Introduction to UiPath Insights
There is a phrase for business intelligence and analytics "What's well measured gets well managed."
The first thing companies want quantitative indicators and how RPA impacts their business because ROI (Return on investment) is one of the most important aspects of digital transformation.
So how do you optimize the ROI of the entire automation program?
- By connecting to mission and vision, users can synchronize their organization's needs with plans to achieve effective and efficient planning.
- Understand which automation journeys and activities need to be prioritized based on the organization's priorities, and create processes to support those automation efforts.
- We will strive for continuous improvement that requires measurement. Extract as much information as possible and then make decisions accordingly.
UiPath Insights and UiPath Automation Hub are two great features that help you maximize the ROI of your automation program. Its dashboard help to measure, track, and manage the performance of the entire automation program.

What is UiPath Insights?
Insights is a web application that acts as a platform for data modeling and analysis, using a combination of available business indicators and operational insights. Users can use pre-installed dashboard templates and custom dashboards to visualize the company's data across the required metrics to gain new analytical insights, track performance indicators, and alert when an error occurs.
How does Insights work?
UiPath Insights work in 3 steps:
Track: Use a library of dashboard templates, Processes, Queues, Robots, and Business ROI.
Measure: Calculate the business impact of automation, including money and time saved.
Report: Share results quickly with team members and key stakeholders across companies with self-service and RPA reporting.

Types of metrics to measure in UiPath Insights
has two metrics to measure: Operational and Business related KPIs. Let's see their differences:
These metrics focus more on the development and technical side of the implementation itself, execution of RPA implementation related, and are likely more helpful to the analysts, developers, and other technical leads.
These metrics focus on the high-level outcome of the implementation, aimed to scale and grow RPA in the organization, and are likely more appealing to the leadership members in your RPA Center of Excellence(CoE) team.
Dashboard in Clear View
In UiPath Insights, interactive dashboards are provided to do more than visualize the success rate of RPA. To address the business and operational perspective of the RPA success rate, there are four different types of built-in dashboards available in UiPath Insights- Robots, Processes Dashboard, Queues, and Business ROI. Let's see their uses one by one :
- Robots: Robot dashboards track the bot's productivity, utilization, and errors. This dashboard benefits non-technical team members by providing a high-level performance overview. Robot dashboards also track the daily working hours for attended and unattended bots.
- Processes Dashboard: The processes dashboard highlights metrics such as the success rate of your processes, their run time, and details on the errors encountered.
- Queues: The Queues dashboard focuses on the most valuable insights related to failed and successful transactions. It also breaks down the specific transaction dates, the exceptions affecting these transactions, and the average duration.
- Business ROI: The Business ROI dashboard provides insights into the actual impact generated by your robotic workforce within the business. It achieves this by tracking the time and money saved by your automation deployment. The "money saved per process" section breaks down these financial impacts in detail and by category.
