This is especially useful during implementation as it allows you to complete most of the work on the implementation in a sandbox, and then copy the sandbox into a production environment for cutover. This could save hours in a project budget and also eliminate many duplicate efforts when it comes to recreating personalized screens, installing apps, and various other setup items.
