Entrepreneur Robert Deignan is one of the co-founders of ATS Digital Services. He co-founded this company in August 2011 and has served in the position of chief executive officer ever since. His company is a digital software service provider that helps people deal with problems such as a bad network connection or slow computers.
He is a graduate of Purdue University and has a bachelor of science degree in business management. He co-founded his first company, Fanlink Inc., in July 1998. Since that time he also worked for iS3 for nine years where he was the executive vice president.
Robert Deignan recently shared information about how and why people should create a healthier relationship with the technology they use practically every day. He says that technology has transformed companies and households in ways that could never have been imagined twenty years ago.
He says that even ATS Digital Services has been transformed by technology over the years since it was established. They now have much more sophisticated remote troubleshooting abilities than they did nine years ago and work with a much broader range of devices. They also use technology to improve the experience people have accessing and working with their customer support team.
There are downsides to technology, though, as Robert Deignan points out. People stare at square screens entirely too much including their computer screens and mobile devices. Too much of this is very unhealthy.
Robert Deignan says that using more than one screen at a time is too much of a distraction. People think they can multitask but everybody would be much better off focusing on just one screen and task at a time. workers shifted their attention to something different every three minutes back in 2004 and now that is down to 59.5 seconds.
He says that technology, for the most part, has been designed to be addicting. App developers, advertisers, and media sites want people to be actively engaged with their content as much as possible. He says that people need to take control of this relationship with technology and limit the amount of time they interact with their devices each day to something reasonable.
