Just share the contacts out.
As long as all of the sales people are storing their email in their mailbox (ie they can see it through OWA),then all that they have to do is right click on the contacts folder and choose Properties. Set the permissions to allow the manager to have access.
The manager can then open the contacts folder using File, Open, Other User's Folders.

Yea i was thinking of that, and I will suggest it, but I think he will want it to be a central datbase of some sort, so he can sort them all together or search against them all etc..

In that case you are probably looking at public folders.

The only drawbacks with PF is that they aren't available as a contact list in OWA and sync to a handheld is not straightforward.
