Nope. It's just soaking at different temperatures. No different really than any other temperature.
Now what temperatures to use, what steps to use, and so forth is of course a completely different question as there are a ton of temp ranges that all do different things and different grains may also react differently.

For me, the consideration as to whether or not I'm going to step mash is beer dependent and also how much time do I have for a brew day. Maybe it's just me, but I really like using one for a Kolsch or a Hefe. Like everyone has said, it's so simple and doesn't really complicate the brew day, so why not give it a shot to see what you prefer and whether the extra time is worth it.
The ease of step mashing is one of the things I really like about The Electric Brewery.
