Evite™ Introduced Text Message Invitations, but PurpleSlate Does it Better!

Evite™ Introduced Text Message Invitations, but PurpleSlate Does it Better!

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We like to think that’s true, especially since last week we awoke to news that Evite™ introduced a text invitations feature to their mobile app.

Needless to say, as an e-invite platform, the team at PurpleSlate had to investigate Evite’s™ newest feature…

Bottom Line Up Front

Evite’s™ text messaging feature is actually just an extension of their pre-existing email invitation service. Instead of receiving a text invitation, guests simply receive a text link to the mobile web version of a host’s Evite™ digital invitation.

And that’s not all…

To RSVP, a guest has to either login OR register to record their RSVP. This ADDS another step to the RSVP process than if a guest simply got the Evite™ digital invitation via email.

Simply put, Evite’s™ text message feature is a new feature but the experience is cumbersome for guests, which was actually the impetus for why we began building PurpleSlate in 2015. Check out the snapshots we’ve included in this post to see the differences we’ve discussed.
