I have recently come across Pipedrive. Reasonably priced, very intuitive and grows with your organization.
I'm using and would recommend Insightly which is free for up to 3 users. Insightly provides a robust custom fields option. Custom fields are extra data fields you can add to all contact, organization, opportunity and project records to capture additional information when creating and saving those records. You can add up to 10 additional fields per record in either text format, date format, or chosen from a list of options you specify. This is unusual flexibility in a Free product. I also like Insightly because it works well with Google Docs and does social media. Zoho would be my second choice. It has a larger customer base and other products to consider. It also has specific strengths supporting foreign languages.

Ping me directly with any questions. I will steer you straight. firstname.lastname@example.org
I've heard good things about Zoho - http://www.zoho.com/
Try Evernote - it is free, completely customisable and allows you the make mistakes in setting up your data capture, review and task management system i.e. without losing the information you have already input. There are lots of online resources to help too. Or give me a shout... Regards, Graham
Truly depends on your startup and budget. Insightly for Google Apps is a great tool and fits any budget - "free". The fact that you can save, assign and task emails within the inbox is invaluable.
I recommend leadmaster, it is easy to use and has lead management, client management and email marketing functionality all built in.
There are many different apps out there - all depends on your business needs.
My advice - start with small and simple saas software, and then when your business outgrows it, you can look for an bigger, dedicated solution .
I can also recommend using for Google apps - for documents, shared calendars and e-mail
If you have some time, feel free to check out our software http://centriumcrm.com, maybe it will fit your needs.
On the low-cost (even no-cost) + high functionality side of things, many agree that Highrise and ZohoCRM are formidable CRM systems for small businesses. A good article comparing these here: http://www.comparz.com/blog/entry/low-cost-crm-solutions-highrise-vs-zoho-crm
I have just started using a simple online program that is very affordable called fiitfu. I don't really have anything to report yet - but they do have a one month trial.
I agree with Daniel - heck, for some businesses, OUTLOOK can work. Others might need the power of an Infusionsoft.
Can you tell us more about what you're doing and what you hope the CRM will do for you?
You really need to give us more details about your company. What does it do. How does it collect the leads. What is the CRM supposed to do for you. Volume. Growth. Future needs. Etc.
