Integration Deliverables by Phase

a reference table of deliverables by role/owner

Use this document as a template for creating a reference for your integration project and/or support articles. The goal of the table below is to confirm the roles and responsibilities relationship between all parties. It outlines various project stages, including Discovery, Implementation, Testing, Move to Production (launch), and Ongoing Support. Different parties may be involved at each stage, including the customer integration team, contracted third parties, and Paylocity teams. For your integration project, create a similar table, replacing the role/owner with team name and contact(s) responsible for each line item.

For the purposes of this template table, we use the following as the “Key” for Owners:

  • Customer integration team (CIT) - representing the customer contacts.
  • Third-Party Associates (TPA) - Brokers, Technology Partners, or Third-Party Administrator
  • Paylocity (PCTY) - Representing the Paylocity Team(s) that the client-team has access to.
