Robert Deignan is a cofounder and the current CEO of ATS Digital Services, LLC. Deignan says that the vast majority of his good ideas come to him when he is not at the office. However, he says he needs to be in the office at his desk and at his computer to really flesh it out. He will first sit down to work out the numbers to see if it is even a possible thing. His number one recommendation for entrepreneurs is to always flesh out their ideas on paper in this manner. He also needs to be here so he can really discuss it with his partners who each often have additional ideas to make it even better.

When they have an idea finalized, they will separate to work on various parts of it by themselves. In everything involving business Deignan has always gone with his gut and this strategy has never worked against him. But this was not something that came naturally. Listening to his gut feeling was something he had to practice. Very early in his career, there were times he made business decisions his gut revolted against, and his gut ended up being right. ATS, a remote digital services company has definitely entered the market at the right time.

Studies have shown that more and more people are accepting remote technology than ever before. People are growing to love the idea that you can have a repair person fix your computer remotely instead of having to come to your home and fix it. And that is only in the best case scenario. Most of the time you will have to take in your computer to the place yourself. This is a waste of your precious time now that remote services are now a possibility. And with ATS the customer is always in control since if for any reason they don’t feel comfortable they can stop the remote session.
