Odyssey Privilege Control System (PCS) is a system that maintains cash-less spending accounts for Students, Faculty, and Staff. Account behavior is controlled by a plan—a group of spending privileges. Each patron is a member of one plan, and the spending privileges are the same for all patrons on the same plan. Patrons use their ePantherID card, other media (RFID, mobile credentials), to pay for services. PCS manages all of the resident meal plans, gold accounts, etc. It also interfaces with GET an online platform where card holders can manage their accounts and Ugryd that allows local businesses to accept the UWM gold account. It is used to create the ePantherID Cards for campus.
Support for Privilege Control System (PCS) is provided Student Affairs Technology staff, and staff within University Housing and Retail Services.
