I reported this suggestion by email, here the complete text:

Let the user automatically start SUMo with windows.
SUMo runs in the background (minimized to the system tray).
Let the user specify a check interval (default: once per week).
Here the user can specify other intervals (like once per day, every [edit field] hours, every [edit field] days).

If the time interval is reached, then SUMo checks in the background for updates (very important: SUMo should use very less system resources here).

When there is a new update, that was not listed before, show a notification (also in the Windows 10 message center).

"New Update that is not listed before" means:
When SUMo reports me yesterday 10 updates and today two new updates are found (so I have 12 updates in my list) then show a message for the 2 new updates.

The "Kaspersky Software Updater" is really a poor tool, absolutely crap.
It finds no updates for my installed applications, SUMo found 20.

But on their homepage I found an image (see attached file).
This image shows a notification window, when a new update was found.
In this window you see that there are also the buttons "Remind me later" and "Details".

Such a notification window would be useful for SUMo.
Also the two buttons.

Maybe you should try "Kaspersky Software Updater" and "Update Star" in a VM.
There you get many useful ideas :-)

I read on a German PC magazine that Kaspersky implemented an software updater in Kaspersky Total Security 2017:
http://www.chip.de/news/Kaspersky-2017-Hotspot-Shield-und-Software-Updater-eingebaut_99513341.html

So Kaspersky implemented the "Kaspersky Software Updater" in their products!
I downloaded the stand-alone version and tested it.

Here you see how this is working (I stay at SUMo, I write this so you get some new ideas).

The "Kaspersky Software Updater" starts at Windows startup, users see a small icon in the system tray.
It automatically checks for available updates in the background.
If there are updates available, the "Kaspersky Software Updater" shows a notification window.
In this window users see a large counter and the text "2 Updated Found".
There are the buttons "Remind me later" (where you can choose a delay) and "Details".
See KasperskySoftwareUpdater_01_Notification.png

When you click on "Details" then a window opens where you see more details.
In this window you see the large counter again, but also a list of applications and the new (available) version number.
In front of each application there is a checkbox where you can select the entry.
Above the list there is a checkbox to select all entries.
Behind each application there is also a link to the License Information.
As soon as you have at least one entry selected, the button "Update" gets enabled.
See KasperskySoftwareUpdater_02_AvailableUpdates.png

After you pressed on "Update" the download starts.
Behind the application name and version you see the text "(Downloading Files)".
The big counter at the top is replaced with an "Moving Circle" animation.
Below this animation you see the text "Installation in Progress...." and a percentage.
See KasperskySoftwareUpdater_03_Download.png

After the download the installation starts automatically.
Behind the application name there is the text "Installing".
Here the normal "Setup.exe" (the installer) is executed, so you see some dialogs where you need to interact.
See KasperskySoftwareUpdater_04_Installation.png

The Kaspersky Software Updater is out of beta now and has some changes in the UI.
Please download and test the current version and adapt this to SUMo

This feature would be awesome because SUMo would run in the background and scan for updates automatically and alert me about new updates (show available updates in a popup notification).
Add in the settings two time periods for:
- automatic scan for new software (default value: 2 days)
- automatic check for new updates (default value: 1 day)

So PLEASE implement this soon!
Thank you!
