Feb 2019, is this worth $79? I would rather pay once than lose the listing if I stop paying Moz, are those the only 2 choices? (there is no free updating anymore)
If we do infogroup and axciom, do we need to do this one too?

If you had your location set up in Moz, and it has already distributed to the data aggregators, then you should be able to cancel and your listings will remain the same. @Phil Rozek did a good post on what happens if you cancel Moz:
Cancelled Moz Local: How Many Listings Still Stand? | LocalVisibilitySystem.com

Localeze will reduce down to a basic listing after the premium listing with Moz expires. This means no description, only one category, and no website URL. BUT, it has probably already distributed to all of its partners with this information already, so it's not a big deal in my opinion.

You can manually claim the free listings on Infogroup and Acxiom to lock the NAP info in.

I would also recommend making sure your offline sources are accurate. I saw a case recently where the business name reverted on Acxiom after the listing went into "unmanaged" mode. This happened because the business name at the phone company was still the old name. Check your records at the phone company, secretary of state, and your utility companies to make sure they have accurate business info.

This business changed names I am wondering if I should request the deletion the incorrectly named listing, and then submit a new listing, or just submit the newly named business. I just found a $20 Neustar Localeze submission with Bright Local, think I might do that one.
