We use Windows Server Backup in Windows 2008 R2 and 2012 R2 for backups. Is there a way to get information or a report from our servers to see if the backups that we have scheduled are successful or not?

Windows Backup creates an Event if backup was successful (you can find details here). You could enable Information Event scanning and set up EMail-Alerts for this event ID, but this will cause a big load on your whole network and on your Lansweeper server as Information events will be collected from all computers.

Possibly it would be better to generate a script which searches for this event ID and gives back a result, i.e. on a file share. You could set up a regular deployment schedule to deploy it on the relevant servers each day or each week.
