When you need to restore, Gearset has you covered

During Salesforce’s May 2019 service disruption, Gearset proved to be the most important utility in my team's software toolbox. Gearset's functionality was instrumental in getting us up-and-running and providing us with a pathway to recovery after our orgs (Production and all Sandboxes) were negatively impacted. I know I speak for my larger team when I say, thank goodness for Gearset.
