Evite unveils SMS feature enabling 100+ million users to send digital invitations via text message

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Evite, the world's leading digital platform for bringing people together, today announced it is the first major digital invitation service to incorporate SMS technology, allowing its 100+ million users to send text message invitations. Hosts can invite all guests at once via text or email and get their invitations seen sooner -- while still utilizing the tracking benefits Evite is known for, including confirmation that invitations are received and opened.

"Evite is pleased to announce full text-based support online and through our mobile apps, making it more convenient and less time-consuming for hosts to invite guests," said Victor Cho, CEO of Evite. "Text messages typically have a 98% open rate, meaning invitations will be seen sooner. We are excited to announce this important evolution to Evite just in time for Halloween and holiday events."

To text invitations through Evite:

    1. Download the Evite app for Android or iOS
    2. Choose and customize an invitation
    3. Select one or multiple guests from phone contacts and send

This feature can also be accessed via desktop or mobile web by typing phone numbers on the "Add Guests" step.

Text invitations appear as a thumbnail linking out to the full event details in a browser or the app.

"This popularly-requested feature solves two big problems our customers have voiced: some guests prefer email while others prefer text, and many hosts do not actually have the emails for their guests," added Cho. "We look forward to enabling more face-to-face connections, through this feature."
