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

The ice cream machines are notorious for being down. But People reports McDonald’s may have finally found a solution to the problem by teaming up with a company called Kytch.

Kytch 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. Since its launch, several McDonald’s locations across multiple franchisees have implemented the device.
