Sprout AI has patented technology that leverages Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) for claims assessment and AI model training.

The investment from Amadeus and Praetura will be used to build this by further leveraging Generative AI within Sprout’s Claim Extraction module, extending the existing self-service capabilities for model training, and process automation. 

There is a huge market potential in the global claims software sector, and with the team’s commitment to innovation and exceptional service, they are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the growing demand for their services, says David Foreman, Managing Director of Praetura Ventures.

The investment comes as the global claims processing software market is projected to reach $73 billion by 2030, growing at a rate of 8.3% per year from 2021 to 2030.
