What do you like best?
Evite makes it pretty easy to monitor responses to an invitation. It has a decent selection of invitations to choose from and best of all, it is free to use.
What do you dislike?
It has become too bogged down by ads and additional emails trying to encourage additional involvement. -- I didn't want to send the thank you notes for that event the first two times you offered it to me, thanks. -- It's also started to appear in junk mail folders, which is concerning when we want to make sure that everyone receives their invitation. There are better, prettier alternatives, which have nicer features, that I have been turned onto, though.
Recommendations to others considering the product
It works well enough, but there are better options that are still free of charge.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Occasionally, we host events for local administrators, alumni, and for our students' diploma ceremonies at the end of each year. Evite is a simple way to share an invitation with students and have them share with whom they would like to invite. It's also easier than sending paper invitations, and saves trees. People are more likely to RSVP in a timely fashion and you can send messages to your guests as needed.
