centrally monitor Windows Server Backup

I am looking for a good way to centrally monitor Windows Server Backup that is running on multiple servers, mostly 2012 R2 but a few 2008 R2.

The servers are located all over the world and are connected by VPN to the central site

Windows Server Backup is initiated by a scheduled task which runs a power shell script

Right now backup status is sent by email along with an xml file including job details and results

I am looking for a better way to get a quick overview of the status of backups at all these sites.  We already have PRTG installed but do not see an easy way to do it with PRTG.

Using the IMAP sensor is your best bet in PRTG.  There's a how-to guide here.here.
