Id like a crm... with a built in website scraper... that I could set to auto collect+port to contacts-etc... any emails, names, etc... on the target website... for example....I´m going to be paying a guy to scrape this site for me... http://www.usacycling.org/clubs/

I could set up a default list of things to scrape, or change it as desired. Other things to scrape and add to the contact record might include rss feed, twitter account+feed, facebook page, etc... of the target site.

With this capability, I could easily create records for potential leads, etc.... in a ¨one-click¨ fashion as I surf potential customers websites, or directories, etc.

There are web-scraping tools such as Broadlook's Diver and Profiler that can be used.
Diver: http://www.broadlook...products/diver/ (keyword based)
Profiler: http://www.broadlook...ducts/profiler/ (URL based. With your example, of www.usacycling.org/clubs/, you would use Profiler to scrape the entire URL)

These can be integrated with Zurmo so that once you scrape the content you want, you can port into the Leads/Contacts module. This would be a nice solution.
