wirelessly sync iphone 6 with outlook calendar and contacts


We are looking for a little clarity here.....

Currently we use a google apps for business email address ( @domain ) w/ office 365 (Outlook (imap)) on our PC's along with iphones. The goal is to stop syncing the calendar and contacts with a USB cable via iTunes and to have those items sync wirelessly through the cloud. At the moment some users have a jumble of methods, non of them truly adequate.

We've looked at all sorts of paths.... outlook.com aliases,  gmail calendar, 3rd party apps and it's getting a bit confusing.  

Simplicity and stability are the goals and we'd like to hear from the experts on a good, easy to implement solution along with the instructions for set up.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

We use exchange and have all out iPhones sync all items in outlook over their wireless connection to the domain.  You should be able to do the same with Google.

Thank you but exchange (EAS) is not an option for us unless we can configure it through google apps for business somehow.

Are you running Office 365 and Google Apps, or just using Outlook with Google Apps via IMAP.

If you put Google Apps Sync for MS Office on your desktops (Windows), you will sync Email, Calendar, and Contacts between the desktops and Google Apps.  From there, you can sync Email/Calendar/Contacts to your mobile devices by using either the Gmail settings (or Exchange settings) on the phones.
