceeding customer expectations and empowered to make decisions.



A continued focus on the Green Agenda remains central to cloudBuy's agenda this year.

cloudBuy was a founder signatory to the BASDA Green Charter and aims to help its customers achieve measurable reductions in carbon emissions.

Current Operations

Business Model


7 ways that cloudBuy receives repeat renewable income:


  • Identifies savings and sustainability using SpendInsight and GreenInsight (one off or annual fee).
  • Customers realise the savings using the eCommerce marketplace (annual fee).
  • Suppliers can trade with paying buyers free of charge and then pay to be on the public marketplace. 
  • Suppliers that pay generally have 10 times as many sales vs. equivalent free suppliers.
  • Suppliers pay for ecommerce sites and Product Carbon Footprints (annual fees)
  • Start ups create ecommerce sites (annual fee)
  • cloudBuy creates start ups (one off fee) and provides associated services (annual fees)


cloudBuy delivers all its services through a single cloud based platform.


cloudBuy takes its services to market through collaborations with major organisations:


  1. Barclays Bank and Barclaycard
  2. NHS Shared Business Services
  3. Serco
  4. Visa and its member banks like Barclaycard


SpendInsight Business Model

SpendInsight automatically delivers a complete analysis for an organisation of everything purchased down to individual item level.


SpendInsight is offered with a money back guarantee since it is guaranteed to find savings along with the business case to make the changes including purchasing the ecommerce marketplace to deliver the savings.


GreenInsight Business Model

GreenInsight automatically analyses everything that an organisation purchases along with the environmental impact of all the purchases.


This provides a powerfull tool for change since looking at purchasing from an environmental view point generally results in 10x greater savings than a pure financial analysis.


eMarketplace Business Model

The ecommerce marketplace delivers the savings for both buyers and suppliers. 


Legacy marketplaces (old and out of date marketplaces) are unable to support standard ecommerce functionality like correct pricing and delivery charges.  This means that 60% of invoices missmatch causing substantial work for both buyers and suppliers along with cost increases for both.


The cloudBuy ecommerce marketplace delivers the savings identified by SpendInsight and GreenInsight in a manner that improves supplier profitablity so that both buyers and suppliers benefit from the results.


eCommerce Business Model

Offering you the chance to seize the new opportunities

Already over 1 million logins on the cloudBuy marketplace


Whatever type of goods and services you sell, it will be almost impossible to survive in future without a proper trading website. Whether your principal customers are other businesses, the public sector or consumers the share of their purchasing that is conducted online is rising fast.


Being able to trade from a suitable eCommerce platform will not just safeguard your current turnover, it offers you the chance to seize the new opportunities being created every day, as prospects look for a suitable online supplier.


  • The way that goods and services are selected and paid-for online is also changing fast, so it is even more important that the type of trading website you choose is suitable.
  • Does it allow you to reach all three types of customer, and especially the eProcurement marketplaces now favoured by corporate and the public sector?   
  • Can it handle Requests For Quotes and show your special contract prices where needed? 
  • Can you achieve not just sales but also prompt payment via a reliable method? Can you add your own branding onto an attractive site with lots of user-friendly features?


Creating a website via cloudBuy is unique in the range of benefits it offers. cloudBuy has over 15 years of experience creating websites for suppliers trading with the public sector, other businesses and consumers. There are already over 1 million logins on the cloudBuy marketplace and users are increasing all the time.
