At Gearset, our mission has always been to set the standard in Salesforce DevOps by building a deep understanding of our users, then solving their problems with a team of smart, pragmatic and focused people we love to spend time with.
As a team founded by software engineers with a track record of working very closely with our users, we noticed early on that the incumbent companies in this market had a very different model to the one we’re used to. They tended to sell from the top down, working with CIOs and senior management to broker deals, often involving bespoke, per-customer pricing, and required customisations and consultations. We wanted to take a different approach - to talk directly to the hundreds of thousands of Salesforce developers and administrators across the globe who had DevOps problems to solve every day.
When a developer working on a tight deadline hits an issue and goes searching for a solution, we want Gearset to be discoverable, easy to use, and capable of solving the problem then and there. We don’t want that developer to have to get in touch with us, sit through a demo, negotiate pricing, and wait for us to provision an instance - for some of our competitors, this process can take days! So, we’re transparent: our pricing is set out on our website with no hidden charges. And we’re easy to do business with: anybody can try Gearset in just a couple of clicks with a free 30-day trial, without having to talk to us first or give us payment information.
