Understanding SharePoint


I am just beginning to learn about SharePoint, and I want to understand if this is an appropriate platform for one of my projects.

Currently, my project involves a very large excel spreadsheet (~23 MB) that is set as shared. Multiple users (<10) access this spreadsheet at the same time, filter various columns, and then input minimal information (one field that is "Yes" or "No"). This current structure is no longer working because the spreadsheet is too large: it freezes and crashes when the users try to access it, input the new field, filter columns, and save the spreadsheet.

Is SharePoint a platform where I could upload this large spreadsheet and have multiple users access it and input some information at the same time?
