How to manage multiple application (patches, updates, etc.)

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I am looking for a way for me to manage/update several of the applications we use in our office(s). I am a Windows domain with Windows 7 & Vista workstations. All of the workstations have the following applications:

- Word Perfect
- Adobe Acrobat Standard 9.4.1
- Microsoft Office 2007 & 2010

I have WSUS set up to manage all of the Windows updates Microsoft pushes out but I am not pleased with it. If I can find a way to replace it I will. I am looking for a way, from a central standpoint, I can download for example an update for Adobe one time then push it out to all of my clients. I've looked at Desktop Central but don't see a way for it to manage any of the Windows updates...can someone recomend an application that will do what I need? I have googled for the last few weeks & can't seem to find anything..any suggestions?
