Obtain Microsoft VLSC software installation report

We would like to get detailed reports about our software licenses from the Microsoft Volume Service Center (VLSC) website to find out how many times particular operating systems and software such as Microsoft Office 2016 have been installed.

If possible we would like to know the dates the software was installed/activated, the external IP address of the computers the software was installed on, the computer names of where the software was installed, the computer domain names, etc.

This is because we believe that persons with access to our Microsoft VLSC have installed the software on computers where it shouldn't be installed.

How can such reports be run or can this information be obtained?

How are the devices getting their keys.  I use KMS for both OS and Office 2010.  
From the KMS side you need to run a report from the KMS server.

If you goto the VLCS page and click on  Downloads and Key > Export all Keys : CSV this will give you all the keys that have been activated. This will only give you a count of license that have been used.
