blackberry and exchange server 2010 sync

I'm using Exchange 2010 and have a handful of blackberry users with personal bb accounts that want to sync wirelessly with Exchange for calendar and contacts.

I dont want to install BES express as there is only a handful of users. I've been looking at 'notifysync' for blackberry which says it will do what I'm looking for.

Does anyone have any experience with this product or can you recommend another tried and trusted solution?

many thanks

Before we installed BES we used BlackBerry Internet Services and configured access through the provider's (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) BlackBerry site. This works very well, but does not give you the near instant synchronization that BES does. All users with data access should have BIS access already.

Hope this helps...

Ooops... No it doesn't. We had to use desktop sync for that using BlackBerry Desktop. Sorry for the slip.

Here is a list of providers and their config pages for BIS.

Ok thanks. I was trying to give people the option to not use the bb desktop software to sync but allow them to wirelessly sync.

The solution re 'notifysync' seems to look ok but I was curious to knkow if anyone has had any experience with it before I give it a try?
