Some McDonald’s franchisees are teaming up with software company Kytch, which has developed a technology that can detect and correct minor malfunctions within the machine, as well as provide employees with detailed information regarding the machine’s issues, Business Insider reported.

Since the device launch in 2019, several McDonald’s locations have reportedly implemented it, though McDonald’s corporate office would not confirm its use.

The device will attach to the current machines and ensure the automated cleaning cycle is scheduled properly. It can also correct issues caused by human error, like over or under-filling the machine, according to the outlet.
