Robert Deignan is the CEO and co-founder of ATS Services, a business entity that aids consumers globally with technological issues. ATS Digital Services helps customers you with many various concerns, of a technological nature.
Robert Deignan was born in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He graduated from Purdue University with an Organizational Leadership degree, on a full scholarship to play football. After playing with the Dolphins and the Jets in the NFL, he moved into business where he co-founded a company called Fanlink. He lives in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area with his wife and son.
The idea for business came from another business for which Deignan used to work. It was an anti-malware company. In trying to install malware, he found that the malware actually prevented the installation of it. Deignan and his associates eventually figured out a way to remotely connect to the computer to help them get rid of the malware. Their method eventually became so effective that they were able to charge a fee for their services. In addition to removing the malware, Deignan’s system actually improved the overall performance and efficiency of the computer.
Robert Deignan says that most of his creative ideas come to him from outdoors, while he is detoxing from technology. From sipping coffee in his backyard to summer trips to places like Costa Rica, Deignan comes up with his best ideas when he is enjoying the wonders of nature.
Deignan feels great about the fact that more users are accessing remote technologies to fix their computer problems instead of calling expensive retailers or hiring strangers to come into their homes. It is time saving and cost efficient to utilize technology from the comfort of their homes.
One piece of advice Deignan would give to his younger self is to not to hire family or close personal friends in his business because often tough business decisions have to be made and this can cause hurt feelings.
Robert Deignan’s parting advice to business owners is that when you are passionate about an idea, verify that it is practical, to increase the chances for its success.
