Issue we haven't tackled yet but are looking into - getting Nessus agents on remote users' computers reporting into our intranet Nessus system. Might be easy, might not be, haven't looked into it yet, but it's on our 2016 agenda.

I am not sure how you are using Nessus now, but scripting via the API might be something that some sites have not yet looked into. I use a bit of Python to automatically generate and pull XML reports into Splunk and Powershell to run scans on occasion. The API is pretty powerful and fairly well documented.
The other thing that goes with Vuln scanning in general, is that it is pretty easy to run a scan and kick out a 200 page report, but without a 3rd party tool or script, generating metrics is tricky with just Nessus Pro. Splunk works well for me, though I have seen some PowerShell and Python scripts out there as well.
