If you choose to use ROBOCOPY, make sure that you use the /MIR option to make sure that it cleans up deleted templates as well as copying updated ones. You may need to have a few copy steps in your process. One step should copy any "generic" templates. A second step should copy any business unit/department specific templates. Finally, a third step to cleanup any templates that should not be shown to the current user. If you prefer, you can also use file system permissions to control what templates individuals can see/use, but then whatever distribution method you use will need to support running tasks as a user other than the logged in user.
