About Navdeep Reddy

Navdeep Reddy is Co-Founder & Chief Information Officer at Enplug

Question: Tell us something about your professional journey and what keeps you motivated at your current organization?

Navdeep Ready: I always had an affinity for start-ups – not the traditional Silicon Valley stories; but the individuals and groups who would ‘do it for its own sake’ – ranging from organizations like the GNU Project to “scene” groups. I had a chance to interact with many organizations doing freelance work, and also had the opportunity to be a part of a ‘traditional’ corporate structure. I got to see firsthand the systemic issues that can arise from different types of structure, and resolved to be in an environment that would actively respond to such problems.

Our team is relentlessly driven to create the best possible solution. ESR once said "…the most dangerous enemy of a better solution is an existing codebase that is just good enough." We take this to heart, and have a mission to innovate for innovations sake. The reason why we are able to this is because everyone at Enplug loves what they do, and love working with the people around them. Without the fun, there would be no [good] product, without the product there would be no profit, and without the profit there would be no scale (and no legacy). We’re on track for all three.

Question: What new or upgraded product or service has your company recently introduced to the market?

Navdeep Ready: We’re excited to announce a new partnership with ViewSonic, a leading global provider of visual solution products including displays. With our new ViewSonic display partnership, Enplug’s digital signage software will come pre-installed on ViewSonic’s Smart Signage displays.
