Configuring / Setting up large numbers of iPads?

In the holidays I set up 10 iPads. It took a long time to configure each of the settings in the various areas on each of the iPads, set up internet/wireless, email accounts, webDAV, iCloud, and the apps that had their own settings, etc etc etc. On Friday someone at YooBee alerted me to the iPhone Configuration Utility 3.3 for Mac OS X, saying that I might find this useful in setting up large numbers of iPads.

Has anyone here used this? Or what do you use to make this job easier with all the settings that need to be configured?

Thanks!

    Admittedly it was 12months or so ago, but when I used this utility you could email the config file produced then open it up and install on the device.  Which made sense because we were distributed across multiple sites and doesn't use cables, but is really no easier than just plugging each in...  Was really good for installing wireless profiles and proxy settings etc.  I'm not sure what new settings are available relative to iOS5 though,
