salesforce lead conversion

This application allows user to search leads based on a keyword and giving fields to search in. User can then go to details page of returned leads, can select multiple leads and then can convert selected leads by providing an account name.  The Outcome will be an account, a contact for each lead and an opportunity for each lead. After successful conversion user will be redirected to newly created account’s detail page.
