Best Program or Way to Sync Contacts to Mobile Devices

Trying to find a way to have a public contact database that will sync to mobile phones, (Apple and Android). In the best case, we would keep something local here at the office or in the cloud that we would be able to assign permissions to a couple users to be able to change them while everyone else just has read access. The big catch is I want the users in the field with iPhones and Droids to be able to see this contact list easily but is sperate from they normal local contacts or their exchange contacts. I found something like CiraSync that will let us use public folder contacts and push to the phone but i have never used it before and was wondering how anyone else is doing this.

I use a combination of iCloud, which can be shared on Android with one of the several sync programs on Android, and Google Cloud, which works on both Android and iPhone . At some point, as Apple continues to make it harder and harder to write apps that can get access easily, and work well,  I will switch everything to Google. On Google, we sync calendars contacts, email,  notes and more.

But now I am going to go look at nori's suggestion of NextCloud, because this is the third time I have heard it recommended this week.
