If the system updates are downloadable .msi or .exe files, you can use PDQ Deploy by Admin Arsenal. The free version should suffice.

The only Lenovo way I know how to do this is to install and run System Update to a schedule on each machine. You may wish to hide some updates as not all Lenovo software should be installed. Password control, ReachIt and ShareIt should not be installed in my opinion.

The .exe can be downloaded and installed via command line:

So, it should be able to work with PDQ Deploy

Some exe files are common across machines and OS, some are unique, some vary. It is a bit of a dog's breakfast which is why Software Update has been provided, so use care getting the correct files.
