Use the save button in the IPTC Stationery Pad and create an XMP file.  Then load it on the other systems.

Otherwise, it is saved in the preferences db which you won't be able to copy across systems (at least I don't think it would be likely to work.)

You could drag and drop it onto the Photo Mechanic application and it will load it, or you could load it from within the IPTC Stationery Pad directly by clicking the load button and selecting the file.

So there is no way to drop the file to users machine, without user intervention ?

No.  The IPTC Stationery Pad is otherwise loaded/saved from/to the preferences database.  It's an SQLite db so if you can write your own SQL, you could make a query to fetch the data and then push it to the db on each client machine.  We've never had anyone do that, but it should be possible.
