Looking for a very robust but reasonably-priced online accounting system for small business

I'm trying to find an online accounting system (for use in the US) that is very robust in terms of being a non-dumbed down, full-featured accounting system with A/R, A/P, G/L, inventory, and cash management.

NetSuite and Interprise Suite are pricey due to having so much other non-accounting functionality such as CRM.

Popular online applications like QuickBooks Online, Wave, Xero, Freshbooks, etc. are not heavy-duty enough for my needs. For example, they either don't have inventory management at all, or if they do, you can't receive in inventory items and post the vendor invoice separately at a future date by using a holding account (inventory purchase receiving or whatever). In offline QuickBooks, you need to use the Enterprise version (and with Enhanced Inventory turned on) in order to do that.

I'm looking for something that costs up to about $100 month for a very small company (less than 5 users). That's roughly equivalent on a yearly basis to what it costs to buy a license for QuickBooks Enterprise.

Someone suggested Intacct but it's apparently quite a lot more than $100 per month.

Does anyone have any suggestions for an online accounting system that matches this description?

What about the sorts of companies that come up in a search for "QuickBooks Hosting"? Would any of those work for you?

I don't know about multiple differentiated users (I share a login), but Quickbooks Enterprise Remote Access covers similar needs for me for $3.95/month (plus the software, of course).
