Tractable AI raises $65M in Series E funding led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2 – investment to power next-generation AI for instant visual assessments within the automotive and property ecosystems

July 18, 2023| 3 min. read
  • Tractable raises $65M Series E round led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2, with participation from existing investors Insight Partners and Georgian
  • Tractable’s AI automates the insurance claims and damage assessment process, enabling real-time condition assessment and accurate repair estimates based on images captured via smartphone
  • Working with leading P&C insurers, automotive and property companies, this investment will accelerate Tractable’s expansion across the auto and property ecosystems to apply AI to cars and homes that need to be repaired, protected, recycled or sold

NEW YORKJuly 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Tractable, a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) using computer vision to assess the condition of cars and homes, today announces a $65M Series E investment led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2. Existing investors Insight Partners and Georgian participated in the round. As part of the transaction, Nahoko Hoshino, Investment Director for SoftBank Investment Advisers will join the Tractable board.

Today’s investment represents the latest milestone in Tractable’s growth journey. The company recently brought on Venkat Sathyamurthy as Chief Product Officer (formerly head of platform at Adobe), Mohan Mahadevan as Chief Science Officer (formerly computer vision lead at Amazon) and Andrew Shimek as President to oversee global operations and sales. Tractable will use the new funds to accelerate its research and development capabilities, creating new features that power the end-user experience to provide instant, comprehensive and integrated vehicle assessments.

Despite significant growth forecasted for the global insurance market, which is anticipated to generate $4.3 trillion in premiums by 20401, the insurance claims process remains largely manual, time-consuming and costly for both insurers and policyholders. To mitigate these challenges so claims are settled with higher accuracy and greater efficiency, Tractable is digitizing the full claims journey through visual AI assessment.

Trained on millions of data points, Tractable’s AI reviews user-submitted photos of cars and homes captured via smartphone and recommends decisions based on damage severity. Any time a driver needs the condition of their vehicle appraised, Tractable’s AI provides a frictionless process that’s up to 10x faster. The company also uses its AI solutions in the auto collision sector to accelerate repairs and salvage vehicle parts for reuse and resale.

Last year, Tractable expanded the application of its technology to assess the condition of homes to accelerate recovery after property damage occurs.

Since its Series D funding round in July 2021, Tractable has continued to grow its product offerings and secure global industry-leading customers, working with top P&C insurers, including American Family Insurance and Aviva, as well as leading automotive companies in recycling, repair and retail. The company now processes more than $7 billion in annualized auto and home repairs and acquisitions, more than doubling the volume of claims processed by Tractable compared to one year ago.

Alex Dalyac, CEO and co-founder of Tractable, said: “Tractable’s AI has helped millions recover faster from accidents and natural disasters. In SoftBank we have a partner who understands the full application set of our technology at a granular level, combined deep networks within the insurtech, automotive and property sectors. I’m excited by what we can achieve in redefining trust and transparency to support people in managing the life cycles of their cars and homes.”

Nahoko Hoshino, Investment Director, for SoftBank Investment Advisers, said: “We are excited to work with Alex, Razvan and team, who have been the forerunners of applying AI computer vision to bring efficiency into the insurance claims management process via applying AI computer vision. As strong believers in AI technology, we see huge potential for the technology to scale globally, embedding AI adoption into other verticals through exploring new use cases. Tractable already has strong traction in auto, whereas property is the exciting new opportunity that is ripe for disruption.”
