    If you were here in the UK I would be recommending working with OpenCRM, connected to Twinfield, connected to your Virtuemart (although we might try and talk you in to switching on cost grounds – integrating yours will cost vs OpenCRM’s integral e-commerce function for “free”). The company behind OpenCRM are used to doing this kind of integration at really competitive prices. However, the thing that confuses me is your budget. Do you have an integration and set-up budget in mind along with the $100 a month? If you haven’t, I don’t think you’ll be able to find a solution.

    @david – yes there is budget for integration. we use virtuemart within joomla – would be happy to switch from vm but whatever we use needs to work within our existing website framework
