If users are familiar with LaTeX/TeX then definitely try service.  For decent size of the documents it is 
free and if you need some extra project security then service has almost 
everything you need in paid version.  I have very positive experience 
with it so really recommend it to try.  I am not sure if they have an 
open source version you may install in your premises but you may ask for it.
