Is there an easy way to create inset maps?

I need to create maps like the one attached, which contain many inset maps.  The only way I know to create an inset map is to follow the directions at this link: Esri Mapping Centre - Ask a Cartographer  The customer I'm supporting is not using arc gis currently and so will have to create many, many of these inset maps.  Is there an easy way to do this?  As you can see from the attachment, the inset maps are always just blown up areas of something visible in the map already.  They are "zoomed in" windows to an area of interest.  Sometimes there are several on one page.


If the customer uses the directions in the link above, it will takes a very long time to create these inset maps.  They have hundreds to generate.  If you have any ideas on how to make this easier, please let me know.
