P2V Scheduled Backups

I'd to schedule my Windows 7 Pro PCs to backup to vmware virtual machines.In the event we can't access our main office, then people can access the VM via VPN.  

I'm looking for something like vcenter converter that will be scheduled and keep snapshots of the most recent backups.

Know of any solutions?

Thank you.

Not sure if you can automate everything though.

... additionally, I've never found anything that can automate the whole migration.

It's almost possible, but not quite to a schedule...

You can use Sync/Replication Mode (but do not finalise), and run the Sync Job Manually to keep in sync.

You can use the AutoIt Script it language to create Scheduled Macro Scripts...
