Ready to upload your files?
- You'll need to get in touch with your KIC sales rep to obtain a username and password. Before submitting your files, be sure you give each file a unique, clearly identifiable name (e.g. you might include your name, company name and/or the job name in the filename). We recommend that you use a data compression program, such as StuffIt (Mac) or WinZip (PC) to speed the uploading process and minimize the likelihood of data corruption during transfer.
- Click the "Submit" button below to open the file upload window. (If a new window doesn't open, you may need to set your browser to allow pop-up windows from www.ki-corp.com.) In the upload window click the first "Browse" or "Choose file" button, then navigate to your file. You can select up to three files to upload at a time. When you're ready, click on the "Upload" button. A status bar will show your file transfer progress.
