Improvements to KVH website search function

Industry feedback from the KVH Communications Survey strongly suggested the search function on the KVH website, and in particular within the R&D section, needs improvement.

After investigating limited options it was decided implementing a dedicated ‘google custom search engine’ on the KVH website will be the most effective option. This option will effectively increase the ability of users to find KVH website content.

However, to use the google search to the best of its ability, and to avoid breaching Google’s Terms and Conditions, the ‘restricted’ documents on the website will need to be made available to all website users. Therefore:

  • KVH plans to open the R&D section to all users so these documents will no longer be ‘restricted’.
  • Other restricted documents, including Zespri variety information, monitoring results and variety-specific case studies, will be removed from the website and available on request.
  • The KVH Psa-V Risk Model will remain a ‘restricted’ tool for New Zealand growers, and accessible to registered users only.

If growers have any concerns, please contact KVH on 0800 665 825 or [email protected].
