We are an IT company and we constantly get asked to install new software on computers. We are looking for a way to automate the sofware install process. We want something that will let us choose which software to install and not run without any interaction.

I would recommendt that you take a look at Micrsoft's System Center, specifically Configuration Manager (SCCM). It is an enterprise product that not only allows you to deploy software, but automate the deployment of Windows updates, hotfixes, service packs, etc... In addition, SCCM provides native remote control tools, software and hardware inventory managment, software metering, are more features.

So if I understand you correctly, you need to automate the installation of software that requires a lot of steps for it to be installed.

Its been a while, but many years ago, I had a similar situation and what I used was a free tool called autoitscript. You can search for it and try it out. One of the reasons why I used it was because the software I was trying to automate the installation for had no auto install features and it required different selections and configurations to be made during the installation. What I liked about autoitscript was that I was able to send keystrokes to the install program, exactly as a user would do. Not sure if it would be of use to you, but I just thought of that.
