    I think Group Policy is a poor choice here:

    – Group Policy would not work if computers are not on local network (e.g. remote laptops).

    – Group Policy does not provide any feedback – was installation successful or not

    – Group Policy requires that all computers should be in Active Directory domain

    There are plenty of products on the market, but make sure you are choosing a cloud-based product. If you do not, you most likely will be able to uninstall software only on the computers connected to local network (and what about remote laptops?).

    Few options I would recommend:

    1. action1.com – they have free edition and provide pretty good endpoint configuration reporting in addition to software deployment functionality.

    2. pdq.com – they provide a lot of features in regards to software deployment, but they are not cloud and the user interface seems little bit overloaded.

    3. quest.com – their offering is pretty solid and they do it for many-many years – I would name them an established leader, but might be too costly.
