Sync Outlook with Motorola Android?

I have a number of clients that have recently bought the Verizon / Motorola Android phone.  All of them use Outlook with conventional POP email servers.  None are using Exchange.  I know there is a product out there called Google Apps Sync, but it looks like it is just for Exchange users.

Is there any add on third party software that does a good job of syncing Outlook contacts and calendar with the Verizon Android?  Either via USB cable or wireless?
Thanks.

What version of Outlook is being used?
Outlook 2007?

If so, you could just use MS Office Outlook 2007 Mobile Service

Thanks apache09 but from what i can tell, MS Office outlook 2007 mobile service is for just sending the reminders.  This won't fly.  We need a full sync application, just like how Palm and IPhone and Blackberries do.  

I did find some info on a third party program named CompanionLink.  Going to see if that works.

BTW, Verizon and Motorola were both clueless and obviously under the Google spell.

I think this is all part of the Google / Microsoft conflict, cloud computing vs local et al.

For full sync, you will deffinatley need a 3rd party app.
Slipstick is usually a good source for them if CompanionLink doesnt work out.
