Version Control Benefits
Eliminate Document Mistakes
Being able to restore older versions of a document means you can eliminate mistakes! If the changes you've made need to be undone, you can simply rollback to an earlier version of the document.
Version Control means that everybody on your team is able to work freely on any document at any time. There's no question what the latest version of a document is - no more shouting through the office that you are currently working on document "xyz"!
Understanding What Happened

Comply With Laws
