Vue Cloud

After entering a pitching process involving several other competing web agencies, Web Engineer was selected by enterprise client VUEcloud, to develop a secure private video hosting service and a multi-user management system.

This system was developed to enable VUEcloud’s wide network of commercial vehicle fleet operators and insurance companies to upload and share CCTV and vehicle camera footage in secure and streamlined way. Due to the nature of the material this system had to meet the highest standards of information security, with end to end encryption housed on a dedicated private cloud.


Our role in the project was to architect the software and systems and to design and implement a usable interface encompassing account analytics and performance dashboards that claims administrators, bus and lorry depot staff, law specialists and even emergency authorities could easily use via secure entry points.

VUEcloud’s market share has expanded massively since the introduction of the management system, fortunately with our support the code based infrastructure has grown with the company’s expansion. At present, the VUEcloud system securely hosts hundreds of thousands of video files to over 10,000 users on multiple individual private customers on a scalable platform.


Web Engineer is proud to have worked with PenCarrie for nearly 20 years and were the first enterprise customer we took on, right back when Web Engineer’s founder (Craig) was running the business out of his bedroom and PenCarrie was a significantly smaller operation. Fast forward to 2018 and PenCarrie now command the position of one of the UK’s largest corporate clothing distributors.

Much of the companies progressive growth has been down to the system infrastructure which Web Engineer developed; from consulting on improvements to internal systems, through to managing customer accounts, warehouse stock, and ordering online, even moving from the traditional printed brochure to a fully searchable and customisable web-based brochure interface. We have supported PenCarrie throughout their IT development helping them grow to a business of over £60 million annual turnover.


Insurastore is the UK’s largest dedicated self-storage insurers. Web-Engineer were first approached to build this business solution to a given design and broad requirement. This site has grown since it’s launch back in 2007, we’ve updated the design, and refined the business logic many times. We have also monitored, maintained and supported the site installation for the client and have successfully helped Insurastore grow the business to where it is today.

Our approach to the build of this site has been a significant contributor to the site’s success. Building a site is much more than just writing code, it’s about understanding how this code functions in the real world and about refining and improving this over time. There are several ways we look at the build which collectively focus on ensuring the best possible user experience.

A secure approach

We take security at Web-Engineer quite seriously, to us its part of our ethos and less of a box-ticking exercise. When we look after a site or application belonging to a customer, we make sure it's managed securely and supported. Our security procedures and policies follow industry best practices, adhering to the standards of ISO27001. As a data processor to our clients, we are of course fully compliant with the GDPR.

Plus as our client, we share every update and amend through our project tracker, helping you gain a clear picture that your project is in hand. 

Programming skills and tools

We're not tied to one product or approach, we know in reality that software and applications are written in many different ways. Often it's key for projects for systems to work with the systems you have, interface to them and get them talking to each other. That's why our team have the knowledge and experience of working in a variety of different languages, tools and frameworks, plus we're always open to learning a few more.

Digital marketing intelligence

Elsewhere we have the marketing experience and credentials to support clients with their analytics and digital advertising needs. We offer insight and guidance on customer behaviour and user experience, developing solutions that optimise user journey and make you applications favoured by your customers. Through our Google certified AdWords, Analytics and UX experts, we can prove that our knowledge and experience covers how your customers interact with the applications we build for you.

A commitment to research

Today, more than ever the web never stands still, and that's why every team member is encouraged to spend a significant amount of time on research and development. We constantly research new technologies, emerging trends on consumer behaviour and the latest development techniques to ensure that the team are on point and engaged with the medium within which we work. For example, we built our own private cloud to fully grasp and understand the technology, so we could offer it to our clients. This project along with many other discoveries help keep our output fresh and the team engaged in the exciting world of web design and development. Visit our blog to learn about our latest discoveries.

1. Understanding a businesses needs and IT pains

Every business is different, each using and interacting with IT in their own unique ways. Some may see IT as a burden or must have to remain competitive in their markets, others may already have aspirations to grow and progress using technology that will help them stand out. Our role as a Managed Service Provider (MSP for short) is to understand your business, its employees and your customer's specific needs. We do this by mapping your current business processes, identifying where IT can provide a solution to the problems you face. This could be as straight forward as managing your site and e-commerce platform, or monitoring your servers and streamlining your file management. As an outsider to your business, our role is to quickly recognise a problem and offer solutions that stimulate growth for you.

2. Technological expertise

Today, technology moves faster than ever, and for the time short business owner it comes as no surprise that keeping up with the latest innovations and integrations in IT seems an impossible task. What's more, the IT landscape is a mind field of proprietary packages channelling your IT systems down restrictive and costly paths that may not offer the best solution for your needs. At Web Engineer, it's our job to stay impartial and up to date with today's technological state of play. Considering our experience in developing our own cloud system we can confidently say cloud computing is a specialism of ours. We have the experience in implementing and managing cloud systems that are providing real cost saving and efficiency benefits to businesses.

3. Protecting a business through security

Data theft and hacking is a threat that affects every organisation today; with customer data being an increasingly valued commodity on the black market it's no surprise that managing and preventing these increasingly sophisticated attacks takes expertise and knowledge. Seeking this skill in-house requires investment in staff training and having the right infrastructure to keep your important assets safe in the first place. An MSP that has expertise in security will be able to protect and back up your systems to keep customer data safe and keep your online processes running smoothly.

4. knowledge sharing - tips and solutions

What may seem to an expert as common knowledge can be a real headache for your team and a potential barrier in your processes. Therefore a good MSP should always share their knowledge to help your team gain confidence using the systems and software they manage. Over the years of working with our key clients, we have not only helped establish and manage their sites and systems, but we have also educated their staff to use and interact with our solutions in the easiest way.

5. Collaboration

In business, you know that the most successful projects and stable long term relationships are founded on a close collaboration between client and supplier. An effective relationship between you and your MSP should feel like their team of experts are an extension of your own. For us, collaboration with your team is the most valued asset we offer to clients. It allows for fast and agile development of new products and releases, with a first hand and human approach that gives you a feeling of ownership, while having our experts handle the complexities.

6. Cost

One of the most important benefits to any business is the cost savings an MSP can provide. Hiring an IT person in a small business of a dozen or so employees just isn't practical. As businesses grow in size the resource needs for specialists in systems architecture increases, and so does the salary; the average salary for a cloud systems manager is over £50,000. Outsourcing technical roles like this to an MSP could give you huge potential cost savings, calling upon these resources for just the projects that really matter. And while your routine maintenance, system operation and IT infrastructure are being looked after by your MSP you can spend more time and resource on developing your business elsewhere.
