About Content and Code
Content and Code was formed in 2001 with the goal of becoming the world’s most trusted Microsoft partner. Everyone in the company, led by founder Tim Wallis, was focused on the business being the best Microsoft partner, and directly aligning their values with Microsoft’s, by gaining a deep understanding of Office 365 and SharePoint.
Content and Code clients chose them for their extensive knowledge and expertise in providing professional and managed Microsoft support services, which meant they could get the very best from their Microsoft products and investment.
Content and Code values
As a business, Content and Code established three main brand values (or pledges), in order to cultivate strong relationships with everyone it did business with, including their employees.
- Client pledge: ‘We partner with our clients to realise measurable benefits from their Microsoft investment and transform their business.’
- Microsoft pledge: ‘To be the most trusted Microsoft partner.’
- Staff pledge: ‘Earn, learn and have fun with the best technology consultancy in the UK.’
Most awarded Microsoft Partner
These pledges and the relationships Content and Code developed with their clients and Microsoft positioned the company as an industry leader, and helped them achieve their goal of becoming a trusted Microsoft partner.
In fact, the business quickly became one of the most awarded and well respected partners in the UK, with multiple Microsoft Gold Partner accreditations and ‘Worldwide Partner of the Year’ awards; a legacy continued by Content+Cloud, as one of just 25 elite Microsoft partners in the world, and with three Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) on board as well.
Becoming part of the IT Lab Group
These pledges and the relationships Content and Code developed with their clients and Microsoft
IT Lab was formed in 2000 with a vision of differentiating the IT managed services market through quality and commitment. Their aim was to run on a culture of ‘Service Obsession’, offering IT support, consultancy and managed cloud services.
When Content and Code became part of the IT Lab group in late 2018, it brought with it their extensive knowledge of Office 365 products and SharePoint, enabling the group to deliver a full portfolio of professional and managed services extending to Microsoft 365, Azure and Dynamics 365.
The Content+Cloud family
In the summer of 2020, the IT Lab group rebranded as Content+Cloud, bringing Content and Code along with it.
The Content+Cloud group also brings together a number of leading technology services providers under one umbrella:
- Content and Code, our Microsoft 365-focused professional and managed services business
- Perspective Risk, our independently operated cybersecurity and penetration testing centre of excellence
- Mirus, our centre of excellence for managed IT and print services serving small and medium-sized businesses
- Sol-Tec, the market leader in Azure migration services to the public and private sectors
- Sipcom, our unified communications and collaboration platform
- Fresh, our innovative intranet solution that builds on the power of Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Viva.
In 2021, Content+Cloud celebrated one year as one organisation with #WeAreOne.
