What's the best document version control system or app?

I'm looking for an easy, hopefully inexpensive way to keep company-wide track of the latest versions of documents. We have a lot of decks, spec sheets, and product info that we're constantly updating as individuals and need to sync on these things as a group so we're not duplicating work. I've seen a few applications, but they look super old, clunky, and expensive. I'm also open to stringing a few things together.

    The GitHub desktop apps make version control very approachable without having to know Git commands.

    I think Dropbox has really good version control, especially on a paid version. Then, things are also shareable online.

    We also use Confluence for document versioning. It isn't what it's built for, but we use Confluence for documentation, and it versions documents really well.

    Quip 3.0

    Work with people, not files. Now with spreadsheets.

    I really love Quip. I don't think it covers your slide deck use case. But for documents and basic spreadsheets, it definitely does. I find it more approachable/easy to use than google docs.

      Quip enhances the idea of Google Docs with more advanced collaboration functions which is great if you are looking for one place to work and communicate with your team on documents.
