Before co-founding and being the CEO of ATS Digital Services in August 2011, Robert Deignan was the Executive President for iS3 from June of 2002 to June 2011. He also graduated from Purdue University in 1995 with a Bachelor’s in Science for Business Management.
Technology has undoubtedly become a central part of many lives in different societies around the world. These advancements have led to vast changes in the medical field and the retail world among many other places. In spite of its beauty, there’s also an ugly side to technology as it consumes people constantly on their phones.
Robert Deignan conceived ATS Digital Services out of the need to help people who have technological issues. With customer service at the center of his focus, him and his staff has helped millions with their tech-related needs. Here he runs off three ways to have a positive experience with technology.
Separating from technology isn’t the idea but being consumed by it can distract and things like social media help with that. However, Robert suggests that this can change through curbing heavy digital connection and being more effective outside of it. This can lead to higher productivity.
Technology persuades our brains to absorb information through a screen. Again, this can prove distracting when constantly checking it for something whether it’s emails, text messages or whatever else grabs our attention. Despite this, Robert says that taking in information through reading, for one, can be better for critical thinking and other things.
Technology is not entirely a consuming experience but smartphones do provide that singular, all-encompassing immersion. Companies rely on consumers to be fully invested in their products for reasonable success. Though Robert Deignan does depend on this for his own success with ATS Digital Services, he does state that using technology in great moderation can be the most beneficial to us.
