    also, if you see any problems, could you check them?

    ...it too wordy?
    We are glad to inform you that we are happy to take your advice.
    ::Yes, I find it a bit too wordy. Try "We are glad to inform you that we will take your advice." However, why are you glad about informing?

    ::or try "We write to inform you that we are happy to take your advice (in this matter)"

    :: or just "We are happy to take your advice (in this matter / regarding...)."

    ::It depends on exactly where you use it, but saying that you are both 'glad' and 'happy' in the same sentence seems a bit much to me.

    There is really no problem with this one, as long as 'system development project' is a name or term that the readers know.
