What Was The Inspiration For ATS Digital
I worked once at a company named Anti-Malware Software and we had many complications with the installation of our software on the machines of our customers. We learned later that the very issues we were fighting, Malware, was successfully blocking our attempts to install our software. We came up with the solution of having our tech experts remove the malware and install our product from remote locations. When my partners and I decided to move on to our next venture, we used this concept as the centerpiece.
What Is A Typical Day Like For Robert Deignan
I awake at about five am and meet a friend at the gym each morning at 5;45. After my workout, I return home and after seeing my wife and son off to work and school at seven or so I enjoy a cup of coffee before driving to work at eight.
My first order of business once at work is to answer emails and tie up any loose ends from the day before. After that, its a crapshoot and no two days are the same.
