MS SQL Server backups - poor performance with many small databases

I have to clients with over 300 (small, <4MB) databases each and it seems that the NetWorker client for MS SQL Server takes about 2.5-3 minutes per database to backup, and with this many databases that means about 14 hours per client.  Further, these two clients take about 30 minutes just to START backing up due to the various checking and setup NetWorker does at the start of a job.

Is there any way to speed this up?

NetWorker 8.2 and SQL Server 2012 Express.
