    What format are the install files in MSI or EXE? Are there any customizations that need to be done either via command line or gui?

    You could probably script this out to run as a bat file or as an unattended install using PSEXEC to roll it out.

    If the files are MSI format you could use group policy software installations along with a transform for any modifications.
