The Career Academy Pathway Success Program
123 Group has been involved in the startup, launch and marketing success of independent contracting businesses for remote workers who work from home. That just means normal people using their skills to work from home using the Internet.
We’ve been involved in some large and complicated digital technology businesses where we have used remote workers and virtual assistants as part of our team, learn more about that below.
We’re passionate about technology and great people and combine them both with intelligent, well thought and planned strategies to earn money using your knowledge and experience in:

Safety Compliance Software
We launched, trialled and commercialised one of Australia’s first contractor safety management systems in Australia called AccessID. This software program enabled large hospitals like Prince of Wales Hospital, Macquarie University Hospital, Calvary Hospital in Canberra and more to credential the staff of their major suppliers who performed work at their sites to ensure a safe work environment.
CloudPBX and Hosted Telephone Systems using VoIP
We worked with ex-Optus corporate executives to create a cloud based hosted telephone PBX system that enabled small businesses around Australia to use a corporate grade telephone system with the latest call handling features at a low monthly cost and cheap call rates.
DevOps & Agile Software Development
As part of our ongoing use of online software, technology and services our technical engineering team help companies of all sizes manage their development environment so that they can scale quickly, rapidly deploy and manage the support for their online and mobile applications.
We’ve used many different data centres and cloud hosting suppliers and now spend most of our time helping startups to corporate clients migrate to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Training, Placement & Internships
Working remotely using technology encourages businesses to systemise their work practises. This takes more work and planning but ensures a better onboarding process and a better understanding for both the worker and the employer about what needs to be done and how their work fits into the bigger picture.
These are examples where we’ve found and placed students.
Virtual Assistants in Office Administration & Online Customer Service
Data entry in MYOB & Xero, emailing and scheduling using Outlook or Google Workspace and the use of spreadsheets & presentation programs in Microsoft Office are a fundamental skills to perform these tasks.
Combined with well planned and documented procedures these tasks can be performed by most people and for most companies. With Cloud based telephone systems and Online Customer Service tools and CRM’s virtual assistants can perform most of their work from home and it’s now normal!
Accounting tasks like invoicing, credit management, bank reconciliations and payroll administration are in the same category but require skills in those accounting programs.
Writing has become more valuable with the growing use of online services and in particular for websites, landing pages, blogs and even social media content. Writing stories or descriptions is an entry level skill but combining the writing that is aligned with a digital marketing strategy makes the writer more valuable in the sales and marketing to get new clients.
Website Design and Digital Marketing
Websites are a core requirement for businesses that want to get serious about online digital marketing to find new customers. The design and functionality available at a website is the role of the website designer. This can include call-to-actions, landing pages, forms and other elements that guide potential clients to the information they are seeking. Website hosting and security is and aspect that the website designer is also involved in.
