Do you need bi-directional collaboration?  If you do, I doubt there's a
solution out there.  Collaboration with people using MS based tools is
challenging (being polite here).

xlsx is XML based so you could, in principle, read the information
directly from the xl/worksheets/sheetN.xml component in the file (the
xlsx file itself should be a zip archive).  The format will consist of
entries such as

<row r="1" ...><c r="A1"...<f>FF</f><v>XX</v></c>...</row>

where FF would be the formula (and XX the value of that formula) for
entry in A1.  Lots of detail omitted in the above, mind you.
