You can use PowerShell to create one or more scripts to obtain the information that you need. With the Get-WMiObject Cmdlet you can get all the hardware information you need.

For Example:

Get installed software - Invoke-Command -cn wfe0, wfe1 -ScriptBlock {Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\* | select DisplayName, Publisher, InstallDate }

Get IP Address information -
