We have a new client who has around 5000 company contacts and they wish to have all these contacts available to all of the 16 staff on their mac outlook, and their iphones.
They are currently with office 365 but have had a bad experience so we are looking to move them to hosted exchange.
From my experience using on premise exchange servers we can implement a solution like http://www.codetwo.com/exchange-folder-sync/
which synchronises 1 users contacts with as many users as you wish.
But with the general hosted exchange you dont get access to run 3rd party software on these hosted exchanges setups.
Is there another way we can do this and have all contacts accessible to all?
i feeling like a CRM that will integrate with iphone, outlook for windows and outlook for mac might be the best solution
