What is Elevate?

Elevate is the combination of software and infrastructure recipes and ingredients we use to design, build and deploy our software.

Elevate includes a large library of pre-built and constantly updated modules that are used in both Activ8 and customer software projects. These modules are designed to operate together and work as part of our infrastructure stack.

The Elevate set of software and infrastructure recipes are at the heart of our ability to quickly and cost effectively solve customer problems with performant software.

Some example software modules in our Elevate library include:

TARGA Micro Services

Many of the services and modules within Elevate operate using an architecture that consists of a group of micro-services - each specialising and optimised for a specific task.

Often these services are external to our platform and we need to communicate outside the data centre. TARGA provides this connectivity between the modern API's offered by external services. Its how we connect our solutions to the outside world to perform actions or embed within your own software systems. Examples include:

  • Deputy API Integration
    Management, Resource & Timesheet Integration (eg. create rosters, users etc)

  • Xero API Integration
    eg. creating and updating invoices, quotes, purchases, employees, balances & reporting

  • NDIS
    eg. bulk claim uploads, remittance downloads, payment request downloads

  • Safety Culture API Integration
    eg. creating and running actions, workflows, sharing & exporting audit results

  • Dynamics 365 CRM Integration
    eg. schools and companies using a Microsoft backend for their contact/student data can be integrated with Activ8’s software using the TARGA -> Dynamics 365 Integration. Pull student or contact details, push updates back to Dynamics and more

  • MYOB Enterprise & Premier
    There are still many sites using the locally installed MYOB versions that dominated the Australian account landscape from the 90’s up until recently. TARGA can act as a gateway and translation layer between the legacy ODBC systems of MYOB to extract and transform MYOB’s underlying data structure for use elsewhere.

  • Twilio
    eg. full message API integration - SMS, MMS, Voice automation from your application

  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 (NAV & Business Central)

  • Campaign Monitor
    eg. creating campaigns, synchronising subscriber lists, managing clients

  • Amazon Web Services
    including File Storage with S3, updating of WAF rulesets, running Lambda functions

  • Mail Chimp
    eg. creating campaigns, synchronising subscriber lists, managing clients
