Does anyone have something that will allow the below step #4 ?

 1. currently a library has 20 Window 10 Pro PCs
 2. every night a software like one of the below software packages are run to REFRESH the PC back to the original IMAGE
         ** https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/customize/enterprise/unified-write-filter
         ** https://horizondatasys.com/reboot-restore-rx-pro/
         ** https://centuriontech.com/enterprise/
 3. about four times a year I manually update each of the 20 Window 10 Pro PCs with a new version
     of special locally installed LIBRARY software / etc that is not already on WSUS, Ninite, etc
 4. instead of doing the above #3 I would like to just update ONE PC,
     having the image easily CLONED to the other PCs
         ** I am willing to have everything on a HyperV VM on each PC if needed
