QubicaAMF and Evite Make It Easier Than Ever for Bowlers to Gather Their Friends for a Bowling Party

No more tree cutting and forgetting the exact number of the bowling party guests, thanks to the new partnership between Evite and QubicaAMF.

QubicaAMF is proud to announce a partnership with Evite, the leading online invitation and social planning website.  Under the partnership, Evite offers custom invitations for themed bowling parties that coordinate with six environments from QubicaAMFs Automatic Scoring System, the Bowler Entrainment System (BES). Three of the themed invitations, Oceano, Fairy Tales and Prehistorica, are designed specifically around QubicaAMFs Themed Birthday Party Program.
The QubicaAMF Themed Birthday Party Program is a turnkey marketing program that features exciting on-lane birthday themes, complete take-home fun boxes for kids, a variety of electronic templates customizable to the bowling center, a website showcase, complete in-center training by a dedicated Marketing Specialist and more to make the birthday party unforgettable. Now with the Evite invitations, designed exclusively around QubicaAMFs BES environments and Themed Birthday Party Marketing Program, the guest list for any party at any bowling center is much easier to manage with no expense and no wasted paper, saving a few trees along the way.
“We’ve made planning a party much easier for the customer” says Rosa Katz QubicaAMF Senior Product Manager. “The center will benefit by being able to offer their customers a one of a kind birthday party that is the ultimate in convenience and fun!  It’s a win for everyone and we are excited to be leading the way in improving the customer experience in the bowling center.”
Dottie San Martin, General Manager of University Bowl in San Antonio, Texas states, “QubicaAMF custom invitations from Evite are going to be a huge hit.  Our customers are always sharing with us that getting their guests to RSVP is the most frustrating part of having a party.  Now RSVPs are a click away and guests can even respond via their smart phone.   Our customers are really excited about how easy it is to send out invitations and how quickly they are getting their RSVPs back.   I’m so happy that QubicaAMF is always thinking of our customer!”
Using Evite is easy and fun. The bowling center customer can choose from six exclusive QubicaAMF designs to find the one that best expresses the type bowling event. Guest replies are received via email and can also be tracked on any iPhone with the free Evite App guaranteeing an accurate headcount. Furthermore, Evite invitations can be personalized by adding questions for guests to answer relating to their bowling shoe size or food preferences. Guests, invited to the bowling party with Evite, will stay engage in the party planning process and sharing their comments and feedback.
