I scan the neg into photoshop then click on the negative option to convert
the image to a positive.
I use it the way I used to use an initial contact print.
Except now, I have it quicker. It also allows me to "play" a bit. I can
vary the contrast, etc. Do a cursory dodge or burn to get some idea of
what I eventually want to see in the final print. It also allows me to
"play" with cropping very quickly.
Sometimes I will play with the hue / saturation to see how the image may
look as a cyanotype, etc.
It is far from a perfect alternative, but I find it helpful. Nothing that
can't be done in the darkroom in a more traditional manner.
