The Birth of ATS Digital Services

ATS Digital Services provides digital support and helps individuals and small business owners from all over the world resolve their technological issues.

Robert Deignan and his partners developed the idea of the business after working in an Anti-Malware Software Company.

The company experienced technical issues with getting their anti-malware software products installed on their customers’ machines. They found a solution in adding a phone number to the download page. Customers were able to call in and explain the issues they were having. The in-house technical support agents would then remotely connect to the customer’s machines and resolve the issue.

The effectiveness of this method led Robert Deignan and his team to explore the idea of using remote connection technologies to fix their customers’ various technological issues.

He believes that the impact will not be nearly as severe as some experts are predicting. While there are indeed a multitude of processes that can and will be be automated in the future, there are several tasks that will still need the human touch in many fields such as health and human services and emergency management. In addition, there will be many people that will simply still prefer interacting with other humans over machines.
