BUFFALO, NY & ANCHORAGE, ALASKA -- Synacor Inc. (Nasdaq: SYNC) and GCI today announced that the companies have expanded their partnership. The multiyear agreement includes an upgrade to Synacor’s hosted email platform and deployment of Synacor Advanced Cloud ID to streamline the subscriber login experience on connected TVs and mobile devices. Users will be able to seamlessly access video content across devices without having to repeatedly enter passwords.

Synacor’s Advanced Cloud ID solution simplifies the subscriber TV Everywhere login experience anywhere end users access their services, whether in-home on their Wi-Fi network, on a connected TV or on mobile. GCI users will only have to sign in once on devices to access authenticated TV Everywhere apps. Once a user is signed into one app, any other app on any device, from participating providers will automatically log the user into all other supported apps requiring authentication.

“At GCI, we are constantly working to improve our service and deliver the best experience possible to our customers,” said Heather Handyside, GCI’s director of corporate communications. “Our customers will have a richer and more secure digital experience powered by Synacor’s innovative technology platform.”

“We’re honored to be expanding our partnership with GCI,” said John Kavanagh, Executive Director of Identity Management Solutions at Synacor. “Through our joint efforts, we are delivering a more seamless customer experience deepening GCI’s engagement with its customers.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
