Depending on the nature of the sharing, you might want to look into different things.  If the requirement is for real time sharing (e.g. collaboration tool) then you'll want different things on both server and client side than if it's just shared central data storage.  With a slightly more concrete set of requirements I'm sure you can get plenty of advice.

Find out about distribution requirements to determine the appropriate Apple developer program membership. If this is an internal app for the company only they may want their own Enterprise developer account and they could invite you as the developer to their team.  The main alternative is Apple's B2B apps initiative which you can read about on their developer site - for that you'll need to join up as an iOS developer in your own right and the customer will need to register to purchase B2B apps (but not pay for any membership).  Outside of these options you'd be putting their app on the public app store since 100 devices is the limit for a standard developer account, leaving no room for your test devices or their replacements and additions.

I think the only real option now is the commercial version, which lets you deploy to all platforms at $500/year.
