We've received some great feedback on the pricing and have made some
substantial changes to the rates. While we were initially thinking of
larger enterprises in mind, it seems more smaller companies would be
interested in options as well. So, we've lowered the prices of the plans.
Once again, if these support options are of any interest to you, please
fill out the form linked in the original e-mail so we can get a better idea
of everyone's needs and what to focus on.
