Faster way than what?

You could use something like mkrdns to automatically generate reverse DNS zones from your forward zones. I've used mkrdns for a long time, it's a nice tool.

If it's for public IPs, typically your provider is the only delegate for reverse DNS. You may be stuck requesting it from them every time you need to make a change.

If it's for internal IPs, they are just regular resource records, so you should use the same system you use now for forward addresses.
