Default WINDOWS UPDATE - Where did all the network installs go?

I know about the MS Geniune Advantage Program. However where did all the next work installs go?

Like surely, you don't expect a network admin going around to about 100+ computers, and clicking Windows Update and the sitting through the MS Geniune Advantage Program every single time for every computer on his next work.

Like there is the network admins time.
There is also the issue of used bandwidth.

So where do the network admins go for Windows Xp Updates?
