The Guest Experience Manager (GXM) provides a central platform for the individual guest profiles available in the hotel group. You can search for, locate, edit, and add central profiles and their details. This includes group-wide information. Guest Profile details include guest preferences, payment and guest card details, activities relating to the guest, campaigns the guest has received, stays, revenue and other relevant information.

Signing into Guest Experience Manager
You can sign into Guest Experience Manager via the NextGuest CRM Portal, by entering the web address directly, or via the App Launcher icon in the top navigation bar available from any of the NextGuest CRM applications.
- Sign into the NextGuest CRM portal.
- Select Guest Experience Manager.
The system displays the Guest Experience Manager start page with the profile search options and the navigation on the left.
Searching for a central guest profile
Using the Search page in Guest Experience Manager, you can search for existing guest profiles according to varying search criteria. For example, by guest card, profile details, or profile status. You can also carry out partial searches on the name and city fields.
- In the guest profile search page, enter your search parameters.
You can search by entering the first letters of the first name and last name and add stay criteria, for example, a hotel selection. For a description of the available search fields, see the table below.
- For a quick search, use the Profile Quick Search field on top.
Here you can search for any information available anywhere in the guest profile. Additionally, you can search for any part of the name, first name, and city by prefacing the string with a percent sign %.
For example,if you enter %eckle in the Profile Quick Search field,
The system returns all guests whose guest profile contains this string anywhere in the name or other fields, such as for example guests named Checkley, Eckler, Steckler, Beckles, Beckler, etc.
Since any part of the guest profile is queried, this search may take a tick longer.
- When you have entered your search parameters, select the Apply option in the top-right corner or press Enter to start the search. The system displays all matching guest records in a tiled view.
Please ignore the "xxxs" in some of the profile tiles. They have been anonymized for privacy reasons. You can see at one glance the value of each guest by the stay, hotel, night, and revenue information displayed in the thumbnails below each tile.
By default, the system displays the most recent profiles first. You can change the sorting order by selecting another order from the drop-down available in the top-right corner of the profile dashboard.
For a description of the tiles and how to view and edit profile details, see NextGuest CRM - Guest Experience Manager - how to view and edit guest profile details.
