AI-as-a-service startup Jaid has raised £3 million in seed funding.

Jaid’s solutions automate a variety of use cases, including client service automation, sales automation, payment exception processing, and claims administration processing. 

It says its technology helps businesses reduce costs, improve efficiency and make data-driven decisions.

Jaid’s focus to date has been on the financial services industry with a strong roster of clients including ClearBank, Syndio, Calastone and Legal & General.

Sure Valley Ventures led the round which will expand its machine learning team, build out business development efforts across America and Europe and expand into Asia. Jaid has bases in London and New York.

It is the second investment from Sure Valley Ventures’ £95m UK Software Fund, which included a cornerstone £50m investment from the British Business Bank through its Enterprise Capital Funds programme.
