At a previous company, I have had a lousy experience with Pivotal CRM and in fact due to that wanted to totally get away from was a nightmare because they didn't QA anything, it was a mess.  Now I'm being pushed into the same role at a new company even though I just want to code straight in-house applications... but we're looking at other CRM options as a possible option to an in-house ASP app depending on cost.

Any feedback would be --greatly-- appreciated.

    The microsoft CRM (Great Plains) is very nice.  Not many complaints.
