use only office, setup only office server and connect using only office app in owncloud.
After that you can start office works in webbrowser.

Let me know you want more info about this

OnlyOffice is a biggie.  
CollaBora is another one
With more document management try Alfresco. (this is more like sharepoint, or a straight sharepoint drop in).

Both are based on LibreOffice as a server.

Then there are Etherpad and Ethercalc if you don't need large tools, but only work together in a text document or spreadsheet.
