Thom,
  A CRM can be something as simple as a Rolodex-style card file or a 
module in a fully integrated business system. We have done both. Rev 
works well for either. Simple CRMs are done quite easily and will not 
excessively challenge the skills of most Rev beginners. More 
complicated CRMs are more work, almost "real programming", and require 
more time, effort, commitment, and skill. One of the biggest advantages 
of Rev (and all Xcards) is that you can "work backwards": build the 
interface first, then write the scripts to support that interface - in 
my experience this will take about 1/10 th the time required to build 
it the traditional way. An additional advantage is the modular nature 
of things you build with Rev - it is usually easy to fix bugs, add 
features or enhance the product after it is completed. You can begin 
with something very basic and grow it as you needs and budget 
require/permit.
  To answer your question specifically: this is not only "doable" in 
Rev, Rev is probably the best means of doing it.

  Yes, that would certainly be doable. My guess is that lots of people 
here
  have rolled their own pieces of this kind of solution. But Rev is a 
very
 good choice of a tool to do what you want for sure.
