Looking to sync public folder contacts with users contacts

Hello,

we have an Exchange 2007 environment with users running Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007.  All of our company contacts are in a public folder for everyone to view, but obviously only the public folder gets updated and our clients (300) never get updated unless they copy/paste themselves.

We are looking for an enterprise solution for syncing contacts only, we dont need a huge CRM suite or anything, just contacts.  

What kids of options do we have?

Thanks!

Mike

Hi

There are quite a few links to tools to do just that on this page:  http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/sync-mail.asp

Of the choices on that page, have only used one myself:  http://www.infoware.ca/content/infoframe.htm?tcon.asp   No complaints on it, functional, a bit ugly interface wise, though.  Was around 50 USD per user, but only used for marketing staff, so overall investment was small.

you can set the Public Folder Contacts as an address book in Outlook.  That way staff can select addressee direct and you can set which users/groups can update the PF.
