Imaginet has worked with FRC since their involvement with the project began. Initial requirements were small web & email hosting, basic remote communications seamless expansion to accommodate the predicted growth of the FRC's presence at the mine site and the regional headquarters in Makati City, Manila.

Imaginet works with FRC to manage current requirements and fute needs. Using an agreed standard transparent accounting system of open book/cost plus Imaginet designed, implemented and now maintains the following:
