Business equivalent of Evite?

I am looking for a business equivalent of Evite. Does such a thing exist? Basically, I'm looking for all the functionality of Evite--invitations, maps, ability to customize the invitation, ability to RSVP with comments--but without the gimmicky stuff ("Desperate Housewives" viewing party as an invite category, putting Captain Morgan on your invitations, etc.).

Businesses, by and large, use the calendar functions of MS Outlook / Exchange. Despite all the anti-Microsoft feelings out there, the fact is that Outlook / Exchange conveniently meets 90% of the needs of 90% of users, and is here to stay.

Response by poster: @randomstriker... I understand the rampant use of Outlook invites. However, we are looking for an alternative for a couple of reasons, the most important being that very few of the people we are sending the invitations to do not use Outlook. We want something a little more "inviting" and integrated than the standard "please come to our meeting, e-mail me back your RSVP." There are other issues with Outlook not meeting our needs, but I won't bore you with those details.

@camworld and jrishel, thanks for the sites!

Would Emma work? They've been pushing that pretty hard in ads around Austin, but I don't know anything else about it.

I'll second pingg - their event management features seem pretty impressive although I've only used it for small events. Plus, they have pie charts!
