Silicon Reef deliver expert SharePoint and Microsoft change that helps your workforce strike an effective balance between work, life and play

A trusted, expert SharePoint and Microsoft Office365 partner agency, we help clients increase their productivity through effective use of the best technology. By focusing on strategy, development, process and enablement, we partner with medium-sized to Blue Chip organisations to transform their businesses for the good.

It is our mission to support companies in their transition to an employee empowered working culture, where technical solutions crafted around your team and culture enable people to work in environments and a timeframe that suits them. The result? A more dedicated, productive and happier workforce, and a better bottom line.

Engaged, Empowered, Effective: The SharePoint Business At Work

Built on a deep understanding of the Microsoft Stack, we are proud to have created a fluid, empowered, network of talented individuals, all pulling towards a common goal.

Silicon Reef was formed by five talented friends, all experts in creating SharePoint solutions for big business, and with expertise ranging from project management through to design and development.

Inspired by the solutions we were developing, we wanted to build careers around the flexibility that SharePoint provides, and to offer businesses and the people that work for them the opportunity to do the same.

Nearly a decade later Silicon Reef boasts an impressive pedigree of brand-name clients, and first class solutions delivering tangible results. We are proud of what we have achieved for our clients, but we are just as proud of the platform and culture we have built for our own people.

We believe in enabling a balance for our workforce between work and life, but understand that means something different for every individual, and are privileged to have built a team of talented friends who work across the UK. They have their own working hours, they have their own ways of managing tasks but all are working towards the same goal: to deliver excellent, sustainable, people-led solutions for our clients.

Collectively we are dedicated to crafting technology that empowers people within their workplace: to make the most of their tools, maximize their time and promote a work life balance.
