It will give you a good idea of areas of your mix you need to focus on.

You can also use the assistant and track match something you like and it will adjust your track to match (bit hit and miss) This will also give you some pointers on areas to focus on for the genre you like.
I agree that Ozone's matching functions can be useful. I have used Ozone in a more primitive sense in the past by finding a mastering preset that, when applied, best matches a reference track, and flicking it on/off periodically during mixing to A/B the two and find a happy middle.
