Access database, Office 365 / sharepoint - create a multiuser online database app?

I currently use skydrive for sharing office docs such as Excel, Word.  What I need to do is to create a central database with several (less than 10) users, all of which will need to add information via varying forms.  I have evaluated several online database applications but have not found one yet at a price point / functionality level that I am happy with.

 

In order to solve this problem I am trying to figure out if I can use MS Access via sharepoint (Office 365) for this purpose.  Specifically I would need to create a database with different views, forms and reports that everyone in my team (in various countries) can use (add edit view).

 

After surfing on this topic the advice I have been able to find currently seems to be contradictory with regard to Access's functionality / ability to function in this kind of multi-user internet model.

 

Can anyone offer any insight into whether Access can be used in this way, how well it works and what licensing would need to be purchased if it does?
