Our Implementation Consultants are responsible for understanding small business client needs and configuring our applications to meet those needs.

The Implementation Consultant will ensure accurate conversion of payroll and human resource data from clients' previous providers, by balancing converted data to reports and tax returns and work cohesively with clients utilizing system output reports to confirm and test setup. Once data is successfully converted, the Implementation Consultant will provide first level support to our clients until their transition to our Client Services team. Paylocity is committed to providing our clients with a high level of service; this position is responsible for maintaining this commitment within our Implementation area.
