Software that allows printed templates with 'editable areas'

Software solution for designers to create layout templates, and then give to non-technical people to populate with text and images.

I work as the marketing manager for a firm of real estate agents, and I'm trying to solve a specific problem.
I'm a big fan of InDesign and use it to design much of our printed material. However, much of what we print as a company is put together by admin staff using more basic software like MS Publisher.
Unfortunately, they aren't skilled designers and everything ends up looking slightly different (typefaces, alignment, etc).
While I could design some templates in Publisher, it can be quite limiting, and I would like to restrict what changes the users are able to make to the layout.
I'm wondering if there is a good software solution to allow templates to be designed by an admin user, and then another program used to populate the "editable areas" of those templates with text and images.
