I have been experimenting with a Business Relationship Management application called Daylite to replace the aging copy of Now Contact that I have been using for business contacts. Address Book has been fine so far for personal contacts but if all goes well, I’ll probably convert the whole enchilada to Daylite in 2005. A colleague pointed out a really cool feature: you can run a server and sync the database against it and then take it with you.
What makes Daylite cool is that in addition to tracking Contacts and Calendar events (like a PIM) you can also track Opportunities and Projects:

DayLite goes beyond contacts and appointments to include project management and introduce a powerful concept, opportunities. Opportunities offer a simple way to track details, helping you “close the deal” on new business. DayLite’s projects provide you with the perfect tool to stay focused on the big picture, while maintaining control over all small details. Appointments, activities, and contacts can be linked to both projects and opportunities. Simplicity and power – all in one neat package.
