Sharepoint/Infopath front end vs. Access Database (2010) published to SP

Sharepoint/Infopath front end vs. Access Database (2010) published to SP

I would welcome some feedback here. This site has been awesome over the years.
I need to come up with a design...currently we get spreadsheets with questions and answers (lots of them!) and we need to track them.
Mostly "Yes","No" values and up to 100 questions per country, per business type. (There are 6 types of Businesses). The users are all over the world and of course not everyone is on the same version of anything.
I was thinking of using a Sharepoint Site with Infopath front end for the questions....(I have a good amount of Infopath experience) and submit the data to an Access database once the user completes the questions as apposed to building an Access front end that may have all these fields and questions etc...

From the sound of this, multiple spreadsheets from multiple countries different business types.....So so many questions.... doen't a
Sharepoint/Infopath design sound like it makes more sense than a Sharepoint/Access front end.
If I wanted to use TABS with Access forms....wouldnt I have limitations to how large the screen would be.
