I recently began working at a small company as a software developer. Before I started, their only means of version control was Microsoft Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. Now that I've started, I'd like to get some form of distributed version control in place (preferably Git or Github).
Version control, as a concept, makes life, organization, and stability much easier for even singular developers, but the company I work for is hesitant. I know with time they might come around, but it's something I'm getting anxious to implement as staying organized is extremely difficult without it. Things like code branches and rollbacks are difficult, manual tasks that could be completely automated with version control. As a whole, version control would make my life easier along with the lives of other developers that might join me or come after me.
How can I convince them to get version control implemented sooner? Should I try to convince them? Should I leave it be and wait for them to come around on their own or reemphasize the importance of this even though I've already talked to them about version control as a possibility?
