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.

That's what I found... was hoping for a better option but will give that a try
Using the IMAP sensor is your best bet in PRTG.  There's a how-to guide here.here.
