    depending on how powerful you want this software to be there are a couple options I have used. I first started with filemaker pro (its a database software that allows contact management as well as being VERY flexible). I then moved on to something called Sugarcrm. Its a freeware (free) software that offers contact relations management (hence crm). This program is awesome, though you install it on the backbone of your webserver, so its usable by any computer (with password of course). You can also have different users, track sales, phone calls, leads, all kindsa stuff. Comes in very useful. Unfortunately niether software is simple off the shelf install and go. Filemaker Pro is close to that, but still would take a day or so to understand the basics. SugarCRM is a bit complicated to get initially set up unless you know computers fairly well. Though for the price of free, you really cant beat it!-MF
