Businessman Robert Deignan has started a couple of businesses during his time. He is now in the tech industry and is one of the co-founders of ATS Digital Services, a company that helps people by remotely fixing their computers. He was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and enjoyed playing football throughout high school. He was able to earn a full football scholarship and was a student at Purdue University. He has a degree in organizational leadership and when he graduated he played in the NFL in both 1997 and 1998, playing for the Miami Dolphins and NY Jets.
He started his first company at the conclusion of his football career. He was one of the founders of Fanlink Inc. He also started working at an anti-malware firm. He says that while he was there this company’s customers started having issues getting his firm’s software installed on their computers. As it turns out the people creating malware were preventing anti-malware software from being installed. To solve this problem they made sure their customers had their phone number so they could call if there was a problem.
Robert Deignan says this led to his company offering to get the software installed remotely for their customers. The customers were happy and it led to him and his business partners coming up with the idea of a new company which would remote into peoples computers so they could fix various issues and leave behind an optimized system. This idea was the genesis of his company ATS Digital Services. He has been the chief executive officer of this company for the past seven years.
He says that many home users of computers are starting to like that a technician can remotely fix their systems. Robert Deignan says that people see their computers getting slower but don’t know how to fix the issue themselves. He says his company offers a great alternative to taking your computer into some big box store to have it fixed. He says if anybody is uncomfortable with the service they are able to instantly sever the remote connection the technician has established.
