In your analyze menu you have the following options:
You can use a regional heatmap to summarize and colour your map by region. This can be used to trace performance in each of your territories.
Create radius or drive time buffers which allow you to find points in a specific distance or drive time, this can be used to view your sales, service or market coverage.
