The Parent Company

Plus4Pi LLC helps clients see their future and secure it without growing pains, using an empirically validated methodology for strategic innovation.

20 years of technology and product development convinced Ripi Singh that traditional practices such as 6-sigma and lean are backward looking that stifle innovation. Learnings from all these years have been integrated in a novel methodology called +4π addressing the need for a more holistic and forward looking tool-kit.

This +4π methodology is now the power behind the SaaS application EinFrame.

Ripi personally coaches the management team to deploy EinFrame. To learn more about Ripi's coaching practice, visit www.inspiringnext.com

R&D Manager, Power Business

I would like to draw special attention to a new friend of ASNT, Ripudaman Singh. In his first year as a volunteer, he has held the vice chair position of an important ad-hoc committee, organized a dozen sessions at ASNT spring conference in Denver, played a key role in a technical focus issue of Materials Evaluation on NDT Reliability, was guest speaker at two local sections and revived his own section. Kudos to you, Ripi, for all you have done for the members in Texas and in general."
