Generally speaking, scale-invariant systems have some properties that remains constant when looking at them either at different length or time scales. Constant quantities allow to predict future behaviour, no surprise that  conserved quantities are fundamental in physics. This invariance is somewhat different though; still it can be used to extract useful information (and at least to get a Nobel prize,  as Kennet Wilson did for the Renormalization Group)
