What is the best way to distribute corporate templates for new Office documents to users?

 

I already know about the possiblity to use a shared network folder and setting the workgroup templates location in Word. However I was wondering if there is a better way which is more integrated into SharePoint/Office 365. We would prefer to have a central repository in SharePoint/Office 365.

 

Does anyone have experience with OneDrive synced libraries used as template location?

 

(I am not interested in 3rd party solutions. We prefer to use the out-of-the-box functionality of the Office Tools.)

 

Thank you for any input,

Beat.
