A Digital Space for Tenants and Landlords


A collaborative reinvention of RTB's digital presence

Within Ireland, the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) stands as a key information source offering pivotal services and operation procedures. Kooba, entwined in a longstanding digital partnership, worked with RTB to take their website to the next level. Given our extensive knowledge of the site, we took key findings from a sitewide UX audit to pave the path toward new design rollouts including: Information Architecture, New User Flows, Accessible Design and all key Modules. *Kooba's responsibilities are limited to the design and development of the public facing website. Any matters pertaining to the my accounts portal, payment portal and login access are not within our purview.

It was important for the site to take steps toward a more intuitive and accessible digital realm for tenants and landlords alike.
