I either create a custom logfile per software after the installation on 
a network share or I check the installed version against a named version 
and e.g. write a message to a file on the network share with this 

Of course, this is only manageable as I only have a fistfull of nodes. 
For a larger number the report mentioned by Stefan might become interesting.
