1. You could select one person who is good with Office to do the final review and touchup before the publication is released. This means no new software, no new training, and because the skill set is Office, it is easy for someone else to step in.

2. You could buy DTP software, and this will give you more control over the document. But you will also need to train two people (one as backup) in how to use it. They will still need to double-check things. And the company will have to commit to supporting this. Too often I see someone add DTP software, and a year later the one person who understands it has promoted and the whole project falls apart.
