Simple is good.

No need to start developing software when you don't have to.

Since you are already using spreadsheets but consistency is the issue,
why not use Google Documents, which has hosted spreadsheets, that
people can collaborate on simultaneously.

And you can also upload your existing Open Office sheets in it, so setup
is quick.

Moreover you can download them back to Open Office, so you are not
locked in at all.

You can also take a look at Google Apps Basic for email, which integrates
well with Google Docs. For example, all attachments that can be opened
in Google Documents have a "View" link that you click on right in the email.
This applies to word processing documents, spreadsheet and PDFs too.

It is free, and open enough, and you don't host anything.
