San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

Rentobo, an online rental management platform designed specifically for rental owners and managers with fewer than 20 units, today announced they have selected leading global information services company Experian for all tenant credit reporting.

“Experian® enabled us to create an online rental application process that is unprecedentedly simple for both applicants and managers to use, while still offering the protection of professional grade tenant screening,” said James Shkolnik, CEO of Rentobo. “With just a few clicks, an owner can create a free Rentobo account and immediately begin accepting online rental applications with credit, criminal and eviction reports. This is the solution small-scale owners and managers have been waiting for, and it would not have been possible with any other credit data provider.”

Although nearly two-thirds of all US rentals are independently owned and self-managed, most existing real estate software is not viable for owners with just a handful of units. Rentobo is the only rental management software to offer free comprehensive renter screening to small-scale landlords. In addition to Experian credit reports, Rentobo searches national 3rd-party criminal and eviction databases to identify applicants who are undesirable despite a strong credit rating.

“Experian is pleased to be working with Rentobo to assist property owners and managers in making informed rental decisions easily and securely,” said David Proctor, vice president of marketing, Experian. “Rentobo’s focus on convenience and simplicity combined with Experian’s best-in-class data, easy-to-read reports and dual-party authentication make it a great choice for small-scale rental owners and managers.”

Rentobo also offers free rental marketing tools for landlords and property managers. Users simply enter their property listing information and choose from more than a dozen leading real estate and social media sites on which their properties can be showcased.
