(a) It is always a hassle to visit at&t website & check my account information. it is a huge problem for me as I used to forget my password (even now i do not remember my password)
(b) I lost my cell phone & gone with the wind was my valuable contact information.
(c) Remembering the bill date is not my cup of tea. I set up reminders in I-cal, on my mobile, i also have a post-it on my desktop.
So, I wanted a genie to help me organize my life. But as I am not Alladin I had to think of something else. So here it is… A widget for my desktop. I am sure all of you will realize how handy this could be.
A desktop widget by at&t (can be developed by any network provider) that enables you to sync your cellphone account from the at&t website to this widget. This widget effortlessly keeps you updated about your minute / data usage. My widget will come equipped with “Live Chat”, “Phone book” & “Payment Reminder”.
(a) Live Chat: at&t make their customer service right at your desktop!
(b) Phone book: Allows you to sync your contact list directly into this widget!
(c) Payment reminder: Option to set payment reminders
Benefits to the customers:
(a) Live Chat: Hassle free clarification of my doubts.
(b) Phone book: Safeguards valuable information from loss or damage.
(c) Payment reminder: keeps your mind (& may be credit history) fit & fine.
I believe this widget is a novel idea & creates a win-win situation for both subscribers & the company (in this case at&t). For people who share my problems will love this widget, people who don’t will still appreciate this. There are thousands widgets developed everyday, but widgets that really adds value & help me make my life more organized stay on my desktop.
This widget can be used by any network provider & expect to gain positive reviews on their commitment towards making lives of their subscribers simple. This small widget also increase the brand exposure as the widget remains on their subscriber’s desktop. To satisfy a marketer to invest in this widget, let me share that this widget can also be used as a potential platform to source out ‘promotional messages’ directly on the widget (but, pleaseee without intruding our privacy. Otherwise you will destroy the whole purpose of this widget).
Disclaimer: Over the years my innovative nature has come up with hundreds of ideas, but this is the first time I have actually spend some time & executed this. It would be great if you can leave your valuable comment on this post.
