There are several Dropbox type solutions ... you install the relevan app on the iPads and on your desktop .. put the relevant files in a shared folder and it will sync to all the iPads that have access to that shared folder.

Dropbox -https://www.dropbox.com
Google Drive - https://drive.google.com
SkyDrive - https://skydrive.live.com
SugarSync - https://www.sugarsync.com
box.com - https://www.box.com

There are lots of other providers but these are amongst the most popular.

There are other factors to consider ... how much storage space will you require .. Dropbox offer 2Gb per account .. and others offer more but the offerings change so you need to check to see what is on offer at present.  Most offer between 2 and 5gb for free and pay for more space.


Security .. if the documents are highly sensitive commercially you might want to use a more controlled system like
Synplicity - http://www.syncplicity.com/
Cubby - https://www.cubby.com/
SpiderOak - https://spideroak.com/
Dropbox for Business - https://www.dropbox.com/business


Personally I like Dropbox for ease of use and SugarSync for its more flexible folder and file sharing abilities.  Both have good OSX clients and integrate well with other iOS apps in terms of sharing and viewing files.

Hello.

Do you have Sharepoint deployed in the office?

If so, you coudl configure this for access with the advantage of the user only having to know their standard log on.

If you need more help with  this, let me know.
