Keeping Outlook, iPhone, iPad mail, contacts, calendars in sync

I'm looking for the best way (currently) of keeping my Contacts and Calendars in sync (like I have my emails in sync).
My email service is
Outlook 2013
iPhone 5s
iPad Air

I have heard of CompanionLink. But looking for something more 'native' (see iCloud, Exchange mentioned).

Please point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Is your email an exchange account or  pop?

IMAP it says on my Outlook 2013 Account Settings.

Okay, so not exchange.  Devices other than desktops user activesync to keep up to date.  This can be changed in your preferences to determine how often it polls the server for updates.  Exchange is only an peon if you have an exchange account, not pop or imap. While exchange will keep calendars and contacts updated for exchange accounts,  you can use something like Google calendar across all devices. Contacts can be synced with Google as well,  but I don't believe that is cross device. Take a look at sugarsync?
