PDF Merge and reduce size (Alternative to Acrobat)

Some of my users need access to software that will merge numerous files into a pdf and reduce the overall filesize whilst at it... just like Acrobat does.

However, as a business I can't justify spending the £100's on Acrobat software for this one small feature.

Are there any cheap alternatives (even free?)

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

PDF Creator, Cute PDF and Primo PDF all create PDF's. We don't need a PDF creator.

PDFSam isn't incredibly user friendly.
The software is to be used in a corporate environment.

Hmm okay. We have used Foxit products before and they are user friendly. Foxit Organiser isn't free but might do what you are after:

"allows you to split and merge PDF files, re-arrange pages, organize bookmarks, add annotations and create links."

Lovely, user-friendly software.
Shame the file size doesn't "compact" though
