Separating eDelta from most of our competitors, is our mission and applied practice of quality assurance. Prior to submitting each element of our service deliverables, we will map completed work back to the initial and underlying objectives of that deliverable. This important process has allowed the quality of our work to consistently remain as best in class within our industry.
