Hmmm...not sure it's the best, but I use QB's Customer Manager
It's a little more user friendly then say ACT (which I've also used)
It's a little more limited too if you go in deep, but ACTs harder to figure out and use so it's a trade-off

QBCM plays well with both QB and Outlook

New version of Office small business has a really nice business contact database in it now, worth looking into if you use outlook. I think it meshes with QB too, not sure I do not use QB.

It does NOT work with Quickbooks... Microsoft has Small Business Accounting Software that is almost identical to QB... Currently the MS software will not do the things that QB Premier will do like inventory...

No one using open source tools? There are alternatives to MS products which I think are way overpriced. There are too many to list here but I use open office, and gnu-cash to name a few.

Both are free as in they cost no money and they are free as in the code is open to peer review.

Couple that with the fact my business runs off of computers that were going to be thrown out .. (all p3's) running linux. Total cost is my time... :)
