In many companies I've seen it that more than 1 person are writing at the same documentation (be it user manual or technical documentation) for a computer application.
What I have seen in usage was mostly svn in combination with windows word. This combination never worked out quite well and was quite a hindrance as far as I've seen. Other solutions that functioned better for multiple users used clouds to store the data (example google docs) but that could be a problem with company policies in regards to storing important data externally.
So my question would is, if there are any tools that fullfill the following requirements:
- PDF files are generateable
- Does not use an external cloud for storage but instead can either be used locally OR the company using it can setup their own cloud for it
- There is no large overhead for having multiple users work on the same part of the documentation at the same time (or on different parts in the same file)
