Admin user can bulk upload/update multiple products and currency price points

The problem we are facing is that--today--our only mechanism for adding new products (and rate plans, charges) and updating products/rate plans/charges is through the UI. This can be prone to human error as each entry must be keyed in separately and manually. We will be adding and updating Products/rate plans/charges at an increasing frequency and manual keyed entries will not scale.
We would like a bulk update tool that is usable by a business/non-technical user.
Without diving too deeply into a solution, I believe we would be well served by having a simple tool that accepted, validated, and set up new and updated items through some upload process--for example of a comma-separated value file--with manual steps only to verify the data to be added/updated. This could be through the UI or a RESTful API.
Another possible solution could be more of a "grid-view" into the products/rate plans/charges that allow for multiple data entries on a single pane of view, but this may not be effective for certain use cases.

I was about to post this a a suggestion, lucky i searched first and found this. Our company does price updates on all of our charges twice a year. Currently i manually update each charge on each rate plan - would be fantastic to have the ability to do this in bulk.

Is there an update on this idea? We're interested in this functionality as well and were thinking of developing tools to solve this.
