If you are looking for an easy to use solution including CRM, customer care, and billing; you should definitely try out CitrusDB. CitrusDB is a Web based customer care and billing solution that uses PHP and a database backend to keep track of customer information, operational CRM, services, products, billing invoices and credit cards, and support information. I find it very suitable for small and medium companies.
CitrusDB
CitrusDB require PHP 5.0.4 or greater with register_globals turned off in your php.ini, any database supported by ADOdb (MySQL, Oracle, MsSQL, ODBC…). I did not tested security of the application, but there are some recommendation in the website to keep your server secure : in a private LAN with firewall, SSL protected web server with access limited to trusted IP addresses, or A Virtual Private Network or Intranet.
