At a previous job we wrote documentation that was also sent overseas -- we alternated "they" with "users" and "researchers" and kept it very formal and impersonal. Perhaps nouns that generically describe your IT personnel could be substituted for the pronoun at times. Too many pronouns might be hard for an ESL audience to parse, even if it's grammatically correct English.
