Running a Application on a remote PC

I have a created an application that will check the a PC for the memory and report the findings to a SQL DB. My question and forgive me if this is one of those duh questions :), but I need to be able to kick this off remotely at differnet times across the hundreds of PC that need this done on. I thought of running it on a login script but that wouldn't allow me the flexiblity on when i would like to run it. Any help would be great with this or pointing me in the right direction. If there is code that can get this done that is out there feel free to point me in that direction.

Thanks,

This option worked great for me but the other also worked too.
