Which plan should you choose?

The best plan for you will depend on your specific needs. Consider the following factors when choosing a plan:

Budget: Yearly plans offer the biggest discount, but they require a larger upfront investment. Monthly plans are more expensive in the long run, but they require a smaller upfront investment. Flexible plans are the most expensive, but they offer the most flexibility.

Flexibility: Flexible plans allow you to add and remove users at any time. Monthly and yearly plans require a one-year commitment.

User count: If your user count is expected to fluctuate significantly, a flexible plan may be a better option for you. If your user count is stable, a monthly or yearly plan may be a better option for you.
