Im looking for some information on an effective way to track online enquiries/sales generated from first click through to conversion.
We need to measure, organic, paid, direct conversion rates as well as call tracking in away that is effective enough for us to bill clients per enquiry, sale
I've looked into omniture but wondering if there are any cheaper alternatives, or solutions that can e built in house by our development team?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Katie, I would highly recommend Google Analytics to start with because, Omniture is not only expensive but, would require incremental cost to operationalize and a decent % would go for staffing, Most of your questions can be easily answered using GA.

I'd agree with Sushant - you can do a LOT with Google Analytics. It's pretty straightforward to set up, and it's free!
You can also set it to send out automatic reports - both in pretty PDF format, or raw data in excel for accounts etc.

There's a great series of blog posts on this site by Nikki Rae, Fresh Egg, on how to do call tracking using Google Anaytics.
