In the extensive modernisation project of RDW ICT described below, our solutions and products have impressively demonstrated that they successfully solve extensive and complex tasks by their methodical basis and extraordinary high degree of automation.
We are particularly proud of the statement by Gerard Doll, Director ICT, RDW regarding the successful co-operation with RDW ICT:
"Working with the people from Delta proved to be a very good choice. They delivered when other companies couldn’t. From RDW’s point of view Delta is a highly dedicated company with an even higher level of expertise. All the people from Delta we met have this dedication and expertise. And as a bonus: they are also very nice people to work with.
We have done business with a lot of companies but this is the first time I can, without holding back, truly recommend one: Delta has proven that it is a reliable and trustworthy partner."
