If you have a large number of users, then you would typically have a domain controller to manage the users and permissions (I use WinNT4 SBS).
The Synology, like most NASes, support the users and groups from the domain, so there is very little to setup on the NAS. The domain users and groups automatically show up on the Synology, so you simply need to select the appropriate ones when you create the shares. I have no local groups and only one local user (Admin) on my Synology.
