We have received a bulk order of Dell Inspiron 3521 notebooks installed with windows 8.
I am looking for an application to clone the HDD to an image of one completed setup with all required software and then load that image onto all the other laptops for each of distribution.

What software can I use that is compatible for Windows 8?

I like the EaseUS Todo Backup.  They have a free one that can be used and pay for ones if you need the extra utilities or don't fall under their agreement for the free one.

i would also recommend Acronis as kadafitcd mentioned
You can create a rescue disk  to deploy the image and the process does not take long
there are lots of options like image restore or cloning the harddisk
you can purchase the premium version with universal restore
which enables you to deploy image of one machine to any other machine available with totally different hardware specs

Highly recommend and reliable
follow lots of tutorials explaining the process on youtube

All good suggestions. I ended up using Paragon Backup and Restore.
Worked exactly how I needed it to.
