Possible Tool from HP

I was just assigned a task of determining if our companies servers are up-to-date on all Bios/Firmware and related drivers. There are about 300+ servers involved and I am able to gather the versions currently installed on each system but was wondering if there was a tool available that would pull this information for me. I will be doing this sort of audit every "quarter".

Guess what I am looking for is an easy way to compare what we have installed with the recommended versions and then deploy the necessary updates. I thought I would check here before proceeding.

Any information or direction is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
