Assuming you have a domain - use a restricted group to give them local admin rights

You can do that in computer management by connecting it remotely to each computer.

You can try with launching a script  for each PC which will place specific domain user on theit PCs
Here is example:

1st you need command line with administrator privileges:
In run paste this

runas /user:%DOMAINNAME%\Administrator cmd

and then type your password (account can be any from the Administrators group):

then simply tipe

NET LOCALGROUP administrators %DOMAINNAME%\%user account% /ADD

if you want to remove them you can replace /add with /delete
replace %DOMAINNAME% with your domain name and %user account% with the username of the user which need to be local administrator.

hope that will help you to catch you goals

If you don't have your list of machines, to get a list of machines use either

DSQUERY COMPUTER > Machines.txt

or to get machines on now (only accurate to about 15 minutes)

NET VIEW
obviously machines that are off don't run programs.
For another domain or workgroup use NET VIEW /domain:domainname
To keep the list do
NET VIEW >> Machines.txt

Use this as a source to create your batch files

Now using multiple batch files
create one LIST2INVOKE.CMD
:: Invoke authentication and group membership change on remote machine
FOR %F IN (Machine1 Machine2 ...) DO CHANGEGROUP.CMD
FOR %F IN (MachineN MachineM ...) DO CHANGEGROUP.CMD
...

your list of machines will need to be broken up into shorter lists to stay within the 255 character command line limit.

now in CHANGEGROUP.CMD
:: Create a scheduled task on remote machines to change group membership
NET USE \\%1\IPC$ /username:domain\admin password
AT \\%1 12:34 NET LOCALGROUP administrators %DOMAINNAME%\%user account% /ADD
