Auto Configuring 50 switches

Dear Concern, 

                        Is it possible that, i configure some command for multipale switches in one time. Main to say that, I have 50 layer 3 switches, and some time need to configure some command on all switches. Then i login all switches one by one and configure them manually. . Is there any method that i configure one command and it automatically be configured for all the switches in one time.
