Why this change is needed?

Our product keeps growing steadily in term of: new features, platform (both Joomla + WordPress), complexity and user base across the world. In order to maintain high quality product and service and improve it further, we need to increase investing into our staff by hiring the best possible developers and designers as well as improving our infrastructure. We have a lot of idea for implementation and our user requested feature list is also increasing which need more resources to make them come true.

Despite this pricing change, Solidres still has the most cost effective pricing in our market.
