Are there any free tools which could scan a sample of devices based on device name or IP address that would be able to produce a report of all installed software and software versions? there are tools like WINAUDIT to do this on a machine by machine basis, e.g. RDP on, copy the executable run the report and take it away, but I need to do this across over 150 devices.

Belarc Adviser is good at this. Not free but not expensive. You should take a look at it.

You could use Spiceworks. While I personally haven't used it, there is also Open-AudIT

Just to add that WINAudit can be configured to write to a database and then you deploy it via GPO etc.
Then when it executes it writes to a central database.
