Subscription Cancellation Services

Airpaper Completes the Dreaded Task of Cancelling Cable for $5

— October 6, 2015 — Unique
There really are services providers for every chore these days, whether it be grocery shopping, laundromat retrieval or even cable subscription cancellation. Getting on the phone with a Comcast representative is never enjoyable; they have employees who are specifically trained on how to keep customers on the phone and rope them back into unwanted "deals." However, 'Airpaper' exists specifically to make this dreaded phone on your behalf, for the worthwhile cost of just $5.

In order to do this, Airpaper needs your name, phone number, address and account number -- if all of that is in order then your cable subscription cancellation will be completed in a jiffy. While it promises not to use this personal information for any other reason, it's possible this may be a risky exchange. However, depending on how precious your time (and sanity) is, the risk could be worth avoiding that awful phone call.
Trend Themes
1. Subscriptions Cancellation Services - There's an opportunity to provide businesses that will help customers unsubscribe from any unwanted subscriptions in a convenient and hassle-free manner.
2. Automated Customer Service Agents - Developing automated agents that handle customer interactions such as cancelling subscriptions would be beneficial for both businesses and their customers, optimizing efficiency and reducing waiting times.
3. Privacy Protection Services - As more personal data is collected by third-party service providers, there's a growing demand for businesses that can protect sensitive personal information and ensure that it's not used for any other reason than the one initially agreed upon.
Industry Implications
1. Telecommunications - Telecom companies can leverage subscription cancellation services to make the cancellation of their service less unpleasant, retain customers, and reduce costs related to customer service.
2. Subscription Services - For subscription-based businesses, offering customers an easier way to cancel subscriptions can increase customer satisfaction and loyalty in the long term.
3. Data Security - Data security companies can provide services to individuals and businesses alike to ensure their personal data is protected, reducing the risks of identity theft and fraud associated with personal information exposure.
