When should we start considering Error Handling Software for React in our App. Let's say we have a start-up of 50

Question related more to the usability of the error tracking software. From what I see the sentry.io that Guil is using is a paid software. Most of the businesses out there are trying to build apps on the open-source solutions (discussion on the topic whether that's fair is for another time :)). When should a business start considering having error tracking software like sentry.io and are there maybe better, open-source solutions?

I'm new here and relearning a lot I have forgotten but I'll take a stab at it. Each software package will have some kind of error logging for a given application so it would seem to me that using an out-of-the-box error monitoring system would make the most sense when transactions in a workflow may not be easily matched. For example, ensuring every purchase order transaction gets an invoice transaction. Those two transactions could be created and maintained in two separate systems and knowing when transactions are orphaned could provide valuable business benefit.
