Updating Map Services

I am running a replica file geodatabase from SQL Server Express 2008 R2. The replica is the source for my Map Services.

Currently, when I update the SDE Geodatabase, then synchronize changes to the distributed geodatabase (the replica); I need to open each MXD associated each service and "overwrite existing service" in order for the changes in the geodatabase to be shown in my Map Viewer (Flex). This can be time consuming as I running 20 MXDs. It can take up to 5 minutes, sometimes longer, to overwrite each existing service.

Is there a way to have the data shown in the Map Viewer automatically updated each time changes are pushed into the replica?
