I need to do a lot of these in a row so it would be important for me to be efficient

I don't see that option supported in Tools > Settings... > Interface -- Shortcuts tab so it would probably have to be added, I am looking at v1.0 rather than the latest v10.1 though, so you might also check that.

Otherwise, it shouldn't be difficult to create a custom shortcut using one of the scripting utilities such as AutoHotkey, see the list of other scripting utilities at the end, one might be simpler to set up if you are unfamiliar with scripting utilities.

Note that my experience with this type of scripting was brief and a long time ago, but I would expect you to be able to record a mouse click on that button, and then assign a keyboard shortcut to the script to run it.

Some scripting utilities include a macro recorder, which can make it easier to create a simple script, including the utilities in this longer list of tools that could be useful to create a script as a workaround in the absence of existing support for a 'Crop, Save and Next' keyboard shortcut.
