    Hey Ted37,

    I might be able to give you a few ideas but I have a few questiosn first: How much are you looking to spend? Also, what type of business do you have?

    I think Sugar CRM is the best in the industry. More features at affordable price.

    I believe this one can be used offline and seems affordable (I've never used it, just found it with a Google search): http://www.c2crm.com/pricing.html

    Oracle Siebel (not Siebel On Demand) is a well known, can be used offline though I'm not sure on the pricing. Just curious, why don't you want cloud based? It has many advantages.

    Thanks ...but the link you send ...of CRM...does not have pre-sales follow up .....moreover ...in my country still Internet is not widely availed all over the region and its up time also remains in doubt......difficult to rely on cloud computing as such..

    Otherwise during network busting or maintenance ...difficult to carry on official work...

    I use Asana for project management and it's absolutely fantastic. They have a CRM upgrade option; I would expect nothing short of brilliance if their project management stuff is anything to go by.

    Any reason why a cloud-based CRM software does not appeal to you?

    Who are you responding to - Ted or scifi? Ted wrote the original post, and I see nothing about cloud-based CRM software. Since he was the OP, and it is actually his thread, can you answer his question? If you are responding to scifi, he already answered your question in a subsequent post.
    When responding to a post, especially in a thread with multiple posts, it is helpful to quote the post you are responding to, so we can follow the conversation. Also, read the thread before responding, so you can avoid asking a question that has already been answered.
