This is how users is created write now:
1)copy user that has similar work tasks and member of relevant groups
2)Change  about five or six settings that is the same for all users
3)Add unique information like office description, phone number etc.
3)Log on as user and configure outlook(set up account and change some settings).

Can we use a template or script or something to simplify this process?

Yes of course. You can create appropriate template in script using DS Tools or PowerShell. I can help you with DS Tools if you're interested :)
