Working with us is going to be demanding, also promising to be a rewarding opportunity in fast career development and opportunities to travel occasionally overseas. Servicing our customers is our number one priority, we try our best to give them what we promise and deliver what we say. Our company focuses on good supply chain management.

This paragraph is from a job advertisement. Can I use change it to "to give them what we have promised", in order to show that I promised them something in the past and keep the promise up to now and fulfill it"?

    Yes, you can! Here's a completely different but analogous example that may make it clearer:

    "I generally proofread what I write before posting it." :tick:
    "I generally proofread what I've written before posting it." :tick:
