Without a shadow of doubt, you must use have here since you must refer to new techniques so A and E are out. D sounds akward so kick it. Between B and C I would go with B, though I could be wrong, because my head is aching like crazy now...

In B, greater and than is seperated by too many preposition/noun phrase. I thought it should be closer.

moreever, in B "in greater detail" is seperated by comma indicating that it is not important.

than ever before is misplaced in B. It should be closer to the verb it modifies.

Agree with Duttsit. (C)

C is best in terms of tense too. we need present perfect tense because "New techniques" are already in place. therefore too C is correct.
