(CNN) – When you’re craving a McFlurry, one of the worst things to hear is that the McDonald’s ice cream machine is broken.

The fast-food restaurant’s machines are notorious for being down.

But People Magazine reports McDonald’s may have found a solution by teaming up with a company called Kytch.

The company has developed technology that can help employees manage the machines by correcting mechanical issues caused by human error and making sure the automated cleaning cycle happens on time.

Kytch first introduced the devices in May. McDonald’s did not confirm to the magazine if any of their locations are using the new device.
