    The files, emails, and software needed to use them are uploaded to the site.

    Gramatically correct. However, for clearer meaning, you might try:

    The files, emails, and software needed to use them have been uploaded to the site. (They were uploaded at some time in the past and are still there now.)

    The files, emails and software needed to use them were uploaded to the site at/on [date/time]. (Indicates the specific time in the past that the uploading took place).

    The files, emails and software needed to use them are uploaded to the site every Monday. (The uploading is a recurring event that takes place every monday.)
