"By expanding customer interaction options to include mobile devices, our subscribers gain direct access to their account and the ability to communicate with us in a manner that meets their preferences and fits their busy schedules."

MediacomConnect is powered by SmartCare a cloud based product of the Synchronoss Mobile Content Management Platform.

"Service providers are quickly realizing the value of adding a mobile self-service application as a way to improve customer relationships," said Biju Nair, Executive Vice President, Product Management & Chief Strategy Officer at Synchronoss. "SmartCare is truly designed to improve customer satisfaction with advanced features, such as call back, that lets customers schedule a specific time to receive a call back from the customer care agent. With the adoption of SmartCare, Mediacom will enhance the customer experience by providing its subscribers with an application that utilizes the rich capabilities of the smartphone and gain access to the answers they need, when and how they want them."
