BUFFALO, NY -- Synacor (NASDAQ: SYNC) today announced several customer wins and renewals for its advanced portal experience, email and collaboration suite, and authentication software platforms in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Windstream renewed its existing portal and advertising relationship with Synacor, extending the relationship between the two companies. Earlier in March 2017, Windstream also tapped Synacor to provide its residential high-speed internet customers with Zimbra, Synacor’s email and collaboration platform, that was ranked a top player by market research firm The Radicati Group.

NorthwesTel and TruVista have chosen to use Synacor’s identity management and authentication platform, Cloud ID, to streamline the subscriber login experience across websites, mobile devices and connected TVs.

“Leading service providers look to Synacor for comprehensive technology solutions that enable them to quickly scale high value, personalized digital experiences,” said Tim Schermerhorn, Senior Vice President, Service Provider Sales & Marketing at Synacor. “With Synacor’s identity management, portal and email software platforms, service providers can offer unrivaled choice and flexibility to their consumers.”

On the enterprise and government front, Synacor added more than 150 new Zimbra Email and Collaboration Suite customers around the world. Q4 wins include the City of Rennes (France), HiWin Technologies Corp. (Taiwan) and Maronda Homes (United States). In addition, the company added nearly 40 channel partners certified to sell Synacor products, growing the existing base to more than 1900 partners worldwide.

“More than 4,000 businesses and governments trust our software platform,” said Marcus Teo, Vice President, Enterprise Sales & Marketing at Synacor. “We will continue to work with our customers and our community to innovate functionality and operations that enable a superior email and collaboration experience.”

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.
