Do you have access it an INTRAnet site where you work? Do you have a network location where you can store files that everyone has access to?

OK. What format are you SOP documents in currently: paper, Word docs, other formats?

What you can do is put all the SOPs in PDF format. Then create an appropriate SOP library on your Intranet and place the documents there.

If there are specific SOPs for different aspects of your working environment (i.e. Sales, Marketing, IT, etc.), create sub-directories. If there are SOPs that apply to the entire organization, then create a separate sub-directory for those as well.

Once that is done, inform everyone concerned that you have created an Intranet library for your SOP documents and explain the structure...

Thanks for the suggestion PaulS, however I am in need of an application that will simplify the creation of SOPs. Something like ROBOHelp or NextDocs

NextDocs seems to be a document management system and ROBOHelp generates Windows Help documentation from existing documents...

From my understanding from your last comment, I would go more for Workflow Diagram app.
